    Pros

    Amazing coworkers. Fantage doesn't hire people that already have experience. They hire young adults straight out of college mostly since they won't have to pay them much. But, because of that you'll meet a bunch of awesome people during your stay there.

    Cons

    Management does what they want, however they want, when they want. They will demand new projects be started and set insane deadlines, regardless of what other projects we are working on already. Multiple times I tried to voice my opinion about the mismanaged schedule and lack of a producer on staff but they do not listen. Your well being and opinions are of no concern to upper management. They do not listen to reason. They believe that if something worked for company X, then we can make a rushed copy of it and it will work for Fantage. Example, working on a Flappy Bird clone weeks after the Flappy Bird fad died.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees that enjoy making and playing games. Afterall, you are a children's game company. Do not make rash decisions just because you think it's a good idea. Deciding that your employees must stay late for the next 2 nights to release a quiz game without any monetization under the sole belief that it is a good idea is crazy.
