Approves of CEO

I worked at Big Fish Games full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good vibe, flexible working hours, no pressure from bosses as long as you do your job, decent money.

Cons

Middle management is a bit random, they try a bit too hard to be a "cool company where everything is good and everyone is happy. just let people do their jobs and they'll be happy.
not many growth opportunities, but that's just due to the company structure.
