    Great company, maybe lacking in direction

    Pros

    Some of the best people I've had the pleasure of working with. Everyone was respectful, everyone had a ton of fun, and there were plenty of opportunities to learn at regularly scheduled "learning lunches." Individual employees were given a lot of freedom in both how to accomplish the tasks they were given and the manner in which they worked, as long as those freedoms were not abused.

    Cons

    No clear sense of how to transition out of traditional mobile "decoration" games from management. No game designers were on staff when I was there, and after a series of layoffs employee morale took quite a hit.

    Pros

    There’s catered lunch a few days a week and catered dinner. Work life balance is mostly good other than understandably right before a big game release. Best coworkers you will ever work with!

    Cons

    401k marching is non existent. No bonuses or equity or any other structure exists to make me feel like I have a stake in company success.

    Pros

    - I believe that TinyCo doesn't hire just experienced people, or "good" people, or "bad" people, I think they try to hire the right people to make F2P mobile games, and sometimes experience doesn't mean results, I like that the culture is results driven. - I've learned a ton, maybe I'd even say a crap load. - I feel like I matter here, and that people want me to actually give me opinions and thoughts directly and its not encumbered by red tape or dumb managers - The people are amazing here. Everyone is positive, bright, helpful and there are almost no politics. People have fun and like to spend time with one another and no one is left out. - Great pipeline of game projects that we are very excited about.

    Cons

    - I wish there was more of a management structure and that the company was organized in general, it's a bit of a mess and sometimes the lack of structure creates craziness. I guess its better that there isn't too much management like other companies, but more would help. - Projects are a bit unstructured as well, but I think they are getting much better. I think if we keep having hits and investing in teams and management the company could get there. - Management is a bit slow to act... Decisions feel like they take a lifetime to be made and trickle down even for simple things. - The office is kind of craptastic, but its not bad, just not... pretty.
