I've only been here six months, but I feel very fortunate to have landed this position. I enjoy the work; the people in my department are amazing, and they've gone out of their way to help me in multiple ways. First of all, I have a disability, one that employers have been unwilling to make any accommodations for in the past, and management and my supervisor have been nothing but understanding and patient with me. Second, after working here less than six weeks, I was diagnosed with a serious medical condition. This resulted in me needing to take off for an hour or two for doctor's appointments and treatment, and again, they have been amazing. Third, I was in not one, but two serious car accidents during my first three months on the job, so on top of everything else I mentioned, now I had physical therapy to add on top of it. Most companies would have found a reason to terminate me at this point, but my supervisor made it clear that as long as I continued to produce high quality work and meet deadlines, he'd do everything he could to work with me including letting me work remotely one or two days a week so that I could make it to my medical appointments. The only requirement was that I make sure that I was reachable for associates in need of assistance with our system. On top of all this, the pay is solid, the benefits great, and they must have taken the complaints about the lack of culture to heart because they threw a massive Halloween festival for employees and their families and have had monthly departmental happy hour events and given away free tickets to numerous events that included the use of the company's VIP box at the T-Mobile arena. So what could there be to complain about...
There is a fairly substantial amount of corporate red tape you have to navigate through to get things done. Want to make improvements or make a process more efficient? That's going to require several proposals, half a dozen meetings, a few approval forms, authorization from half a dozen people in several different departments, three conference calls, a power point presentation to executive management, and a 3/4 vote at the next executive board meeting, but that's pretty standard for a multinational company of this size. Most decisions have far-reaching consequences, so everyone involved or affected needs a chance to say their peace and of course a board of directors is going to direct, so it is what it is. If that's the worst part about a job then you should consider yourself lucky to have it, which I do. Maybe it's different/worse in other departments, but from where I'm standing, this place is definitely an 8.5 out of 10.

Management (Games) how is it possible that two individuals can destroy a company with their poor micromanaging behavior. You manage by sitting at a desk and send demands. No assistance when needed. They will fire you for not knowing your job but the question is do they. And wonder why people keep leaving and no one wants to work there. If a company is that blind to see who is the problem who would Work there

Work life balance is fair, given a gaming company. There's an expected amount of crunch and you are not expected to work long hours regularly.
Take heed in the warnings about management. The company is mismanaged, uncaring, and disorganized to a point where I'm surprised there's still a company after all these years.

Coworkers are very pleasant to work with.
Reverse engineering the existing system is the lion's share of most tasks.

Co-workers there are nice. Paint scheme on the walls was nice.
If you like being micro-managed, then this place will be a dream come true for you. Instead of being focused on problem solving, you will be focused on counting up how many minutes you spent on each job. Technology-wise, you won't be doing anything special because they'd rather preserve antiquated legacy systems over innovation. The only thing you wind up doing is being told what to do like a drone. Too many people in middle management, and just like facebook before they had layoffs, it's weighing the company down because middle management are always pitted against one another, blaming the other teams instead of working as a team because they too concerned about their ego and what their numbers look like. There is practically no communication between each team so something that would normally be resolved in minutes may take days. Executive leadership says team-work is crucial, but middle management turns around and ignores that and ridicules top management behind their backs. There is a noticeable disconnect between executive layer and middle management layer. They are polar opposites. Top executive layer is fine. People at the bottom are fine. Middle management is where it gets nasty and people under middle management are stuck in the cross hairs. You should be concerned if you're thinking about working there.3

Ability to work full stack.
Upper Management is a total mess, and the rest of the company pays the price for it. They are disorganized and have no structure to file storage, so its nearly impossible to find what you need without asking the person who placed it somewhere. In office "benefits" are limited to a small, overprized vending area and coffee. Also, the internal track for promotions is very slow.2

I enjoy my experience. I'm learning a lot and my coworkers are extremely laid back and always willing to answer my questions
The pay is a bit too low for my liking

It's a good company with endless opportunities and benefits. They have a lot of people that work there. They work on the Slot machines.
None, it's nice I don't mind it there

The work was easy and had a very slow pace. I was never rushed to do anything.
There was no upward mobility or ways to advance. They also pay way lower than other companies in the industry.2
