    Pros

    Benefits (401k matching, 100% covered pretty good PPO, 20 days PTOs, pet insurance discount, etc), raise, and flexibility. Fun work environment at studio. Most of coworkers were nice talented people and pleasant to work with. Career growths for those who are good at what they do.

    Cons

    Ship was sinking. Less transparency. Time card in 2015....

    Advice to Management

    Fire people who are toxic to company culture. Encourage better work/life balance.

    I worked at Konami Digital Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    The company provides great benefits. I've never had so much PTO and holidays. Depending on what team you are in and interact with, they can be super great. However of course, there are some baddies from time to time.

    Cons

    The pay is mediocre. The company is stuck in the 90s in terms of technology. IT rules are ridiculously strict. The Japanese HQ has a lot of power over the US operations.

    Advice to Management

    Have you heard about the cloud?

    I worked at Konami Digital Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't knowingly recommend this for any reason.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, altered work week to avoid double time pay, and just full-on lies at times. Generally a down, unhappy, and uncomfortable atmosphere. Avoid if you can. Not worth it. Too many other companies.
