    A great startup environment, but needs to start creating more formal structure and adjust to rapid growth.

    I have been working at Humble Bundle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very fun work environment (monthly board game nights, casual game sessions, etc). Office manager has really made a lot of improvements to company culture in the last few months. HR shows a great amount of care for the well-being of employees. Flexible scheduling (has been great when handling doctors appointments, etc.). Great benefits and coverage. A stocked kitchen with plenty of healthy options, catered lunches three times a week, and catered dinner every night is great.

    Cons

    Training for some positions weren't as informative as they could have been (lack of documentation, no formal training processes). Opportunities for advancement can be very difficult and not very clear. Work environment may often feel a bit too casual and doesn't emphasize much of a professional environment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve training and on-boarding processes by department and position (general on-boarding has improved a whole lot since starting at HB). As the company grows, try to have more events or team-building opportunities so that different departments don't feel so disconnected from each other.

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

    Pros

    Great office location and setup for open office environment. Provided lunch and diner meals drinks and snacks. Dress code matches the gaming community's laid back manor.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between teams. No dev/stage/test environments for web site changes, everything is done on live site. Extremely cliquey which can cause unwanted drama between employees, management is part of this. Lack of leadership from management on operations can cause issues to arise during launches and title on-boarding.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and positive re-enforcement when projects/launches are completed with out issues. Setup valid review structure and growth potential for employees.

    I worked at Humble Bundle part-time

    Pros

    Everyone is very friendly and accessible. There is a fully stocked kitchen & kegerator as well as free catered dinner if you stay later. Lots of incentives and perks for doing good work. Hours are flexible, can work from home if necessary. Overall a fantastic and fun way to get a foot into the gaming industry.

    Cons

    Communication could be a little hard at times as internal structure isn't too clear. Hiring process isn't the most professional.
