    Pros

    The studio has many opportunities for growth. Great benefits, and phenomenal people to work with. It’s a great game studio.

    Cons

    There is sometimes crunch periods where things must absolutely get done. This is not really a bad thing. The pressure isn’t extreme.

            Advice to Management

            We accomplished so much, but were always held back by people who were only half-engaged. Cut the dead weight!
