I have been working at Kixeye full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Smart people
Good games
Great office
Perks: free food, gym, "unlimited" vacation

This is only my second job since graduating from college, but I certainly like it a lot more than my last. I'd say the culture is kind of made for me - pretty much everyone shares my sense of humor, which is weird. The games that they were already making brought me here, but the game I'm working on is making me stay. I can see myself here for a really long time.

Cons

Long hours
Can be aggressive at times
A lot of new faces

I've heard a few co-workers talk about a "culture of fear". I'm slightly on the fence about it because I think there should be a bit of fear around missing dates and schedules. Honestly, I think the people that complain about that want a safer work environment and are better suited to a larger, slower moving company or maybe a position that isn't as critical to product delivery.

Advice to Management

Add more positive reinforcement. Celebrate victories. Put more game genres in the pipeline.

    Pros

    Great products
    Great perks
    Nice office
    Lots of smart people

    Simply put, I think a lot of other gaming companies in North America either don't get it or simply don't have a passion for making good games. Especially in the "social' space.

    Cons

    Hours can be long during crunch times.
    We've grown fast and made a few hiring mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell your soul and don't sacrifice quality for scale

    Pros

    Brilliant people, amazing and fun culture, takes great care of its people, focused leadership.

    Cons

    Could be better at work-life balance, but that's sort of what you sign up for with a startup.

    Advice to Management

    We all heart you.
