    I worked at Sucker Punch Productions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Suckerpunch has been the best studio Ive worked for in my career.
    The staff are welcoming and a pleasure to work with. Upper management has made sure that the people who really know their stuff are in leadership roles. Ideas and brainstorming are encouraged. The quality of art is top notch and I feel privileged to have worked here.

    Cons

    Usually, wherever one works, there are negatives, but in this case I really cant think of any.

    Pros

    SP has a big focus on productivity and pushes itself with respect to quality.

    Everyone can have a positive effect on the quality of the game.

    Cooperation is a big focus, with fairly tactically minimal management intrusion.

    SP has less crunch compared to most of the industry (pretty minimal).

    There are lots people with families at SP and that is reflected in the games we make (have not made an M rated game).

    Cons

    You have to be able to get over your ego to succeed here (pro for me).

    Requires constant effort to learn and improve quality of work (pro for me, but not for everyone).

    SP is not averse to cutting under-performing staff if things can't be improved. This is painful, but seemingly unavoidable in a competitive industry.

    SP has increased in size over the years and communication across the team has sometimes suffered.
