    I have been working at Spooky Cool Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paycheck clears. Management is mostly absent. 9-5 put in your time kind of place.
    Free food and drinks.

    Cons

    Terrible environment. Games fail and company is always running out of money and finding a new partner. Head of game design has no idea what he is doing. Keeps failing and there is always a reason. People are always kept in fear for their job. If you are not related to miserable owner, your career is going nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. You can only lie cheat and steal for so long. No vision. No leadership.
    No morality. Quit and get real management. You are headed for certain failure.
