    I have been working at Kabam full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We have an amazing new CEO, Tim Fields, who is incredibly intelligent and personable. Under his leadership, our department got floor-wide raises and an amazing bonus plan set up. Our work-life balance is incredible and coworkers are all unique and talented individuals. We're able to be creative and really help improve the company.

    Personal pluses: We get free lunch every day of the week with occasional catered breakfast and a really sweet snack bar. We also have a ton of board games, card games, and console games that we like to play throughout the day just for fun.

    Cons

    --Some folks are constantly swamped while others are usually cruising by.
    --In order to thrive at Kabam you really have to be a self-starter. If you like to wait to be told what to do, but want to do more, this isn't the company for you. If you're not afraid to put yourself out there and come up with ideas that you'll actually be able to see come to fruition--this is the place for you.
    --Things are always changing, which is fine, but fast-pace environments aren't for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Be less afraid of stepping on employees' toes and really give them constructive feedback to help them grow.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Kabam (Austin, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    If you don't clique from the get go there's no point. Went in for an interview and HR lady didn't mention you will be assigned with 5 other candidates and talked to other current employees to gauge your fit with the company. They push their "Success" with one lucky title.

    Postmortem: Dawn of Steel one year on

    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.
