Fun place to work, lots of creative people.

Flash Developer (Former Employee) Burlingame, CA

Pros- People are friendly, they really seem to enjoy their work and put effort in it.
- It feels like a big family
- Interesting activities. This makes it easier for you to get along with other employees.
- Shuttle for easy commute from SF

Cons- Sometimes, I just can't stand Facebook games. I know that's hot these days, and working on games is one of the most fun job ever, but it's a little bothering and hard to think of social games as fun.
- You might have to lower your standards when you think about what's a good game
- When I first joined, I expressed my interest in doing more than just my engineering job, like evolve my position into game design, art, or management. This was perceive as a negative rather than a positive.
- I have to say, the free lunch perk, it's not that great.

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't know what i would change. It's hard to find anything bad to say about this company, when you see that everyone is so great and friendly. Perhaps I can be a bit worried sometimes that too many good things might make people less productive

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    not a very professional work place, poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at CrowdStar full-time


    Pros: Some perks like shuttles, holiday events, free lunch... Cons: Very poor upper management. The company is completely profit driven, no job security, and no passion about making games. Games are not fun, they are… Advice to Senior Management: Focus more on making the games fun, less about making money. Don't just… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
