    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People are nice and everyone gets along. Locations is perfect for people that live in San Francisco in SOMA.

    Cons

    All major decisions are made in Paris and senior management does not know strategic objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a fair wage and there will be less turnover from employees

    Pros

    It's a French company so a lot of the mentality is French - lots of time off, free food, and a guaranteed paycheck as long as you don't mess up egregiously. Also, you get to play games at work (duh), the office is in a great location near ATT Park, you definitely get the wow factor when you bring people through the building. It seems like a fun place to work and most of the time it is.

    Cons

    Management puts you in a prescribed role and keeps you there. Some of the employees are nice and cool but a lot of them fall into the gamer geek category - no social skills, bad skin, you know the type. Pay is much less than at other companies, because they figure you really want to work in video games you are willing to take a pay cut.
