    Pros

    Individual studios (ArenaNet, RIP Paragon, Carbine) offer a pleasant enough experience, and to the extent that you can be shielded from the executive shenanigans in Seattle or Seoul you may think everything is just fine.

    Cons

    Lack of direction. Inability to think differently and try new things. Poor use of shared services bogging down the individual development studios. Misleading bonus structure and shady payment practices resulting in a severe lack of trust and commitment at the highest levels. Terrible communication from HQ to NA studios, with an unfathomable reluctance to clearly voice disappointment effectively often resulting in massive amounts of wasted work and confusion among all parties. Almost blatant disregard for the long-term well-being of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate your moral compass, recognize that your people (regardless of which country they work in) are your greatest asset, and steer your company in a drastically different direction.
