Lower Politics then industry average

Dynamic workplace
Great equipment (computers, monitors, office space, chairs, efficient IT)

Cons

Lately, higher employee turn over leads to lower morale
Fairly Fast paced
"Unlimited Vacation time" is false advertising (it's more like 2-3 weeks, which is the industry average)
Not all employees get good work to life balance
starting to show small signs of office space culture ( using things like Rypple, etc)
Company made a few errors in strategy: flaws in business model led to lowered performance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what your doing. But make sure your employees don't get bogged down with things like Rypple and too many meetings.

    I worked at Kabam

    Pros

    Kabam offers free lunch and good benefits. There are a lot of friendly people that work there. Overall seems like a good company.

    Cons

    It doesn't seem like you can grow there at least not in the department I worked in. The people who worked in my department didn't seem to be very qualified and were very unprofessional most times. Management was not very flexible with days off even though the company promotes unlimited vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should really know who you hire as managers. Pay attention to team morale. Have your managers honor company policy. Have a clear privacy and compliance policy for employees.

    I have been working at Kabam

    Pros

    A great place to work. The people are very smart, dedicated, and very talented. It's a pretty amazing team that I work with. Everyone works hard and also plays hard. The management team treats everyone with respect, and they all sit out in the open. It's still difficult to talk to some of them, but at least you don't have to go to the corner office and wrestle with the assistants to get in front of them.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast and adding a lot of new teams and people in different functions. Sometimes it can be difficult to find the person you need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a bit more clarification on how different teams/studios work together to achieve our goals.
