    I worked at KingsIsle Entertainment for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is great. The company rarely has crunch time and is very family friendly. The work itself is very fun and it's awesome to see kids that love it.

    Cons

    Management is very vague about business handling, i.e. how the company is doing, how much is being made. I feel they do this to keep every cent of profit to the company itself rather than rewarding hard working employees for their work. Working contract is like chasing a carrot at the end of a rope, with promises of opportunity, but rather than hire on someone they already invested and knows the tools, they'd rather let them go and hire someone else on contract to save a buck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making false promises and outlooks to contractors. They work just as hard if not harder than most people in the company. Promote based on talent level, not seniority. It's frustrating trying to talk to a principle artist who knows less about art than those who are greatly talented. Be transparent with your business dealings and finances. Companies that do this have very high morale and employee excitement goes up a notch.
