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

    Pros

    Work is consistent, people are fun to work around, overtime is around for the taking, free stuff if you like the product they produce, and medical benefits.

    Cons

    They pay, according to the bureau of labor, 50% below the industry average in every single position in the company. Do not work in the warehouse expecting to make any kind of livable wage.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
  2. They have no care for their hourly employees.

    Pros

    So long as you work and do not speak up, you will likely not be messed with.
    If you like to be left alone, unless you do something to anger management, they will pretty much never talk with you.

    Cons

    No future in the company.
    No employee development or training options.
    Complete disregard for hourly employees.
    Industry bare minimum standards of safety and health.
    Wage discussion is suppressed and dismissed.
    Employee organization is suppressed and dismissed.
    Management at all levels is completely despondent, dismissive, and uninformed in any aspect of their departments.
    Nepotism and cronyism run every aspect of company "progression".
    Hourly employees are referred to by management as "Not Really People".
    Over the time I worked here, the morale of Privateer Press has fallen apart.
    The only support you get is from your friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything does not have to be a zero sum result.
    If you want people to stay and invest themselves in your company, then the company will have to be ready to invest in the people as well.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  3. A lot of fun, but you won't get rich.
