    I have been working at Trendy Entertainment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -good group of Employees
    -talented developers, artists and teams
    -Interesting people

    Cons

    -Horrible/ Inexperienced management
    -Abusive and controlling boss
    -Low wages / No perks
    -Crunch Time / Overtime hours are constant and mandatory despite contracts
    -Experience and knowledge is not respected or allowed
    -Lead and senior positions are a farce. Only person making decisions is boss, despite lack of knowledge
    -Questionable business practices
    -Constant threats / inappropriate behavior from management

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and allow leads, senior positions and directors to do their jobs. There are many very innovative individuals working for this company who suffer daily under poor working conditions, arbitrary deadlines and slimy management. I do not understand how the artist teams deal with the uninformed decisions made by upper management. It's bad enough in our room and yet, I know they have it even worse off than we do. I have never worked for someone who is so afraid of his own employees before that he treats them like bad kids and while I may not be one of the vocal ones in the office I am secretly ashamed of working for this company by the way it treats the people it employs.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
