Pros

it is rare that you get so many top smart folks together that get along and make great teams
fun positive happy place with fantastic benefits
really a nice balanced workplace for minorities and women

Cons

there isn't a con to share at this point, maybe if you don't have experience with small high growth profitable companies in the City -- that might put an incoming employee in a position where they have a bit to learn -- there is nothing PlayFirst specific to list in this column

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep it going, your efforts to date are appreciated by the staff, Marco is a knock your socks off CEO!! a top notch human being, excellent manager with CFO chops at the core of his skill set

    Pros

    The company has some really smart people. Some of the recent hires bring a lot of industry experience. The tech we work on is cutting edge. We've really built up a lot of experience in the mobile sector and are ahead of the current pack of mobile developers in a lot of ways.

    Cons

    As with others in the industry the going can get tough at times. Some projects are successful, others are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the advice of those in the game pods. Combined they have a huge amount of industry experience. Good management is a combination of listening to others along with decisive decision making.

    Change happens on a whim, depending on how management feels that day.

    I worked at Playfirst full-time

    Pros

    The people that handle the day to day projects are really smart and friendly. There are some extremely talented engineers, artists, designers, product managers, and producers; they just need to be allowed to do their job.

    Cons

    Upper management makes incredibly rash decisions on a whim. It leads to people being fearful for their jobs if they say something that may be out of line that day, depending on what mood management is in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should trust their employees instead of getting offended when they ask for clarification on decisions. Staff know when you are trying to cover up for low morale.
