    Pros

    The salary and benefits (health and retirement) were competitive.
    There are some very talented team members sprinkled across the departments.
    The project provided for fun subject matter.

    Cons

    Poor management. Horrible handling of internal conflict.

    No reward or appreciation shown to workers:
    1) No compensation time following a 5 year development cycle.
    2) Deserving workers often went years without a pay raise.
    3) Royalties did not trickle down the chain of command.

    Tool sets were archaic and generally useless, and cross department support non-existent. Any suggestions to improve these things were met with censorship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect, and enable your workers. You continue to push and ride the team into the dirt with the rapid fire update schedule. You aren't growing the user base as planned, but are instead burning out the team.

    I have been working at Trion Worlds full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some very talented and pleasant people working there.
    You get free drinks in the lunch room
    Salary was generous and the benefits were pretty good.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't know what they're doing.
    Constantly changing goals and priorities, with lots of turnover in middle and upper management.
    Cramped working conditions with many people doubled up in tiny offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what kind of company you want to be and where the heart is.
