Bonuses if you've been there long enough
Reviews are annual, and you might not get much feedback in between

Some good ideas get abandoned for no reason it seems
Artists can hit a career wall with no more room to advance

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WildWorks (Salt Lake City, UT).
I met with the head of the department first for a traditional interview and resume review. Following the department head's approval I was invited to meet with the whole department (as a group) to make sure I would work well with team. This provided the team with an opportunity to ask their own questions and gave me a chance to ask their individual opinions about the company.
