Pros

Kixeye has more talented, mature, and experienced staff than your average free-to-play studio. Too bad they've largely given up.

Cons

The CEO indoctrinates all new employees with twenty-minute lecture describing how much he like to fire people. Pretty much tells the tale.

    Pros

    Every company has good and bad. I believe that to be happy here, you need to be committed to being excellent. I personally like working with people who are like this, and I thrive in this atmosphere. The people are cool, but driven. The free gourmet lunch twice a week, stocked kitchen are cool perks. Plus a take-what-you-need vacation policy is nice.

    Cons

    I don't love the office layout, as it can be hard to concentrate. But I just find an open office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep asking us how to improve and then follow through, like you've been doing. It great to know you are listening.

    If you are the right personality type (bulldog), this is a good company to work for.

    Pros

    They hire extremely talented people - these are some of the most experienced teams I've worked with. There is a lot of positive energy on teams. The location is great, as are the benefits.

    Cons

    There are still growing pains around learning to be best-in-market rather than first-to-market. Time will tell if the company can learn and adapt. There are still instances when we are mandated to make shortcuts that hurt the product in the long run, in the name of getting things done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. You continue to hire great employees who know how to get the job done. Let them!
