    Some of the worst in the game industry

    Pros

    Working on games that share (and really only share) a big name from my childhood.

    Cons

    • Toxic, aggressive, and discriminatory leads / management in the Client Developer department. Senior / Lead engineers can use conniving corporate-styled tactics to stonewall development of people they don't personally see as a friend just to try and get them fired or quit. I have seen great people leave or be removed from the toxic culture. Management will not listen to these stories, because they are so clueless and disconnected that they only care about numbers. • The games made at TPCi are NOT the "real" mainstream Pokemon games. The games department here are the ones that churn out the crappy game-clones with Pokemon on the name. You know the ones, you never bother to download them and they always get crap reviews. • This is a multi-billion $$$ company, and they do not have any stock benefits like any other multi-billion $$$ company gives to their employees. They have a very tiny bonus, better than nothing but not great. The bonus amount seems arbitrarily decided when other companies are more clear on how bonuses are decided on. • They are expanding too fast. There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a huge gutting on the current growth. It's only a matter of time before they see the toxic video games department is simply dead weight on their bottom line with stale, bad ideas.

    HR doesn't care about you

    Pros

    Great benefits and receive company products.

    Cons

    HR doesn't support you. Only support Managers. If you are not happy and are in a conflict with your manager, you will always be kicked out. Doesn't matter who you are. There is no loyalty.

    A job that is somewhat nice, just has a big issue: Reshiram and Zekrom

    Pros

    Office building is nice, some people you can get along with,

    Cons

    They are aware of the issue with characters like Reshiram and Zekrom having designs that are too much like the hate group known as the ku klux klan and there is even another review on this page explaining it. Management is not too friendly when it comes to change and they think controversy is better than fixing the designs.

    Racism, lies, poor management

    Pros

    I worked here for a short time and I put my 2 weeks in. I would say the physical environment is nice and modern. There’s nothing much to say positive about TPCi…

    Cons

    I can’t stand the racism and politics in this company! I attempt to assist customers and they make us lie to them saying we sent their feedback. Reshiram and Zekrom have a design that people done like because of them being similar to a Ku Klux Klan member. The stripes on their tails and the colors of the pokemon, with the head shaping and animations of them burning a cross or doing a racist white supremacist salute.

    Truly one of the best places to work in the industry

    Pros

    Pokemon truly cares for it's employees as much as it does it's fans. The company is very deliberate and thoughtful about it's products as well as it's strategic plan in the entertainment industry. It is a fantastic place to call home!

    Cons

    With only one IP to love and safeguard, things can move slow sometimes within the Company.
