    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at MZ full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    New CEO has been great, good persona can rally the company well and happy to support her. Feels like anyone could have a chat with her. Unlike any CEO at my many previous companies.

    Cons

    Be ready to work 80+ hours each week. Look at the Careers webpage and AVOID Game Production and Live Ops categories. They are STARVING for headcount, 3 to 4 people quit each month, dropping like flies, you can see why they are starving for new people to join! Demand Bay Area Median salaries when they make you an offer, the amount of work you do will not match what they offer you, don't fall for it, demand 6 figures for entry level roles or look elsewhere.

    I have been working at MZ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food Unlimited vacation Very talkative recruiters

    Cons

    The average is definitely less than a year. Some examples: 1. The president of one big group left within 6 months after he joined. 2. For a single month (January) alone, for a group of around 30 people, 7 or 8 people left. 3. A director in the same group left within 4 months after he joined. 4. The above are voluntary leave, while the company fires 2 or 3 people on average every single week.

    I have been working at MZ full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The games are still doing well Leadership team is very optimistic about the future Salary is below bar but benefits are good

    Cons

    Some teams are really going down: People are leaving at a rate much faster than new comers join and half of the team is gone within 1 year. Chaos and re-orgs are everywhere. Heavy politics are going on all the time, even within a group of 30 people. People are fired from time to time to take the responsibility of the management. Managers do not know what they're doing while products are still in prototype after 1 year. You can join DP or RTM to experience all the above.

    MZ would not be where we are today if it weren’t for the dedication and hard work of all our employees. We are constantly evaluating the market to make sure we are offering competitive comp packages which include very generous benefits and perks. While the bar for performance is high at MZ there are no work expectations placed on our people that Gabe does not hold for himself if not more. We value everyone here at MZ; should you feel otherwise or have concerns you would like to address with us directly you can reach out to our HR team or melissa@mz.com.
