    Pros

    Great group of creative individuals. Fun environment with many great functions to keep the environment rewarding and gratifying. Good time off policies and health benefits. Lots of free food and candy.

    Cons

    Separation of departments, sometimes it's hard to understand what other people in other departments are up to or actually do. It's an office situation so sometimes it can seem a bit monotonous. Lots of free food and candy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to get a better idea of what each department does.

    Pros

    The people are great, the CEO is inspiring in terms of the game changing products and strategy; the products are fabulous. The company is always changing and evolving in every way.

    I love the way that information about the company is freely distributed to everyone. I have NEVER worked anywhere that provides so much information to the employees about the company, future plans, past performance.

    There are a lot of very smart, dedicated people who work here.

    Cons

    In some departments, there is a sense of dead-man's shoes in terms of career progression. There are also some Seattle-centric work flows that defy all logic.

    Pros

    Everyone is passionate about the work they do. It is rewarding to be surrounded by people who care so much. Having been here for as long as I have I expect things to change regulary and would think something was wrong if things got stagnant.

    Cons

    We are the global leader in digital media creation and licensing. Our office could use a makeover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. If there is a place to improve, it is with random acts of recognition.
