    Pros

    The diversity of the people who work there and the fact that I'm actually working in the video game industry is very cool. Management is very forward thinking and I always feel like the company is moving in a positive direction. They strive to be an Employer of Choice by asking the employees what they are happy and unhappy with and then addressing those things. The environment is casual so jeans are fine to wear every day. We have something called Good Times...money is allocated for each department each quarter to be used to go offsite for a day and do something fun as a team.

    Cons

    Nothing, I love it all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
