    Pros

    There are many talented coworkers that you get to work with and learn from. One of the founders, Dave is one of them (great guy, great boss).

    Cons

    They need a serious culture audit from an unbiased outside party. Preferably not one that they're paying. If you've heard rumors, they're probably true. While the founders seem like great guys and are very talented game creators, the rest of the executives are very difficult to work with. There more political games being created than actual games.

    Despite their efforts to lighten up the bro-ish culture, there are a lot of sexist jokes thrown around that tend to be more mean-spirited than part of the 'creativity' agreement. The office is designed to look like the Death Star, and while cool at first, it gets kind of depressing after a while. There is absolutely no transparency with the executives, they spend a lot of time in corner offices. People who don't 'fit in' are marginalized.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try so hard to be 'cool,' focus more on making people feel valued at their company and in their role.
