    Pros

    Phoenix Labs is a company comprised of incredibly talented and inspiring industry professionals with a genuine interest in sharing knowledge and continuously bettering practices on both a personal and company-wide level. This place truly feels like a close family of like-minded, down-to-earth human beings with a passion for both playing and developing video games. Everyone here is encouraged to share ideas and constructive feedback, ensuring not only that we’re creating an open, honest, and welcoming environment, but that we’re also developing a product that we’re both proud of and passionate about. The transparency level at Phoenix Labs is by far the best I’ve ever encountered in any working environment—everyone here is encouraged to be open and ask the toughest of questions, without any fear of being reprimanded. The motto of Phoenix Labs has always been that the people here are the ends, and not the means; and if that doesn’t tell you about the values of this company, then I don’t know what will. I am incredibly thankful and fortunate that I have the pleasure of continuously investing in my career here, along with the other wonderful people at Phoenix Labs, and I look forward to the many years of success and celebration ahead.

    Cons

    I see mentions of "crunch" as being a con in relation to company feedback, but in all honesty, the approach that Phoenix Labs takes to meeting tight deadlines and supporting the necessary parties involved in doing so is incredible. Management always stays to support those who are putting in extra time, making sure that they have everything they need in order to be productive, healthy, and happy during those hours. I’ve worked in the post-production film industry for years prior to my career in video games, and “crunch” isn’t even in the same ballpark. I’ve never had to sleep on three aligned chairs under a desk for days at a time at Phoenix Labs, and knowing this company’s management and values, that will never be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Management is always investing in their employees and adapting to constructive feedback as both the company and industry evolve, so my best piece of advice for the moment is to continue the course, as it's obviously working.
