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

Pros

Every company has good and bad. I believe that to be happy here, you need to be committed to being excellent. I personally like working with people who are like this, and I thrive in this atmosphere. The people are cool, but driven. The free gourmet lunch twice a week, stocked kitchen are cool perks. Plus a take-what-you-need vacation policy is nice.

Cons

I don't love the office layout, as it can be hard to concentrate. But I just find an open office.

Advice to Management

Keep asking us how to improve and then follow through, like you've been doing. It great to know you are listening.

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

    Pros

    Kixeye has more talented, mature, and experienced staff than your average free-to-play studio. Too bad they've largely given up.

    Cons

    The CEO indoctrinates all new employees with twenty-minute lecture describing how much he like to fire people. Pretty much tells the tale.

    I worked at Kixeye full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great facilities, talented team members in general, and great opportunities to work on large projects. Great pay & benefits. If there are enough layers between you and the top execs, it can be a rewarding & high energy experience.

    Cons

    Executive management is rule-by-fear. Their inability to execute successfully in Mobile games has left them vulnerable and scared, and this leads to thrashing & chaos. This is more of a con the higher up in the organization you are working.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Harbin and get back to the values of the founders, Dave & Paul.
