    I worked at Rovio Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    - Great benefits. - Wonderful, creative, and polite coworkers. - Healthy work/life balance and very laid back with scheduling as long as you get your hours in. - Fun job working in a creative environment. - Low-pressure art reviews with your supervisor, unlike other studios where you pitch to a bunch of talking suits. - Small studio where you will meet and befriend everyone in the office.

    Cons

    - Company has an itchy trigger finger when it comes to layoffs. - Their only production is the Angry Birds Movie so there is no upward mobility or long-term prospects within the company. - Non-union studio.

  7. "The Good and the Bad"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Senior Key Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Rovio Entertainment full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has great people with a lot of talent. It feels like a startup in terms of processes and tools so it's a good way to learn and get into the nitty gritty of things. You also get some Angry Bird swag which is always a plus. From my understanding, the company has been trying to move a lot of the processes to the US which I'm sure are making things easier.

    Cons

    The HQ is located in Finland which would make it sometimes difficult to get things done given the time difference. Also, with everything so manual, it would take longer to get some things done such as reports and answers needed from the team in Finland.

    I worked at Rovio Entertainment

    Pros

    Rovio has a strong brand with Angry Birds and the desire of the company is not only to do games but entertainment

    Cons

    The company is/was paralysed by incompetent middle management who kept hiring very junior and unexperienced employees as they are easy to boss around. This led to inferior products and inability to renovate.
