I have been working at Nook Media full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Creative freedom and almost no corporate politics as well as a non-competitive friendly environment with a positive and proactive approach make it a really nice place to work at

Cons

Management manages a tad too much up, and tends to forget to manage down. Communication could be better.

Advice to Management

Communicate more with your teams, and put them above all else. Spending most of your time making decisions with higher-ups in a vacuum does not help anyone succeed in the long-run

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

    Pros

    The people at Nook are smart and hard-working, and a lot of fun to work with.

    Cons

    There seems to be no clear business strategy or vision from the management, or at least it is not clearly communicated to the teams, and many employees end up working very hard but not very smart which can lead to frustration. Lots of politics, design by committee, and not enough decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    Share your vision, strategy and product roadmap with your employees to get them committed and excited about delivering great products.
