I have been working at Kabam full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Bringing about transformation and disruption to the entertainment industry is rewarding and exciting, while at the same time challenging, and it is not always easy. Pursuit to solve this big, audacious mission makes the challenges worthwhile. We have great teammates to work with, and the necessary resources/benefits to be successful.

Cons

Sometimes we are slow to address issues, and get the right people in the right functions and it is magnified in this quick moving, continuously evolving industry.

    Pros

    Good training ground for the gaming industry, decent benefits, fun company culture, smart people to work with

    Cons

    Kabam has basically made one game since the company was founded and has re-skinned that title dozens of times until now. The company does not seem like it is able to keep up and actually release a hit next-generation mobile game now that its traditional strategy titles are losing steam in the competitive mobile marketplace. The last handful of mobile games that Kabam released have all been duds, and the only opportunity for employees at the company at this point seems to be in the Beijing office. The SF office now serves as a hub for old web game maintenance and a wasteland of poor mobile title execution, and morale suffers as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Too many people are laid off out of the blue for positions that the company already has open requests on LinkedIn for. You cannot create a culture that emphasizes company loyalty when people you know are getting laid off left and right. Company trips are fun, but the bonus pay structure is consistently disappointing for the staff and ends up being a measly sum considering the company's rapid growth.
