    Great place for job rotation. Great employees.

    Need to act on opportunities before they are gone.

    I worked at Majesco Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free soda.
    Sometimes someone will say good job.

    Cons

    Getting threatened with physical abuse.
    Getting physically abused by your boss.
    Having your boss call you endlessly while you're in the hospital after a family member was seriously injured.
    Higher ups referring to talking to you and your group as "slumming it."
    Paying for health care but not being allowed to take off to use it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. You'd have saved 13 million had you listened to me. Maybe you'd still be in business.

  3. "Awful Management."

    I worked at Majesco Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were great and it is the only video game publisher on the east coast left. It was a fun place to work and there were some interesting games.

    Cons

    Management is completely inept in a rapidly changing business. They have no real grasp on the video game business and don't wish to. They also abuse the expense system for personal use.

    Advice to Management

    New management is needed for anything to change.


  4. "Working at Majesco"

    I worked at Majesco Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Majesco, was a relax place to work. My co-worker were nice and got on well with the people in my department and other department as well we were like family.

    Cons

    Sometimes didn't know what was going on in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if the officers would listen to the workers.

    Pros

    There are some great, talented people work there

    Cons

    Management is clueless on how to run the company and there is gross mismanagement of money there. The morale is at rock bottom and the top executives does not care. There is zero growth opportunity for those that have been there for years. They would rather pay someone off the street with a fake resume 6 figures and fire them in a year than move someone up.

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

    Pros

    The work environment was very casual and also stimulating. I loved my coworkers and we were making products that we had a lot of say in.

    Cons

    The company is very dated and has a terrible HR department. All of the paperwork is from the 80's, the vacation time is split into vacation, holiday, personal, sick and is very convoluted. The mindset of upper management was just very dated.

    Advice to Management

    Update everything and improve benefits to attract better employees.

    I worked at Majesco Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the few video game publishers on the East Coast.
    Not a publisher of AAA titles. Instead, focus on casual and fitness games.

    Cons

    Dysfunction in a hit-driven business and not producing hits for several years.

    Advice to Management

    Sell.
