    Pros

    I really appreciated the company culture. The folks here are smart, as well as considerate. The company stresses success but prioritize the employee's well being.

    From a technology environment, the culture pushes you to innovate and expand your expertise. You are given the necessary tools to succeed, and management is aware that technology drives the products.

    I have only been here about 8 months, but I have been in the technology sector for decades. I can say is one of the better jobs out there.

    Cons

    you have to accept that this company makes gambling-based products.

    Advice to Management

    expand the product line to skilled-based games.

    On-boarding could use work by giving teaching new employees even more about the past games, a practice project to better and more quickly learn the studio's production style and process, and a way to clearly introduce all the terms and mechanics in casino games.
