      great salary, benefits. limited creative culture

      Pros

      great salary, benefits. teams have passion. Diverse workplace is a plus. A good place to get a start in the industry. Working on one of the existing live games is recommended, as those teams seem to have a more stable process.

      Cons

      lots of challenges at the time. project starts and cancellation. Seems to have got better since then. They've moved past the Mattrick years trying to apply console strategy to mobile, and then the Pincus return which created a lot of churn as he went hot and cold chasing different ideas without a coherent strategy.
