Achtbaan, maar hard werken, hard spelen. Roller coaster ride, but work hard, play hard.

Pros

- Snel groeiend en bewegend bedrijf (altijd wat te beleven). - Je kunt echt het verschil maken. Nog klein genoeg om je eigen verantwoordelijkheid te nemen. - Geweldig bedrijf voor ondernemende mensen. - Geweldig product! Online ongedwongen en sociale spelletjes.

- fast growing and moving company (never a dull moment) - you can really make the difference. Still small enough to take own responsibility - great company for entrepreneurial people - great product! - online casual and social games

Cons

- Veel veranderingen (als gevolg van de markt). - Hoewel de gaming-industrie leuk is, is het niet zo romantisch als mensen vaak denken. - Als gevolg van marktbewegingen worden beslissingen soms te snel genomen.

- a lot of changes (als due to the market) - although the gaming industry is fun, it is not as romantic as some people tend to feel about it. - due to time of market sometimes decisions are made to fast

Advice to Management

Ontwikkel de HR-afdeling meer, geef er meer volume aan.

Develop the HR department more - give it more body.

    Pros

    Very laid back, everything is done really slow (this is a pro for foreign people if you want to retire) Great location just outside of Amsterdam Good support for foreigners

    Cons

    Zero games knowledge. People are not passionate about games Reputation of cloning, building uninspired games, based on "proven concepts". End result is always a compromise. Failing is never ok. Taking risks is never ok. Sitting in meetings 8 hours per day is. Extreme politics are a daily chore. 10,000 people companies don't have this much politics.

    Advice to Management

    Don't keep people on your management team just because they're too expensive to fire. A good employee is the one that does his job well, not the one that tells you greatest stories

    Out of touch management. Little morale building. Homogenous and non-existent corporate culture.

    Cons

    -Completely idiotic management / clueless about direction -Most VP's are 'robots' and trying too hard to hold onto their jobs

    Advice to Management

    -They wouldn't listen anyhow, so no point.
