    I have been working at Gamesys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They really focus on real 2D art. No 3D and no photo bashing. They take pride in art and doing themes and ideas that many of the other companies will not do. In doing so, it takes them out of the same old same old slot stuff. You the Artist can pitch game theme and designs.

    Cons

    To many organizing software programs. Around 4-5 programs plus 2 emails one employee has to have.

    I worked at Gamesys full-time

    Pros

    Lots of intelligent hard working and friendly people.
    Company trying to make things better.
    Directors reasonable people who you can talk to.

    Cons

    Too much politics.
    Driven by emotion rather than logic and long term vision.
    Pockets of good practice and good behaviour but inconsistent.
    Promote some people because they say rather than do the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    See through the changes that you are trying to make to ensure that they really take hold.
    Look below the surface to see what is really happening and how, some, people are really behaving - there are some toxic people who are allowed to carry on with the same behaviours year after year.
