    Kirkland office is unstable

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Kirkland, WA

    ProsThe work is fun and challenging. The people are great.

    ConsThe studio goes through annual layoffs. Sometimes it is more often than that. They layoff people whenever a title is ready to launch. The pay is lower than other nearby studios.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlan ahead so you have something to do with all these people when a project ends. There is no need to go through massive hires and layoffs every year when a little planning will save you all that time, money, and reputation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Full of potential, but lacking in adequate resources (in terms of process, people, and direction)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Tremendous IP and the potential for leveraging that IP
    - A number of very passionate a dedicated people to work with
    - Essentially still a "startup" culture with a hefty bankroll
    - "Warner Bros." experience can look pretty good on a CV

    Cons- Lack of unifying direction/vision (especially obvious given the geographic separation of the "head office" from everyone else)
    - Too little staff to do all the work that needs to be done, and a seeming willingness by the executive team to let this situation continue.
    - "Bottom-line" decision making often at odds with creative/creation process
    - Current trend of workforce reductions at various development locations

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnify the entire division, staff critical positions with enough people to get the job done without individuals having to "kill themselves," and setup a culture of "success" versus one that provides a minefield of opportunities for failure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
