    Team has very little flexibility on it's own, most decisions must go through Perfect World Entertainment.

    Pros

    The working environment at Cryptic Studios is generally okay. People are friendly, people are dedicated to their work, and all are striving to improve their respective products.

    Cons

    Cryptic Studios needs to be able to stand on it's own two feet more. Perfect World Entertainment may own the company, but it is the studio who get's all the backlash from players who are upset, by the decisions that were ultimately made by Perfect World management.
    Additionally, developers (not just public relations, community management) need to be more open and communicative with the players, both on the current state of the games, as well as plans for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your players more. While there are a small amount of very vocal "haters" on the game forums, most are generally quite caring about the game. They often have very good suggestions on potential improvements to the game. Focus more on what your players want, not just what your bosses at Perfect World Entertainment wants.
