    A failed experiment of a game studio

    Pros

    - Coffee Machine - Great Staff full of talent at the time

    Cons

    - Direction to staff on work and even the games being worked on was minimal at best, invisible at worst. - Management positions were renderred null, leaving a surplus of staff awaiting direction from the Board. - The Board was the only point of contact for any and all creative and business decisions, with 50+ employees awaiting instruction and feedback at all times. - Work was discarded at the discretion of the Board and sometimes openly insulted by the CEO. - Employees were actively encouraged to seek lower quality ways of finishing their work, and attempts to innovate were seen as a problem. - Some advice given to the Board by experienced staff members was not only ignored but sometimes ridiculed. - Industry best practices were discouraged, and attempts to use tools to organize workflow as per standards were discarded. - Company policies were nebulous and unfinished, and sometimes even changed. - Long periods of inactivity and no contact from the Board were common. Any work being done during these times was almost guaranteed to be unused.

    Pros

    Great coffee Machine. Good places to eat.

    CEO outright rejecting work and ridiculing it. Fired almost the entire staff. No work most of the time. Always awaiting demands from the Board.
