    I worked at Take-Two full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people, dedicated and driven to deliver the best entertainment software experience. Tremendous amount of internal interaction and ability to approach executive management with ideas and solutions. Ability to work from home or office is a major advantage - and management supports which ever approach is best for individual productivity.

    Cons

    Demanding with 24/7 availability expected.

    Pros

    T2 has Strong leadership, outstanding and exciting products combined with a successful & clear vision. If you care about the company and it's labels you feel like you are part of it's success. T2 also makes an effort to bring the employees together with regular social programs which is great.

    Cons

    At points it could be said that there is a lot expected of you, but this is standard these days for excellent companies with a strong workforce. If you want to work for a great company, you should be great too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing and make sure that the strategies and goals are shared across the organization. At this point almost everyone believes that you have your finger on the pulse - be bold letting people hear from you and getting access to you.

    Pros

    Treated interns really well
    Interesting assignments with real-world results
    Awesome work environment
    Getting to see behind-the-scenes side of game industry

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you explain to your interns what exactly they're getting into at the end of the day

    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.

    I have been working at Take-Two full-time

    Pros

    Since I started at Take-Two (nearly 2 years ago) I've been met with constant support and plenty of learning and growth opportunities. The group in my department are fun to be around and work very hard. The goals set by my team are ambitious but reachable and most managers seem open to opportunities to grow and invest in their teams. There is a quarterly company wide presentation that keeps the company as a whole in the loop and up to date on how we're doing at a high level overview. Plus: bagels and ice cream and snacks!

    Cons

    The bagels and ice cream are only once per month...if you can consider that a con.
