Pros

good tech and mid ware development back at the Headquarters in England. Seems like the studio over there is put together very well. Very success oriented. I was able from home.

Cons

did contract work for the San Francisco branch. management was pretty neglectful. I was able to work from home but this had an adverse effect when it came time to communicate. Delays on feedback. poor feedback and communication. VERY slow to pay, taking over a month to finally deliver their half of the bargain. long periods of downtime within a contract leading to depreciation in value of the agreed on rates. Unprofessional and too much of an inconvenience to work for.

Advice to Management

Take your jobs seriously. take a page out of the UK branch.

    Pros

    *great people; the hiring process is VERY tough- very high standards in the talent they bring on *use of proprietary technology to use in mobile games *innovation is encouraged

    Cons

    *disorganized *no sense of company culture in the SF studio *seem to have a lack of directive in the company's overall mission when it comes to their mobile games in preproduction *breakdown in communication between Oxford headquarters and SF studio *very small (game) studio here stateside; projects are not given the manpower or resources they need, and the hiring process/ HR is very understaffed as they are split between UK and US needs. *minimal benefits (studio is so small, health and dental/vision options are very limited)

    Advice to Management

    Wish upper management had given the SF studio the resources and manpower it deserved and needed to properly make the games we had been assigned to make. Wish they had 1. had better organization and a solid plan moving forward with their games, and 2. had truly given the SF studio a fighting chance to succeed.


  2. Great company, with exciting times ahead!

    Pros

    Good work-life balance compared to previous jobs, working at the forefront of mobile gaming and pushing the limits. Great managment and the chance to work with some of the best industry talent.

    Cons

    The company has grown rapidly in recent times which has caused some teething problems, but management listen and these problems are being addressed.
