    Pros

    - Good benefit and compensations - Very accessible and transparent leadership team - Job stability (no massive layoff) - Best HR team I had in my entire career (10+ years) - Player first mentality

    Cons

    - Compensations are good but maybe not the best in the market if you are west coast based

    Fully Remote with good benefits and openness to explore and move to other roles within

    Pros

    - Good Benefits - Fully Remote - Many people jump to different teams and management always seems open to giving someone an opportunity to explore a different side of the business - Feedback is always encouraged and listened to on a variety of topics - Hot topic questions are answered in team and company-wide meetings. I.e., good transparency (for the most part)

    Cons

    - Being fully remote, you might not get to know coworkers as well (though there are opportunities virtually and otherwise to meet casually) - Not sure about market/industry rates for salary - Job titles are sometimes ambiguous making it hard to determine the above

    The Best Company I've worked for

    Pros

    I've been in the industry for many years and by far, Hi-Rez is the best company I've worked for. They believe in their people - they offer training courses and continuing education. They encourage work/ life balance. You must take time off to recharge. No matter what your role is, you have a voice. They put trust in their people (I haven't come across micro-management here). Colleagues some of the most talented, brilliant, hard-working people I've encountered. Diversity/ Inclusion is taken seriously. Core values are followed.

    Cons

    During my time, so far, there have been 0 cons.
