Pros

There are a ton of smart people, working with cutting edge technology. There is always something new to learn and can often translate that to your working life right away.

Cons

Things are a little turbulent after the IPO. The change to a public company has worn away some of the startup feel that the company once had.

Advice to Management

Additional communication to the lower levels would go a long way. A lot of things don't seem to filter down so sometimes it feels like nobody is at the helm. The recent CEO change could help with that?

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, excellent culinary department, but most of all great people.

    Cons

    You need to have an intense interest in social games. It's also still mostly driven by metrics and needs more emphasis on good game design.


  2. I learned more than I've ever learned anywhere else.

    Pros

    Work with highly intelligent people on interesting mobile development problems. Also, they have free food and gym membership!

    Cons

    The reputation of their games is pretty bad, so everyone made fun of me for working there. They made fun of me even more for enjoying it. Also, because of this reputation (and the poor market value of the company) moral was super low.

    Advice to Management

    Make some games that aren't just money hungry. Make some games that the employees can be proud of. Don't just fast follow, make real new and innovative games.
