Pros

PopCap used to be a place with a great environment for making games. The really understood what it takes to make creative games.

Cons

PopCap needs to find it's stride again and return to it's roots in making games. They have the know how, they just need to get back in the zone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to remember what PopCap was like before the bean counters took control.

    Once amazing and incredible.

    Pros

    Ellen & culture management, facilities crew, most people, the non-health related benefits, the games themselves. Overall, this was an amazing place to be for a very long time.

    Cons

    EA takeover, red tape, lack of direction, accountability, the building location, the building itself, the reorganizing that just will not stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. They're pretty bright folks. Don't squash the creativity.
