      Awful Leadership

      Pros

      Great people working hard to make a difference despite the caustic executive management.

      Cons

      CEO has his boot lickers. There is a strong "Good Old Boys" club at Buzztime. He surrounds himself with "yes" men. If you are a woman... well do the math. The CEO is very condescending while he tries to act like everyone's friend. To hear some of the comments he makes in meetings about people not present is appalling.

      Pros

      Working with a gaming company

      Cons

      Super old technology, anything they have “new” is just lipstick on an old pig or doesn’t work. HR is about as dishonest as they get. Allen Wolff the current CEO has zero attention span for anyone that isn’t part of his “yes” people and will lie to anyone for his benefit.

      Communication us key

      Pros

      The new building was a huge step up from the dungeon they subjected their employees to for so many years. The atmospheres fun, and trendy, bright and open. A great space to go to on the daily. The planning and investment towards this space was quite the contrary to how the business is run. The C-level staff was always approachable.

      Cons

      Leadership was challenged with communication, transparency and good old fashioned investment in one another/the team. They expected staff to read minds instead of providing processes to follow. There usually was no open dialogue just directive without context. When it comes to a solid plan ... well there just wasn't any. Daily activity was a crap shoot for what type of rabbit they wanted staff to pull out of there hat. I should have known better than to stay when on my very first day working for the company the boss said to me "your on your own, you will have to figure it out" - now that was reassuring letting me know I chose the right place to work and the right boss to work under, it truly was the beginning to the end for me.
