A big company with small company thinking

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

ProsSmart, respectful coworkers
Lots of non-monetary benefits
Flexible schedules
Gorgeous campus

ConsNot sure the management is taking the company in the right direction
Lots of unnecessary and unproductive bureaucracy
Not a lot of confidence in decision making on an institutional level
Not a lot of professional development support or growth opportunity - you have to forge your own path without mentorship

Advice to Senior ManagementChoose a path and go down that path with confidence!
Empower managers to make QUICK decisions
Develop new IP and believe in it, even if it isn't successful immediately - look at Seinfeld, X Files, The Office...
Most importantly - people want to play games that are FUN and interesting. They don't always have to look that good or have the most awesome tech if people can't put them down or become completely engrossed in the story.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
