I worked at Kabam full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I would potentially work here again just for the perks. Work-life balance was pretty decent, loose atmosphere, vacation was untracked, and there were catered meals daily. Plenty of snacks and drinks for the taking. Great benefits package, plenty of holidays off.

Cons

If you want to work in a creative environment where you have a say and desire to grow your career, seek elsewhere. The company cares about one thing, and that's its bottom line. It is a business first; caring about the customer and the line employee are much farther down the priority list. There is also a lot of favoritism. Despite a lot of lip service about personal growth and career goals, if you are not part of the right clique, you will be passed over. Finally, constant reorganizations show that the management really has no idea what it's trying to do.

If you're just looking for a paycheck with good benefits, then this place would probably work for you.

Advice to Management

While the bottom line is important, you should pay more attention to customer needs, recognizing talented employees, and pushing for creativity and innovation, not just what will make you a quick dollar. Employee loyalty will follow and you will retain top talent.

    I have been working at Kabam full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Transparency from the top down (I have full trust in and confidence of our Upper Management team)
    Excellent career development (they give you the resources to expand your reach within the organization)
    Laid back (but passionate) work place
    We're spoiled (free lunches, dinners, snacks, gaming, trips etc etc etc)

    Cons

    Cohesiveness between offices (it's sometimes difficult to connect with employees in other locations. Would be great to foster collaboration between national and international offices)

    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.
