"The team I was a part of is amazing and talented. The company provided good workspace, and equipment needs to complete my task. Though compensation was a little low and the ability to move up is very competitive. The teams and co-workers make the experience worthwhile. Also seeing the occasional celebrity is a nice perk."

Game Designer

"Great place to work, very structured, fantastic and smart people. Office vibe was very corporate, but each game was run as their own team, like their own min start up team. Good food and snacks, lots of selections for drinks. Never got to use the gym, but it was there. Lots of parking. Team members were very supportive, every discipline seemed to be interested in helping other departments on the team. Plenty of interaction inter-discipline between games. Overall pretty fun, normal office environment for Silicon Valley. Bonuses weren't great. Reviews were once a year and, personally, I didn't feel the rewards received reflected the work I did or the review I was given. I got very positive feedback, but nothing in regards of raise or bonus, did not feel like there was any room for upward movement."

Scrum Manager

"These are some of the finest people I've ever worked with. I took three separate groups totaling 35 Systems Engineers and Database Administrators that had been thrown together in a recent reorganization and taught them the value and usefulness of Agile in an Infrastructure world. Despite early resistance and utter confusion with new process AND new tools they eventually overcame their natural skepticism and embraced the process in it's entirety. By far and away the finest team I have ever worked with."
