    Excellent career opportunities, great culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsA very entrepreneurial culture where you can make a lot of your own opportunities and really stretch yourself, and the company is really driving new creative programs. Everyone who works here is extremely passionate about games and it's a very creative group of people. Everyone is encouraged to be themselves and speak up if they have ideas or opinions. Nice perks as well.

    ConsTeams can be very focused in on their own work and not as willing to collaborate across teams to make things happen.

    Fun, challenging work.

    Senior Software Engineer I (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsGreat benefits and compensation. Projects always present a challenge. By the nature of the gaming industry, you may get the opportunity to work on several different technologies. It's a great learning experience.

    ConsIt's all about the bottom line. It's clear throughout the company that if your studio isn't grossing huge revenues, you will undoubtedly be closed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook farther ahead than 6 months.
