I worked at Konami as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

This was my second experience in the gaming industry that basically cemented me wanting to continue on into the industry. I loved the people that I got to work with and am still connected with some of them today. Some of the people that I worked with were promoted through the company and got to become Producers and Product Managers.

Cons

The fun corporate culture that I've since experienced at other companies seemed almost non existent at Konami. Very little development work is done at this office so there's not much control over the products.

    The company didn't respect employer. The management is inefficiency. They only want to do some outsourcing work in China. They didn't know how to sell games in China.

    Advice to Management

    They should follow the trend of game industry.
