    I worked at Zipper Interactive full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management invested substantially in hiring more staff--projects were not egregiously understaffed. Good in-house QA team. A great incubator for designer, programmer and artist talent.

    Cons

    Way too many producers. And one absolutely evil one bent on world domination using Zipper as ground zero.

    Advice to Management

    Too late now but really, don't hire that guy. He had bad news written all over him. Next time, if there is one, please listen. Not everyone is a "good person" at heart.


  4. "Good while it lasted"

    I worked at Zipper Interactive full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and a really talented team. I really enjoyed the environment, and my team had a lot of autonomy.

    Cons

    It got shut down by it's parent company. Prior to that, the biggest disappointment was with production.

    Advice to Management

    In general, I thought the company was run well. Employees were treated fairly as a result of the shutdown.
