    I have been working at Take-Two full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A strong and immersive community that LOVES games A commitment to Evolution, incentivizing new ideas and strategies Office is right in Times Square, easy to access for almost any New Yorker

    Cons

    Office is right in Times Square, easy to access for almost any tourist! Been here for only a few months, so this isn't my experience, but Rumor has it that opportunity for growth can be challenging to achieve. While Take-Two at large is a shining community, some departments seem to not receive the love and care that others do.

    Advice to Management

    Work out effective long term AND realistic strategies with employees for their career growth. Departmental heads should look to showcase appreciation through mini-celebrations that ultimately boosts morale.
