You're a games company. Keep your focus on metrics, but hire some people who have a passion for games, not just money.

    Pros

    The perks!

    - Free breakfast, lunch and dinner
    - Dogs allowed
    - Game room, movie theater, stocked bar, quarterly parties

    Management needs a facelift. They throw people into C level management because of their list of companies they've worked at not because of their capabilities.
