Pros

Turbine is a great company with people who care, sometimes to a fault about what they create. There are big opertunities for people who are motivated to do work outside of their comfort zone and move up. Many employees stay for more that 5 or 10 years and love what they do. MMO's are a nitch market, but the company is growing beyond this. There should be a bright future.

Cons

Most employees are highly intelligent and often have difficulty seeing beyond their own point of view. It is a game company, so the personal hygiene habits of most are questionable at best. With big egos at play and the continual political games to traverse, it is sometimes disheartening to stay motivated. There is a past pattern of bad employees "failing upward". The compensation is below the industry standard for what you would make on the west coast.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stress open communication. Reach out to lower level employees. Don't promote people who fail.

    I worked at Turbine full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    During my time at Turbine, I had the opportunity to work with some amazing artists and game developers. The atmosphere is friendly, and I always felt a sense of team unity. I feel that they strive to put out the best possible game they can, and with new ownership (WB) and a larger team, I feel that is even more possible now than it was before.

    Cons

    No real cons to list. I moved on to try my hand in different artistic outlets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your artists, they're the ones that keep your company viable.
