-new projects regularly
-able to make a difference/contribute to overall success of company
-growth opportunities limited in some departments

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hothead Games (Vancouver, BC).
Interviewers seemed nice but they were pretty disorganized. They didn’t seem to want to be at the interview. The interview felt rushed and I didn’t get to ask the questions I wanted to ask about the company. They asked me some fairly simple questions. Some of the questions were focused on whether I played and enjoyed video games.
Because the interview process was such a mess, I decided not to work here. It was really that bad.
