Pros

It's great to work at a place where people are really invested in gaming and committed to pushing their games to the next level. The Working environment is filled with an abundance of snacks and goodies and the atmosphere is that of a fast paced team oriented work space.

Cons

I am only working as a Contractor and wished their was a position opened in my department to allow in more talent.

Advice to Management

Communicate with the departments and consider hiring in more help to keep things moving faster and efficient.

    Can be fun environment, but get yanked around a lot on top of overly focuses on monetization; many veteran developers.

    Pros

    Benefits are nice, and free for individual. Many veteran developers reside in the studio. CEO is down to earth and not a egomaniac. Beginning to differentiate game development genres. Willing to take more junior staff, which is nice to have a balance of senior and junior.

    Cons

    Everything revolves around how quickly the product can monetize, no acknowledgement of long term investment, only short term. Management often times is making odd decisions, and inconsiderate decisions to employees and users. Pay raises and career opportunities come rarely for some, very often to others (who suck up).

    Advice to Management

    To not down manage their teams so much, team motivation can so wonders. Also, acknowledge that other companies are looking at their employees too; lost a lot of really good developers because of this.

Some people I encountered during my time there were extremely rude, especially those with VP titles. No eye contacts when they try to talk to you. Sending you e-mails to ask you to work on projects even though you don't report directly to them. Not even a "thank you" after you've helped them out with a task. Learn how to respect everyone, not just the CEO. What comes around goes around. Karma is a...
