    I have been working at Trion Worlds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management, from the CEO/COO on down, understands that we are all humans and that we face issues with children, pets, random life events and crisis. Everyone honestly cares about everyone else and supports quality of life. The games are all solid, with a few outstanding titles, so you can be proud of them. Trion is a very collaborative environment and even the lowest-ranking dweeb on a game team can provide input and be taken seriously. The break rooms are well stocked with goodies and the Friday Happy hour is a great way to end the week.

    Cons

    OK, so Trion is not a huge company, and it does not rake in the big bucks . There is more to life than money, as many older people can tell you. It's a very lean company, and people stretched thin/challenged daily but in some ways this may be a "Pro." Somewhat limited in career opportunities due to the small size of the company but again, measure that against quality of life. I do see people growing through departments and across games pretty regularly.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you can continue to keep the company profitable. It's hard to find a game studio that honestly CARES about the employees all the way down the chain.
