    Pros

    The people are great. The environment is a lot of fun. There are lots of events to promote company culture (like game night on Wednesday afternoons, summer hours, and other cross learning meetings).

    Cons

    The companies future was not 100% clear while I was there. They went through large lay offs and because we were private, we were never clear how things were doing. I really hope things look brighter in their future.


  2. "Great job...if you have connections. Otherwise, pretty bleak."

    I worked at Spin Master full-time

    Pros

    Creative work environment
    Free toys

    Cons

    If your manager is a power tripping bully, you're screwed. Also HR will just pay lip service for whatever management is there. And there is a LOT of nepotism and favouritism, so good luck landing a promotion from within. They require that your manager fills a form and you need permission for everything. It actually doesn't matter how great of an employee you are, if you don't have connections, you won't get anywhere, even though they keep bragging about promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and respect ALL departments.
