great experience that prepares you for your next position

Director (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

ProsMost creative people I have ever worked with
- Good Food
- Great perks
- Fun place to work

Cons- Inconsistency in level-up/promotions. I have seen people that merit their award or level up, but it is very much about who you know and a lot of brown nosing.
- The test team never gets the merit they deserve, they lost their leadership and now are lead by someone that never plays a game and doesn't listen to his team, and doesn't understand gaming
- Too many producers that think they rule the world
- They keep making the same game over and over and launch with the same issues
- Great food...expect to gain weight when you work there
- HR - no consistency in hiring, salaries, promos and every raise or hire has to be approved at least 5 times. Lose good candidates because the approval is sitting on the HR heads desk
- No 401K match
- Too many execs or upper management that don't understand what is happening in the trenches

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes and look at your workforce, and give merit where merit is due.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
