    I worked at Privateer Press full-time

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, unique industry, casual workplace, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Ownership has no business sense and is totally out of touch with reality. Bad decisions are made constantly to either keep the lights on month to month or provide creative ego strokes to the owner. Employees are overworked, underpaid, underappreciated, passionless, and constantly trying to mitigate the impact of terrible decisions passed down from the owners. Very few employees actually play the games the company makes and even fewer actually enjoy it when they do. Unbelievably low morale, as evidenced by the high turnover over the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their job, stop micromanaging, hire a consultant to make the changes needed to be profitable instead of trying to figure it out as you go.
