    I have been working at Scytl full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nothing, the CEO will soon enough bankrupt the company. Good people simply just go away when they see the disaster

    Cons

    C-Level all wrong; specially the CEO, lacks good judgement and only hires yes man people. No product; terrible delivery, back office all kids, only those friends of Valles survive

    Advice to Management

    Board of Directors; wake up! Its your money

    I worked at Scytl

    Pros

    They hire good people to do the grunt work. Some of the most intelligent people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Horrible Management. Verbally abusive and unprofessional.They recently laid off over 40% of U.S. staff. They have no direction and are operating on a hope and a prayer. The benefits are very poor and are not in line with competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Get signed contracts before you staff up.

    "good people, questionable management"

      I worked at Scytl full-time

      Pros

      They seem able to bring in good people Interesting work The office is pretty nice and they try to do things for morale

      Cons

      They can't keep people Most people in the U.S. have been with the company 12-18 months or less. The U.S. office had problems with headquarters trying to run things from long distance, so they said that in 2015 the US would have more autonomy but that has not held true.

      I worked at Scytl full-time

      Pros

      Very good colleagues. There are very good people that you can meet there and that you can learn from. But all of them are continually leaving the company which is normal taking into account that this company doesn't care about anyone working there.

      Cons

      if i explain all the downsides no one will believe that words. Just read the other comments. But the most important ones are: Work/life balance - 0 Career opportunities - 0 Management - -1

      Advice to Management

      Management? There is no management in that company.
