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.
