I worked at Kabam as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Tight teams that work together in close proximity. Free lunch and classes. Great camaraderie between artists.Excellent use of metrics to analyze player use patterns to adjust game play for monetization.

Cons

Business goals are so aggressive that hiring is often on hold. They rely on their numbers so much that relevant parts of the game sometimes aren't perceived as important to the bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't overdue the formulas that seem to be working.

    I have been working at Kabam full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits, vacation plan (unlimited - but honor system of course), lunch + dinner, the company trips are awesome, and if you're in a good team, you'll have a great experience.

    Cons

    Politics, if you're in the higher echelons, prepare to know how to work the system. Not as transparent as they say they are. Hope you get a good team leader - doesn't happen all that often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be actually transparent if that's a value you say we have.
    C level folks - realize and address all the politics going on!

    I worked at Kabam full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free food, flexible hours, good benefits.

    Cons

    Creatively bankrupt. Leadership and management encourage the cloning of existing games including Zynga. Looking at where Zynga is going, Kabam is not far behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what it takes to be a content creator and not just an opportunistic Zynga shadow.
