Pros

Awesome benefits, a collaborative work atmosphere, and ridiculously cool IPs (Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons). You get to do creative work in an environment that values it highly. And from a game designer point of view it has the single highest concentration of them I've seen at any company, creating a work environment filled with fascinating discussions, deep knowledgebases to draw upon and the best tangential blathering you can imagine.

Cons

The company is part of Hasbro and has some of the inertia and bureaucracy of a large company.

Advice to Management

Less focus on managerial buzzwords, more on getting actual product out the door. Yes process can help, but in general nimbleness wins.
