    I have been working at Dark Horse Comics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun staff, cool projects and autonomy to self manage

    Cons

    Silos as there are multiple buildings staff work in so hard to get to know some outside of your immediate department or building

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, trust them to do the jobs hired and always respect them and their experience. If you provide clear direction, most will want to support and follow it.

    I have been working at Dark Horse Comics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - High mobility rate, very easy to be recognized for performance
    - Great work life balance; few people work more than 40 or so hours
    - Cool coworkers, liberal and relaxed environment. Definitely no need to put on a 'work face'. Extremely casual dress code.
    - You don't have to explain what you do to people, they know what it is.
    - Opportunities for actual fun business travel
    - Flexible time and schedules
    - Very little micromanagement (in most departments)
    - Good basic benefits: sick, personal and vacation, really good health insurance.

    Cons

    - Pay is on the low end of standard for publishing. Not a HUGE con, you know it's publishing going in, but you won't get rich working here. Pay increases seem to vary wildly across different departments. If you have a good boss who really goes to bat with upper mgmt on your behalf, you can do ok.
    - Not a lot of tangible perks outside of the standard benefits offered. Gym membership is about the only 'additional' benefit offered. The cool factor and the company culture are a big intangible benefit, but if you don't care about those things, you might feel a little cheaped out upon.
