    Pros

    Great benefits, outstanding coworkers, fun environment. They truly care about and for their employees. LGBTQ+ friendly. Everyone is encouraged to contribute and to be their authentic selves.

    Cons

    Honestly none. This is the best company I’ve ever worked for.

    Work is very boring and not challenging for me. I wanted to take on more but they were so understaffed I never got the chance. When theybare well staffed the job is great and lost of room to grow

    Meh

    Pros

    Some of the main reasons that kept me working at Kabam for as long as I did, were truly the amazing people that I met there. Other than that, there is not a lot going for this company.

    Cons

    The pay had to be probably one of the worst things about this place. Letting your employees live paycheck to paycheck in one of the most expensive cities in the country is just straight up disappointing. For a company who preaches culture and the importance of it’s people, the pay absolutely does not reflect that. Additionally, there were so many changes when it came to directions of different products and the communication about that was VERY MUCH lacking which caused a lot of frustration.

    Cognitive Dissonance with the company towards the employees

    Pros

    You will likely really like the people that you work with. They are great and time spent together is fun.

    Cons

    The company is never consistent in their messaging. They will say that we are getting a profit sharing bonus like years prior, say the same in a follow-up email, but then when you get you letter there isn’t a bonus. They do not care about their employees. My immediate leadership does, fortunately. At the highest levels, they have no interest in competitive pay for those in support. The attrition rate in the last year has mostly been because of the low pay. Not a lot of career growth. Players complain about support but it’s not surprising when the agents are living paycheck to paycheck.

    Pros

    Great compensation, exposure to big licensed properties, lots of cool people below the upper management.

    Cons

    Unfortunate and outdated technology at the core of modern games, poor transparency with regards to the health of projects/company, cliques at the top of the org largely seem separate from the rest of the company. Big projects are underperforming.
