    I have been working at Toys for Bob full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work and wonderful people to work with. Studio culture and management style promote creative freedom and a sense of personal ownership over one's work. Relatively flat management structure allows all employees to influence and contribute to the game design.

    Cons

    With so many creative people in the mix, there can be a lot of course changes during the creative design process. Not really a con, more of a result of the democratic nature of how the studio works.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Toys for Bob (Novato, CA).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and one on-site interview. I spoke with the HR Manager and the Head of Talent Acquisition on the phone. During the on-site I met with several members from the business, including senior leadership. The process was fairly quick and the only delays were to be expected with the end of the year holidays and office closures.
