    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kixeye (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People mention the food and the view a lot in these reviews, what stood out for me was the concentration of talent . Lots of people you could see starting companies of their own in the near future. They have multiple games in development, all of which I can see doing well. Founders still around and working on games. Made a lot of friends.

    Cons

    A very cut-throat culture and quite heavy micro-management from above. Open office design is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    I have vested shares, don't f**k it up!
