    I have been working at Playfirst

    Pros

    Number one reason: the people. They are smart, talented, funny, and best of all? Decent human beings.

    Next are the perks - playing games for work, the game room, free food, laptops for every employee, the great view of the bay.

    Cons

    Some departments aren't treated as well as others - some have a great work-life balance, others are overworked though they try to give them lots of food to keep them sane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love the games we make, be sincerely passionate about the industry that we're in.

    It is important to factor in technological challenges in making business decisions and people should be respected for their ideas, not for agreeing with the management.
