Suggestions for improvement

  • Provide a onsite childcare for employees. Many mothers and fathers go months without seeing their children due to industry trends and the demands of "crunch time". Remove the HR Management/Business/Facilities/and Events staff and replace them with individuals that lead by example, that are experienced with the process and needs of game development, that care about acquiring tier 1 talent, who are interested in running an ethical business with less politics. They have a ton of talent however no one challenges these individuals to achieve their maximum potential. Stop burning out your talent and set the bar higher for the upper management employees, management should lead by example not set a bad example for the other managers to follow.

What I like about the company

Great place to get your foot in the door, if you work hard (depending on who your boss is) you (or your boss) will get recognized and eventually compensated.
Awesome co-workers just don't make too many friends they won't be around for long. Fun work environment although political correctness is not valued, if you are offended easily, then this is not your ideal work place.

What I dislike about the company

The HR managers aren't particularly interested in, or equipped for, doing business. And in a business, that's a big problem.
As guardians of a company's talent, HR has to understand how people serve corporate objectives. They fail to do this in every conceivable way.

The HR management staff spends most of the year on vacation. When they are not on vacation, they are so removed from the process that they are usually the last ones in the room to know what takes place at their facility despite the numerous meetings that usually result in the transfer of information that could have been easily conveyed in an email.
The HR staff doesn't have any concern in industry trends and to be blunt they don't like the demographic they are supposed to be representing.

Nepotism has been another huge problem at that location for a long time. Many people are employed based on who they know or more importantly who they are related to and if it comes down to retaining talent or favorites/relatives, the favorites always prevail.
The real problem is that corporate and the long time company owners are constantly butting heads.
There are way too many politics at this place. For a huge company with an amazing facility, it is run by people that have no idea what they are doing and that is why I decided to work for their competitor.
