    Pros

    Casual work environment, decent perks/company outings/free games, etc.
    Decent benefits but not great compared to others in the industry.
    Management is approachable and good at what they do.
    CEO is responsive to everyone.

    Cons

    Feels very corporate compared to the other game studios I've worked with.
    Commute sucks. No easy way to get there by public transportation.

    Advice to Management

    Need a way to boost morale. Make us feel excited about our products and proud to be working here. More flexible work/life balance wouldn't hurt either.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, but geared towards the software developers and artists. Place had changed a lot since they were acquired by Warner Bros.

    Cons

    Most of the upper management (now gone) had delusions of grandeur when it came to game launches and sizing of the market.

    Advice to Management

    The New management team is much better so I will leave it to them. Good Luck in all future endeavors. .
