    Pros

    It is still a good company if you care about making a big-scale PC game.
    If you are new to game industry or software engineering, spending a year or two might make sense as this place is serving many successful games.
    If you are comfortable with not changing much, this place can be good.

    Cons

    If you are eager to do something, avoid this place. Too much legacy.
    Most of smart and passionate people already left.

    Advice to Management

    Good compensation for passionate people.
    Accept more changes.

    Pros

    New office building. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Has some incompetent directors who don't know much about the game. Team members don't get a chance to evaluate their seniors, which makes it difficult for them to voice their opinions to executives.

    Advice to Management

    Need better evaluation system for team members to assess their leaders.

    Pros

    The company is getting lots of money. Financially stable.
