      Everything was great until COVID

      Pros

      - Great coworkers - Low stress - Very little overtime

      Cons

      After COVID hit in March, we were very quickly shuffled to working remotely. This transition went more or less smoothly. Mid-May (and after a month long furlough in April), we were all told we were required to be physically back in the office by the start of June. All protests about safety, effectiveness in working remote, or anything else were shut down completely. We were told that upper management did not trust people to work from home. Upon returning to the office, compliance with wearing masks and social distancing was extremely low and left entirely up to the individual. At the end of June, two employees tested positive for COVID and Human Resources did not inform us until weeks later, and seemingly only because word started to spread about the positive cases. Konami's response to the pandemic has been, much like the US response itself, a case of putting profits before people. I understand when you work at a large corporation like this, you are just a column in a spreadsheet at some level, but the flagrant disregard for employee well-being and the refusal to acknowledge and adapt to the extraordinary circumstances of a global pandemic soured my opinion of this company faster than I ever could have anticipated. Steer clear of working for Konami until well after COVID is gone or until you hear that they have made a complete shift in their policies.

      Pros

      View of Airport & Strip, Free coffee & water

      Cons

      Micro managed & top heavy organization. No room for internal growth. You will need to look elsewhere for advancement opportunities. HR is a joke as they will fire you for anything you do. Everyone walks on egg shells at the office. Its very quiet and no life in the building. No covered parking so your cars 130 degrees in the summer afternoons. Only upper management has underground parking. Disgruntled employees flood toilettes in this place and management literally took away the paper towels to fry your hands punishing all. This place is a joke. No raises + more responsibilities when new upper management shuffles positions and try to consolidate teams. List keeps going...

      Pros

      Glossy Building and Delayed Bonuses

      Cons

      They recently laid off their most senior HR, employees who were working for them since decade, many Mid-level engineers and also freshers who joined like six months back. Now, Just think about what they can do to you. The upper management never believe in their employees and always hesitant to let them work from home and the same behavior during pandemic too. They believe in hiring better senior management people and throwing real working employees out. "sooner or later you will regret your decision to join this company". This company is for oldies who don’t have any energy left in them to pursue their career and just remember if any time they want to reduce their workforce they will go age-wise with the preference to keep Oldie. Their product sucks and full of bugs !!! Unless you don’t have a job I would suggest not to join them!! "A suggestion to all the smart people working there, I understand you might be feeling useless lack of real skills but just look outside and start thinking to leave this company else you will be stuck there forever like other oldies you see around your cubical".

      Pros

      Most people that work at Konami are nice. Good work/ life balance most of the time. Benefits still good but they get a little worse every year. Stable job, I didn't see any lay off during my time.

      Cons

      Upper management think they are in Japan. We are paying you so put your head down and work attitude. If you want to innovate and feel appreciated this might no be the place for you. Salaries are a bit below market even with the bonus.
