    Pros

    - Leadership has really paved the way for innovation on our next wave of titles. We have a lot of leeway to be creative and try things to create the next big thing for mobile.
    - Lunches and snacks are plentiful and the office location in Downtown Seattle is central and near a bunch of great stuff.
    - Leadership in the studio has given the game teams a lot of autonomy to build the games and features that they want.
    - We probably have the best culture and teamwork at the studio that we have had in years.

    Cons

    - Communication with central King Leadership is sometimes slow, which can hamper our ability to get stuff done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep giving teams space to be creative!
    - Keep a consistent Prototype process going so ideas don't go stale

    Pros

    We just moved into a new office
    Benefits are getting better and better
    New investment in SF in development and a Top Secret game team
    Local leader is one of the best ( empowering, transparent, always listens and does whatever he can to bridge needs of office and needs of global)

    Cons

    Benefits are getting better but the new office is in the middle of the finance district so more commuting benefits would be great

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, love the team and the pace...please keep investing in SF we love what we do and feel like we can make an impact globally!
