Reviewer Rodeo - Bad Behavior at Team Bondi | ZTGD

ZTGD Writes: As you may have heard, Rockstar has parted ways with Team Bondi after credible reports of years of excessive “crunch time” working conditions (12 hour or longer days, 7 days each week), abusive leadership, and over 100 individuals uncredited. With the dirty details of working conditions at Team Bondi now revealed, would you purchase another Team Bondi game with the same leadership in place? (L.A. Noire, PS3, Team Bondi, Xbox 360)

I agree with Drew's paragraph. If those workers did not like the condition they could have quit working on the project. Yes, it does seem that they are entiteled to back pay, and it does seem that Team Bondi was able to take advantage of the bad economy and make their employees work in harsh conditions.

But at the end of the day, no one was forcing the employees of Team Bondi to actually work those crazy shifts. I think most of the employees did the right thing which was complete the project, and then worry about the overtime later. Now they will have an amazing game on their resume with the potential to make a claim against the company.

Besides from the comments in the article, slamming Rockstar when they are considering making you into a subsidiary is probably a good way to get fired. I doubt the CEO Brendan will be there much longer.
