    I have been working at Big Fish Games full-time (More than 3 years)


    Good location, nice view. Benefits are pretty good: free bus pass, good health/vision/dental coverage, lots of subsidies for other services. Most of the people I work with are enjoyable to work with, intelligent, and open to ideas. I enjoy the team I'm on and like my manager. Great yearly parties (want more!) Generally I have the opportunity to participate in learning events on and off site, but I usually have to take the initiative in finding these and asking my manager. Good work/life balance, at least on my team. It varies from dept to dept. I think the executive team does make good decisions in general. I think the company will continue to be successful.


    Compensation is low for game industry. They claim it is the median rate, but they could attract a lot more talent by being more competitive. I feel a large disconnect between myself and the executives. Some are more approachable than others, but most seem to think they are above you and don't try to engage with you. A lot of the leadership (at all levels) is promoted from within. This can be a good thing, but I've had some issues with past managers because they simply aren't good leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive pay. Invest in more learning opportunities to grow careers and produce better leaders.
