    Pros

    WildWorks offers great flexibility to their employees, ensuring a healthy work/life balance not seen at many other gaming studios in SLC. Working on children's games is really fun and the environment is really creative. The management team is transparent with growth goals and are available for the staff to talk to. Fun perks for staff including

    Cons

    Management isn't clear on career growth and goals for individuals, despite setting goals for the whole company each quarter. Communication is open in the office, but it appears as though all direction comes from the studio founder rather than leveraging the expertise of the staff they've hired.

    Pros

    Work-life balance was great. PTO and other benefits were pretty solid.

    Cons

    This studio is the definition of insular and traditional, with strong enforcement of favoritism that sours everything else. Diversity is a bad word here. The same handful of long-time employees make all the decisions, and there is little room for innovation, constructive criticism, or anything they don't agree with. Office management/HR department frequently failed to provide the most basic studio support, including several errors that really should have been reported to the state labor board. Upper management is a self-aggrandizing boy's club, especially with tech and production. The siloing of departments never seems to be addressed, even after years of being acknowledged, and project management and pipelines suffer immensely for it.

    Pros

    The management understands the importance of every worker at the studio. They work hard to make everyone happy. The facility is great.

    Cons

    At times, we were not working on the most exciting projects available in the video game industry. ultimately though, it is a great studio to work for.
