I worked at Trendy Entertainment

Pros

A challenging unique environment, developing cutting edge games using Unreal technology. A group of tight-knit artists and developers working towards their dreams.

Cons

Brutal crunch periods, long work hours. Little work-life balance emphasis. Little opportunity for internal advancement, and lack of motivating influences.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to focus on recruiting and retaining top talent. Turnover is dangerous to any business, but especially indie studios.

    Trendy has a lot of good potential and talented people but is still in the baby stages of development as a studio.

    Pros

    -Some cool and high scoring (in reviews) projects.
    -The chance to work on many different kinds of games.
    -Chance to learn new things.
    -Good workmates.
    -Good opportunity to try your hand at different parts of development (if you are ambitious enough)
    -Cost of living in Gainesville is low and people are fairly nice.
    -Health insurance.

    Cons

    -Long work hours plus weekends in many cases.
    -Current studio space is cramped and inefficient.
    -Very few company perks.
    -Projects are not given enough planning time.
    -Pipeline is pretty sloppy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the pipeline, learn from employee feedback, the studio is too small for communication to be this sloppy. More perks asap :)
