    I have been working at WildWorks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work schedules are pretty flexible, as long as you're getting stuff done.
    Great products - get to work on a game (Animal Jam) known to millions of kids (which my kids love to brag to their friends about)
    Bonuses if you've been there long enough
    Cool people

    Cons

    Reviews are annual, and you might not get much feedback in between
    They keep it really dark in there!
    Some good ideas get abandoned for no reason it seems
    Artists can hit a career wall with no more room to advance

    Advice to Management

    Hire more senior/lead game designers and give them authority, let them lead projects
    Create more art lead roles for specific areas

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WildWorks (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    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.
