I have been working at Video Gaming Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good working environment that allowed me to stretch my legs and take on the tasks that fit me. Really smart people with some great ideas floating around in their heads. Fast paced environment that, when it was working, moved at a good pace.

Cons

Lack of direction and decision making from the upper management ultimately took it's toll on our office. Too many chief's syndrom made it hard to have a choice made and moved on.

Advice to Management

Listen to your people and make a choice in the time needed.

    I have been working at Video Gaming Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch. Allowed to blow off steam by playing foosball during normal working hours. Very advanced IT infrastructure.

    Cons

    * Senior management not very open, and decision making at the top seems to take forever.
    * Management makes promises it does not keep (we will move to new building, but no change 6 years later)
    * Management changes direction, sometimes contradicting itself (spent 1.5 years coming up with strategic plan for 2012, unveiled in JAN, obsolete in mid-March due to announced plant closing)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to the rest of the company more often. Make a decision, and then stick to it ... especially within the context of a strategic plan (software roadmap) for a given calendar year.
