    I have been working at Rockstar Games

    Pros

    +It looks good but you realize it is fake. +Freestyle work culture +Hike & huge Bonus +World class Facilities +No layoffs even when you don't perform. + No termination even you abuse/ use bad language.

    Cons

    1.Technical stuff is filtered. No knowledge transfer intentionally to keep you dumb enough to show their dominance. 2. Too much hypocrisy. No respect. 3. Divide and rule, biased environment 4. Bad leads and middle management 5. Don't trust the leads 6. Worst team management and politics 7. Mostly scrap work, too much copy, paste and data entry role. 8. Opportunities and growth for favourites 9. Employees are just... resources and aren't treated as human 10. Work environment is a place of chaos and false urgency. 11. Leaves are not easy. 12. Every 6 months 1 or 2 people leave the company due to this bad culture. ( Bad leads) 13. 6 people left the team from last 2 years due to bad leadership. 14. On site Manager is aware of these issues and couldn't take any action due to dependency on the Off site leads. 15. Promotions are based on you being a fav to leads 16. Mistakes and escalations are to the employee. Appreciation, appraisal to the leads. ( Bad leads). **Stay safe , be aware of NOC. Working there would be injurious to your health and happiness**
