Pleasant

Programmer (Current Employee)

ProsIt's a fun environment - nice break room, more coffee than you can handle, and as SOE is all about video games, things are generally more relaxed unless there's a crunch fast approaching. The people I work with are great and I am enjoying what I'm doing for the time being.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
