Pros

Good parties, people are hard working and team players, Fun environment to work in - games are sold at lower prices to employees.

Cons

Not a great company for advancement. Some managers are not good at managing and it's incredibly frustrating. No ESPP, no option grants for anyone below VP level.

Advice to Management

Recognize that middle managers work hard and contribute and deserve more than what you are giving. options should be given to everyone not just the higher ups. bring back ESPP

    Pros

    Entertainment industry, the people you meet, highly competant employees.

    Senior management and their egos. How did some of these people get to where they are at anyway? Senior management has lost control of what's really going on with the people who actually do the real work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect the people that support you.
