    Pros

    Not too many pros compared to other companies from I heard. I don't like the company personally

    Cons

    Very shitty pay for current employer even the company is running good. The workload is super heavy in term of the compensation.

    I have been working at Multimedia Games full-time

    Pros

    Strong company with a decent client base will likely be around for a while.

    Cons

    1) Location location location. The location is horrible.
    1a) Depending on what department you work for: inflexible work hours. Mandatory core hours force employees to drive on 360 during peak hours resulting in insane commute times.
    2) Depending on what department you work for: management can be awful. Departments run on fear. Backstabbing. Active undermining. Seriously hostile work environment type stuff.
    3) Depending on what department you work for: absolutely NO career path. In fact, when members of the team wanted to pursue alternate career paths, they were actively prohibited from doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at your middle management structure and decide if it is really worth continuing to pay those people to chase away top talent.

    If you are looking for stable employment and a paycheck, this is a solid place to work. If you want a career, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    It used to be a great place to work. One on end you have multimedia games that used to be about great customer service and friendly atmosphere. On the other end you have global cash that seems to care only about money. GCA management doesn't seem to understand customer service.

    Cons

    No direction from GCA. Former multimedia employees have no idea of where we are going. Overworked and stressful enviroment.

    Advice to Management

    Though money is important to any business. In the Gaming industry, taking care of the clients should be number one.

    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.


  5. "Think twice"

    Pros

    none to speak of ... clean environment

    Cons

    Click atmosphere, no training, management as poor personal skills

    Advice to Management

    Please review your management as they need management training

  7. "Go elsewhere if you consider your career growth important"

    Pros

    Pay is fair
    Good work/home life balance
    Unique work experience working with Indian casino gaming
    Casual work environment and dress code

    Cons

    Training is virtually nonexistent
    Disorganized in a lot of business processes
    Support from management is lacking at times
    Employees are placed in positions without consideration of their qualifications or their career path

    Advice to Management

    When you unilaterally pigeonhole your employees into undesirable positions, you're pretty much telling them you don't value them as employees and they will go elsewhere. Start treating your employees as partners instead of flunkies. Work with them on their career paths to find the best fit for both the employee and the company.

    I worked at Multimedia Games full-time

    Pros

    Casual work environment and work / life balance
    Some career growth possible
    Good location
    Ok compensation

    Cons

    Disloyal senior management trying to sell the company
    No accountability in senior management
    Too political for a company this small
    No real innovation done recently, just renaming past products
    Too much disparity between groups
    Losing talented people either voluntarily or forcing them out
    Immoral practices

    Advice to Management

    Reduce executive compensation. Invest in employees instead. Get rid of politics. Promote/commend employees who do the real work, not who are taking credit for it.

    I worked at Multimedia Games full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * If you want a job where you can sit back and be lazy, this is the place for you.
    * They tend to be very loyal, often hiring back former employees who quit or get fired. Though, I'm not sure that's a good thing.

    Cons

    Middle and upper management spend more time trying to stab each other in the back than get actual products out the door.

    * Antiquated technology
    * Antiquated thinking
    * Not a technology company.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you're a technology company, and understand what that means.
