      Pros

      Salary, benefits and bonus fantastic. Inclusive, helpful culture. Extra holiday and time off to help people juggle during the pandemic. They really look after their staff. The best place I have worked (in a 25 year career) by quite some margin.

      Cons

      Literally none I can think of.

      Pros

      It's an experienced games studio run by adults but with new generation talent, best of both worlds. Very player and industry focused. The effort to make other game studios successful and give players better options sometimes hurts our own business, but makes one feel like a part of something bigger. Leadership is honest and hard working, no free riders in management. CEO is a visionary. Strategy is awesome. Budget is huge but not poorly managed. Culture is informal and open minded, yet has traditional business values that do not make it ego- or personality- driven.

      Cons

      Extremely messy. Unless you have bullet proof task and project management skills you will get caught up in chaos and struggle to get things done, but rather put out fires most of the time. Due to explosive growth, there has been an influx of raw talent that is untapped and even misled into feeling resources are unlimited, entitlement is high and results expectations are low. This can be frustrating and can become political to work around.

      Pros

      Epic has a great mission and great products. They are developer focused and are making acquisitions to make the internet safer for kids in the metaverse. The worklife balance is fantastic. I could not be happier.

      No cons in the year that I have been here.
