Pros

Talented and passionate individuals, great benefits, all types of people are accepted here.

Cons

Exec management seems to react and make decisions out of excitement or passion, not always what's most rational and truly best for business and health of the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wonder how differently the company could operate if we weren't in blind silos. We pit studios against one another instead of building relationships between them. We could consider streamlining some of our core tech functions instead of establishing multiple fascets that try to out-do each other.
