    People It's often said in the world of free-to-play development that launching a game is the beginning, not the end. These aren't boxed products released onto shop shelves, never to be worked on again. These are games-as-a-service that require constant operation and updating, often over a period of several years.

    I worked at Kabam full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The studio has many opportunities for growth. Great benefits, and phenomenal people to work with. It’s a great game studio.

    Cons

    There is sometimes crunch periods where things must absolutely get done. This is not really a bad thing. The pressure isn’t extreme.
