    I worked at IGN Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    Great employees, sense of fun and camaraderie, love of games and the industry, E3 access, focus on how to be great and improve.

    Cons

    Pay is less than a lot of Silicon Valley and SF tech roles, so you have to believe in what you're doing, the industry, and the perks. The merger with GameSpy wasn't handled well, but most of those assets have been shed now, although it was a painful period. Because it's a smaller company, it was tough to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management has turned over, but there was a desire from them for all employees to be entrepreneurial yet not enough resources to make bigger bets due to a pressure to remain profitable.


  2. Great place for like-minded gamers
