    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Alright work environment and people.

    Cons

    One has to wonder if anyone is even interested in competitive game balance or content with a shred of innovation. Lack of creativity is suffocating.

    Great people, lots of talent, too much meddling from the top

    Solid Employer

    Aug 26, 2015 - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Fair wages if you have experience and knowledge. Fairly accommodating work environment. Management structure is easy to follow - not a lot above us in the pipeline. Tools and equipment are sufficient - we don't need super computers to develop our projects anyway. Fun days are a plus. OT is kept at a minimum. Privately owned by someone who actively plays games and loves to keep on top of the trends.

    Cons

    Biggest gripe - Producers tend to push work they should be doing down the line to the dev team. More on this below. Occasional noise pollution among the larger groups they put in the same space. PTO is lumped into one chunk - being sick for most of your PTO can be a drag when you actually want to use time for something fun later.

    Stable beacon in gaming industry

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great friendly work environment. Fun days, collaborative projects and creativity fostered. Upper management very approachable. Constantly working to improve all current projects and push the bar forward in new directions. Low turnover and virtually no layoffs. A very stable company that is extremely family friendly. Good bonus structure and benefits.

    Cons

    Different experience being contract versus full time. Sometimes it can be confusing to see a direction of a project due to many things not being communicated past upper management.
