    I worked at Turbine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits and Pay Good company to use as a "stepping stone" into the industry Relaxed casual atmosphere (maybe too relaxed)

    Cons

    Work experience (as an artist) does not translate to other jobs in the industry. Their in-house tech is holding them back from producing quality games. Product development is all about quantity and not quality. Poor management of products and resources Poor communication

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Casual work environment, decent perks/company outings/free games, etc. Decent benefits but not great compared to others in the industry. Management is approachable and good at what they do. CEO is responsive to everyone.

    Cons

    Feels very corporate compared to the other game studios I've worked with. Commute sucks. No easy way to get there by public transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Need a way to boost morale. Make us feel excited about our products and proud to be working here. More flexible work/life balance wouldn't hurt either.
