Pros

Nice people. Fun projects. People are passionate about what they do. Good benefits. Owners are very approachable and easy to talk to.

Cons

- Overall quality of work is very poor. At least from a developers standpoint. 10k lines of code for a player. Come on hasn't anyone there heard of design patterns, object oriented development. Just abysmal design. Its a wonder they can final games.
- Design decisions all over the map. Once month the game is X then next month game is Y. Then you wonder why things take so long.
- Work life balance is not very good.
- Terrible pay. They look for junior staff and underpay them. They keep pay low even after you excel and can demonstrate senior capabilities.

Advice to Management

Pay people what they are worth.

    Pros

    Great games
    Great, experienced talent in studio
    Making changes to improve transparency
    Everyone is trying to make the studio a better place
    Huge recent improvements in the engine and tools that are making a difference
    Great benefits
    Competitive salaries

    Cons

    Could be more nimble.
    Approval process is slow.
    Some people are good at pointing out problems, not as good with coming up with solutions. Creates negativity around some pretty simple things that can be solved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the studio and the way we work. You are starting to change things for the good but we are far from where we need to be. I really want to see this studio be the best in the city. There is no reason why we can't be!


  2. Was fun, but run maybe not so much any more.

    Pros

    was a small game studio with big plans and all the good times that go along with that scenario.

    Cons

    big plans kinda happened and then everything tanked in my opinion.
    not the studio it once was as most of the founders have skipped out
