    Pros

    - Lots of creative expression from every individual in the company. Any employee can submit game ideas that have a chance of launching into a full-production game. We have weekly brainstorms that is open to anyone in the company and an annual game jam where everyone participates.
    - We work in small teams where everyone plays a large role in the game design and development process.
    - Employs some of the friendliest, best, and most talented game developers in NYC.
    - Really good work-life balance with minimal crunch.
    - Great family culture supported by office management. We go on annual trips to Six Flags and beach parties, celebrate birthdays, play board games after work, etc.

    Cons

    - Coworkers can be fired without any notice to other team members.
    - Many of the programmers and artists are in the Ukraine office. With a language barrier and a 6-hour time difference, it slows down production significantly.
    - Many projects have very tight schedules.

    Pros

    It is a great place for beginners, but also gives you opportunities to grow. Top-managers are very experienced, and can teach you a lot. Competitive pay, reasonable working hours.

    Cons

    Working with IT-developers can be challenging on the personal level. Also if you are not interested in game industry, this is not a place for you.
