    I have been working at Multimedia Games full-time

    Pros

    Fun and productive work environment, fantastic career training, and great benefits. Teamwork is actively encouraged, and opportunities to collaborate, troubleshoot, and learn make working here incredibly rewarding. Despite growing pains, company is picking up steam. Excited to see what we can achieve in the coming years, and highly optimistic for the future of this company.

    Cons

    Growing pains are difficult, but will likely fade through active and transparent communication. It would be fantastic to create the sense of a cohesive team among all studios and locations.

    Advice to Management

    We want to help! Communicate actively and recognize the individual needs of each studio, and let us know what's going on.

    I worked at Multimedia Games

    Pros

    Good company, good people, relax working environment.

    Cons

    Its all about pushing deadlines with minimal staffing. People get burned out quick and its never enough money to go around to producers.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with the employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great, clean environment, and free coffee.

    Cons

    Things started off great, but now... Overbearing management is regularly difficult. Little to no creative freedom and lots of over-the-shoulder guidance. Lot of egos and control freaks with little to no social skills will run you into the ground. There's now a feeling of soullessness where I used to enjoy my work. Management is heartless and dictatorial. Every day is a new bit of drama and the atmosphere is heavy...

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to fix what isn't broken. Let people do their jobs and communicate in kindness. More than half of my co-workers are actively seeking employment elsewhere. If you want to fix anything, fix that. Help people enjoy their jobs again. When socializing, have positive discussions, be encouraging.

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Multimedia Games

      Pros

      none to speak of ... clean environment

      Cons

      Click atmosphere, no training, management as poor personal skills

      Pros

      Some great people still left

      Cons

      There's definitely a difference between Multimedia Games and Everi Games.

      Advice to Management

      Stop doing what you're doing. Just about all of it.

      Pros

      Great people in a great town. Fun products with list of creative opportunities!

      Cons

      Seriously bad at merging technology. Living in Austin provides an opportunity to see different companies merge and join forces. This merger is so clunky! It's been months and the tech systems are not even united yet. Communication is terrible because of this and it's really hard to share things with the Vegas side with such technology problems. And there hasn't been any plan announced to fix any of it! Open enrollment...

      Advice to Management

      Get your IT house in order! We are trying to become one company but it's really hard when we all still work on different systems TEN MONTHS AFTER MERGER!!

      I worked at Multimedia Games for more than 3 years

      Pros

      There were a lot of great people to work with, including some of the management. Benefits were good. The work was generally interesting. Austin is a great city.

      Cons

      The core of management functioned strictly on favoritism. The clique mentality was extremely obvious and destroyed any real feeling of team spirit and added a lot of inefficiency. Company very stingy with funds allocated to non-executive compensation.

      Advice to Management

      Base opportunity on merit, not clique status. Have employees review their immediate management in addition to having management review their employees.

      I worked at Multimedia Games full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The company is not going away. It has enough recurring revenue and money in the bank to coast for quite a while despite its massive debt load.

      Cons

      The family atmosphere, the fun, and the comradery are gone. The salary's used to be competitive, but they are now stagnating while the rest of the jobs in that field in Austin are raising wages quickly. In one situation my job title changed so that they could say I was making closer to 100% industry average than I was before. Nice trick. On paper it looked like a 7% raise, in reality it was about 2%. To top it off, mobility...

      Advice to Management

      Go back to the roots of Multimedia. The sense of family, the fun, and the insane amount of talent lead to monumental growth. Turning GCA/MGAM into the HP/Compaq merger is not the way to go...

      Pros

      The only pro left are the employees in Austin.

      Cons

      Too many to count. Worst company ever since GCA took over.

      Advice to Management

      Why bother, they would not listen anyway. Top heavy & all they care about is padding their pockets.
