      Pros

      Good salary, great benefits, seem to really care for the employees. Employees are passionate and kind. Output of the work is interesting and fun.

      Cons

      Disorganized and unable to make decisions guided by empirical analysis at the top. This trickles down through all verticals. Many old white men.

      Pros

      Colleagues are easy to work with. Lots of support from all levels of management. Willing to work with you and help you understand your role better. Plenty of employee benefits, with an emphasis on mental health as well as physical.

      Cons

      Upper management unwilling to explore a 4 day work week despite resounding employee support.

      Pros

      - Amazing environment, super flexible and friendly people. - The company really cares for its employees and it shows through actions. - The benefits and bonuses and some of the best out there. - Tim Sweeney has a pretty compelling view on tech and the future ahead.

      Cons

      It can get confusing and messy pretty quickly since every team in the company does whatever they feel is best. There is no set structure or process, which can foster creativity but can also wear down people from doing rework due to miss interpretation or miss communication.

      A once great company withering away rapidly to something incredibly disappointing

      Pros

      The individuals at an IC level are incredibly talented and passionate. The amount of things you can learn from some of the literal best in the world is immeasurable and if you're someone who loves to learn and push what's possible - you'll be surrounded by like minded folks

      Cons

      Our CEO and COO have shifted aggressively toward valuing the money in their individual pockets over the quality of life of their entire employee base. They'll happily remove a company benefit that is a 30% increase to quality of life if it means 5% more money in their pocket. Unfortunately, both individuals who are making waterfall decisions for the company are also widely unavailable or will not respond to email trying to have conversations around how compromises can be met. They genuinely just don't care about anyone but themselves anymore and it's heartbreaking having been here for 10 years to watch that happen.

      Cons

      Sometimes daunting to be among such great talent, perpetual challenge to stay in the game! Competition is fierce in the entertainment field... but expect to do some of your best work and be well compensated.
