Pros

flexible hours, lunch provided daily, overall it's a fun place to work... complete with nerf guns and game testing frequently.

Cons

Unfortunately, with the growth of the company, communication and organization has suffered. Some people are demoted as opposed to promoted even after years of employment. Yearly reviews and raises based on performance are not given.

Advice to Management

Provide more feedback to employees about their performance and compensate them for their years of hard work for you with a raise depending on their performance. Overall, there needs to be better work flow management and communication.

    Relies too heavily on just one artist
    Constant empty promises of raise or full-time

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, focus a programs with your volunteers so they grow instead of having to use an empty promise to keep them there.

    I have been working at Artix Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    I've never worked with a more talented bunch of folks in gaming, ever. And this is after working at a AAA on the West Coast for some time. Excellent programmers, artists and animators, and the CEO/founder and his top producers are superb leaders, giving us what we need to do the best we can. Good hours, lunches paid for, snacks, time to relax or game during the day if you need it.

    Cons

    The past few years were rough as the company tried to establish its footing in mobile while continuing live ops on a lot of browser games, but over this past year everything is turning around. Sometimes the management can be a little too transparent, so morale can shift up and down considerably based on financials. But the honesty is good.

    Advice to Management

    The new AQ3D game is fantastic and players are loving it (not just because of how great I make things move on their mobile devices!!). Keep developing it and look forward to the full launch later this year after open beta.
