Pros

A challenging unique environment, developing cutting edge games using Unreal technology. A group of tight-knit artists and developers working towards their dreams.

Cons

Brutal crunch periods, long work hours. Little work-life balance emphasis. Little opportunity for internal advancement, and lack of motivating influences.

Advice to Management

Management needs to focus on recruiting and retaining top talent. Turnover is dangerous to any business, but especially indie studios.
