    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    they respect your weekends. the weekends are yours unless it gets very busy but then they will try not to make you work on your weekends. in turn the weekdays might be longer at crunch mode but you do get OT. they won't offer a higher position unless you have some type of interest in the position. if you need to take time off for certain reasons its fairly easy to request time off unless your in chrunch mode. if your responsible and cover your hours accordingly you can take time in the day to excercise and do your preventative care.

    Cons

    like any big video game company(100+employees) your just a number. they don't look at your tenure or what you have accomplished, being layed off is common. with 100+ employees perks might be hard to come by but at least do something to let your employees know that they're appreciated. as aways the political game is played here as well. if a boss likes you then you're favored. we usually don't get much feedback since work is pretty consistent and constant. down time has been far inbetween. most of the crunch time modes coincide with usual vacation months summer time and xmas times.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your workers not with words but with action.

    Pros

    Very interesting industry. Great products. Very nice people at middle management level and below.

    Cons

    Grueling hours and no respect for work-life balance. Sr Management is more concerned with their personal bottom line than with grooming and furthering growth of their employees. Head of HR does not care about people and runs the entire group without personal touch. If you are below Director, you are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Show more of an interest in the professional development of your team and they will reward you with the kind of results you are looking for. Get rid of the churn-and-burn mentality and treat everyone with respect and recognition for the work that they do.

    I have been working at Take-Two full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a decent place to work not many Pros though. Nice clean office, free drink, coffee machines, standard stuff.

    Cons

    The company does not care about the environment. There is no recycling program in the offices, loads of waste is just dumped into standard trash bins.

    The company does not care about charities, no special programs for volunteering and donations.

    The office is not disable friendly, there are not ramps an special facilities.

    In general the company makes money and pays the tax without caring about local communities, people in need, sustainability etc. Shame for such a big and global corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Think about this, stop taking from community, start contributing back.

    Pros

    Nice place to work, great games, challenges and experience.

    Cons

    Low salary, no social life support, same routine, overtime not paid, no space to grow, one small mistake can cost you any chance to grow although limited, unless you know the right people. No pay rise.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees at a personal level, with inflation going up and no overtime paid a person is simply home-work-home, not worth it. Open more positions, people can stay 3+ years in the same role with no advancement AT ALL.
