I have been working at Trendy Entertainment
Pros – -Some cool and high scoring (in reviews) projects.
-The chance to work on many different kinds of games.
-Chance to learn new things.
-Good opportunity to try your hand at different parts of development (if you are ambitious enough)
-Cost of living in Gainesville is low and people are fairly nice.
Cons – -Long work hours plus weekends in many cases.
-Current studio space is cramped and inefficient.
-Very few company perks.
-Projects are not given enough planning time.
-Pipeline is pretty sloppy.
Advice to Senior Management – Fix the pipeline, learn from employee feedback, the studio is too small for communication to be this sloppy. More perks asap :)

I have been working at Trendy Entertainment full-time for more than a year
Pros – -good group of Employees
-talented developers, artists and teams
Cons – -Horrible/ Inexperienced management
-Abusive and controlling boss
-Low wages / No perks
-Crunch Time / Overtime hours are constant and mandatory despite contracts
-Experience and knowledge is not respected or allowed
-Lead and senior positions are a farce. Only person making decisions is boss, despite lack of knowledge
-Questionable business practices
-Constant threats / inappropriate behavior from management
Advice to Senior Management – Treat your employees with respect and allow leads, senior positions and directors to do their jobs. There are many very innovative individuals working for this company who suffer daily under poor working conditions, arbitrary deadlines and slimy management. I do not understand how the artist teams deal with the uninformed decisions made by upper management. It's bad enough in our room and yet, I know they have it even worse off than we do. I have never worked for someone who is so afraid of his own employees before that he treats them like bad kids and while I may not be one of the vocal ones in the office I am secretly ashamed of working for this company by the way it treats the people it employs.
