    Pros

    Great company perks, events, and a persistent strive to make the office more comfortable and fun for its employees make this a fun place to come to every day. A lot of their hires come from within, meaning loyalty is usually rewarded with promotions and training to get to where you want to be. Also, company morale is at an all-time high, with a really positive, chill feel to the place that makes it an enjoyable place to be.

    Cons

    As a publisher, communication is key, and communication between in-house people and developers/partners can sometimes get clunky. Establishing a tight and persistent connection to external parties is key.

    Advice to Management

    Doing even more to foster communication and a sense of community can help to further tighten relations, both in-house and externally.
