I worked at Konami

Pros

It's a big international company, made very good game title. The relationship between employer is very good.

Cons

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 ManagementAdvice

They should follow the trend of game industry.

    I worked at Konami (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and creative
    DDR Machine and recently released titles to play in the lobby
    Work with people and groups across the US and overseas
    Great office location

    Cons

    Orders from the HQ in Japan come down and cannot be argued with, regardless of how much sense they make
    Upper management and execs in the US are often given little reign to react to their market
    Relies heavily on contractor labor with no benefits even for long term positions, but still ostracizes them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know your hands are largely tied. Maybe Japan will stop trying to suffocate you.
