Has anyone looked into GALA, or have any thoughts on investing in it? I started looking into it and it’s a gaming token for GALA Games which was launched by some real heavy hitters in the online gaming space such as Zynga / FarmVille. It seems to be pitched as if you were able to accumulate wealth in games games such as Runescape that you can carry from game to game

Great ExperienceApr 8, 2016 - Intern in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great people really willing to help you learn, but also allow you to be a professional member of a team. Many opportunities for workshops and classes. Free food (and it's good- I can't believe people complain about this!) Dogs allowed in the office. Grounds themselves are very interesting and fun. Compensation is great, especially when many big companies don't even pay their interns.
There is some frustration with the choices of the higher ups, great projects getting canned and new ideas tending to get pushed back in favor of safe ones.Continue reading

You are well cared of, but might need to really stand out to ger promoted or advanceMar 27, 2015 - QA Engineer II in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- You got free lunch and dinner ( and food is okay too) - Perks and swags are abundannt, and if oyu like showing off your company then by all means wear it - Facility is very nice. you have a Gamer feel type of environment. There are also a lot of free services available (Last time i worked) - Benefits are okay
- Gets very busy and will have no time to enjoy the free amenities the company provides - It's really who you know and not what you know ( I got screwed by my pay and bonuses/raises. never got one on my whole 3 years working there even when I worked my butt off) - With the company being that big, its hard to really stand out and be recognized. You really need to get along with everyone. If you have one person that doesnt like you, that's one negative points for you.Again, It's all who you know and what you know.Continue reading

Great parties, butAug 3, 2020 - Principal Software Engineer in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
free food and lots of parties
the parties are really to numb how uninteresting the work is. And the cliques in your team show at those parties. So kinda like high school. Among the game companies I've worked at, my coworkers and the environment at a whole is more close to high school. That's the impression I got to this date if I were to summarize.

Low bureaucracy, tons of perks, and great peopleJul 19, 2016 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Incredibly low bureaucracy (to order a company paid-for phone and unlimited data service, I sent an email asking for the newest Galaxy model and in a week it showed up) - On premises IT was always available and super helpful - We could easily ask for and get any software we needed as developers - Management up to and including the CEO was very approachable and down to earth - Engineering centric culture - All the food you could imagine and more for free - Hammocks for naps - Quarterly team outing budgets of $100/person plus lots of team prizes (we went on a trip to Hawaii) - Smart and very friendly teammates - Very flexible vacation and WFH policies - merit based culture where if you got your work done, you were given freedom how to do it.
At the time, it felt like the company as a whole wasn't succeeding but with the recent success of CSR2 and the potential shift in direction from quantity to quality, this may be different nowContinue reading

Hard but fulfilling workFeb 6, 2012 - in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Career growth- you will learn a lot as you are pushed outside of your comfort zone. You will work with some of the brightest people in the game and internet industries. You will be surrounded by entrepreneurs. Great perks and the hours are no longer unreasonable. 8-10 hours is average on most teams in most roles except the <10% who are crunching for a game release for a month or so. The food is fantastic and the new office is great.
It's hard work so it's not for everyone. Some teams have better managers than others. Company strategy could be communicated better. You will stick out and be pushed out if you are a low performer.Continue reading
