I have been working at MobilityWare as a contractor (Less than a year)
I have worked at four other game companies in the area and this is easily the best!
With over 100 people, there is always someone new to meet.
Individual team size is small so you have more of an influence on the product.
No crunch time, employees have personal lives and maintain relationship with their families.
Nice people, having a good time making games.
Unlimited personal time off, as long as you are reasonable.
An amazing kitchen with a soda fountain, espresso machine, bagels, and chips all free.
They send employees on a company vacation once per year.
Competitive salary and perks.
Games subject matter can be boring, like card games and slot machines.
Still using Microsoft Outlook for email and calendars, and restrict internet access.
An open office floor plan, there is little privacy and colds go around, but the desks are a good size.
Still figuring out the best software development practices, but open to improvements.
Advice to Management
Try and hire more Women so its 50/50.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MobilityWare (Irvine, CA) in December 2013.
It was a while ago so it was very informal. It took a couple of hours, and I met with all the key people at the company at the time. I was originally assessed for a different role, but after I presented a personal project I got poached for a different role. It was overall a nice experience, and I felt very comfortable through out the entire process.
