    I have been working at Playfirst

    Pros

    - I enjoy working with the people in the office
    - the work environment is open and friendly
    - while there are exceptions from time to time, compared to other places, there is a lot of respect shown amongst employees and between employees and management
    - great communication - regular company meetings, emails, etc. so you know what's going on
    - fun company activities
    - Making Games
    - Great views over the bay

    Cons

    - games industry is changing really fast and the company has had to do a lot of shifting over the past couple of years - this can be hard, but also invigorating to know we're not just sticking our heads in the sand
    - did I mention lots of change?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate even more - with all the change, it's helpful to understand "why".

    More creativity - sometimes we get too heads down working on projects, and we need to remember we're making GAMES! Fun! Creativity!

    Former Employee - Data Warehouse Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Playfirst full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was one of the lucky ones who could get a chance to work with the best minds. I learned tremendously on new technology stacks such AWS, big data and so on.

    Marco truly cares about the success of the team.

    Free Breakfast every day
    Free Snacks/Drinks

    Overall, a great journey for me.

    Best technology stack.
    Melissa is a rockstar!!

    Cons

    Usual politics among the team(blame game between teams) that could have been easily avoided.
    Commute (I live in South bay)
    Attrition which is usual in gaming industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please put a tight wrap on unnecessary politics and keep up the good work.
