    Avantages

    Free mixed nuts Some cool co-workers Overseas travel Good location although expensive garage space

    Inconvénients

    The very worst upper management I've ever experienced. There is no creative vision, no idea how to grow the company other than to fast follow other ideas, and it's very clear that the top wants to take their bonuses and leave a shell of the company behind. Anyone with brains is looking for a seat in the life boat. Karp is well-known for being the nastiest person in the industry, and he's earned that title. HR does...

    It doesn't matter. The company will be shuttered in a year or two.

    Avantages

    The average workers are amazing people.

    Inconvénients

    Since the aristocrat takeover, management have been either replaced, or hired over by soulless corporate shills that only care about making money by any means necessary. Jobs are starting to get outsourced, and multiple teams are in the process of teaching outsiders how to do their jobs. So may people are leaving we have started clumping their going away parties together. Meanwhile, they tell us that everything is fine,...

    Avantages

    Depending on your role, pay is reasonable. Location near the waterfront close to the heart of the city.

    Inconvénients

    When the the CEO of the company walks the floors to take an inventory of who leaves before 5pm, you know you're in for a toxic work culture. Culture is defined from the top and you'll quickly see how that toxicity has trickled down through the ranks. If you take a job here, always be prepared to make an exit because there is no telling when you'll have enough and quit or if you'll get fired because you wouldn't sacrifice...

    Avantages

    Great/hilarious coworkers, sometimes there's free food, the work itself isn't hard but it's tedious, public transit costs are covered 100%, associate managers and senior reps in CS are super supportive and work tirelessly to help us, sometime get to just chit-chat with great customers that play the games.

    Inconvénients

    Absolutely no work/life balance unless you can afford to live in Seattle (lol), no competitive pay/stagnant wages, upper management only cares about making us a "billion dollar company," no job security since they're planning on outsourcing our department to India within the next year or so despite the fact that there's other options to "better reach our players faster", upper management will boast about how great your...

    Conseils à la direction

    Actually give a damn about your employees and don't outsource outside of the country. Employee morale is the lowest I've ever seen it in the 3+ years I've worked here. So many people are leaving who could be awesome assets to the company in other teams, but I'm sure they want us to leave anyway because it will look better than firing us all. It was a better place to work when Paul Thelen was still here.

    Avantages

    Solid work/life balance, good insurance, fun work events, cool building, fun people

    Inconvénients

    Management is more concerned about squeezing profit out of the employees, pay is below market rate and non-competitive, the customer support department is in the starting stages of outsourcing

    Conseils à la direction

    Pay the reps a fair wage to avoid burnout and frustration, hire more reps to cover the gaps instead of holding morale events hostage

    Avantages

    Great coworkers, good benefits

    Inconvénients

    Since being acquired by Aristocrat, the company has become a sterile, unforgiving work environment. Job security is out the window, and advancement from within is a thing of the past. Management will tell you they pay competitively, but $16/hr is not enough to survive in Seattle, and is less than most comparable positions at other companies are starting at. Don’t waste your time on this dead end job.

    Conseils à la direction

    If you want to talk about being a billion dollar company, pay your employees enough to live. It’s that simple.

    Some nice people work there.

    Inconvénients

    A terrible group of upper management who don't care about people. Turnover has been nonstop because people keep leaving or getting fired without warning or cause. They are ageist and sexist. They set employees up to fail on a regular basis. They are experts in gaslighting employees into believing they lack skills. Goals and direction are chaotic, unclear, and inconsistent. Goalposts are moved so consistently it's impossible...
