Great People, Endless Politics

Operations Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

Pros"Perks" like free food, gym, massages
Lots of smart, interesting, motivated ground-level staff

ConsAmbiguous expectations for many positions, especially less common ones
Work-life balance awful if you have outside commitments
Inexperienced management
Politics, politics, politics... it's a game company, so prepare to play lots of games w/your job

Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking that "treating employees well" means throwing perks & dubious stock/bonus promises at them. Instead, staff your Operations and Partner teams properly and pay them with the same respect you give engineers. Be transparent with expectations, provide feedback, and for crying out loud so something about the drinking and sexual behavior at work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
