Pros

Nice location. The admins are fantastic.

Cons

Executive leadership and board could not possibly be more asleep at the wheel. Taking a share price from $33 to .45 is amazing. What is most impressive as to how much they go from one head of studios to another despite the lack of portfolio or games studio experience. Snake oil salesman and snake oil buyers, the board and exec teams deserve each other.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign before you run out of studios to crash.
