    Pros

    Great culture, talented people, fairly responsive to industry changes.

    Cons

    Sad to see them close. Possibly over-invested in certain game teams with history of unsuccessful games.

    Advice to Management

    While pivoting and adapting to change was the mantra, perhaps it could have been executed a bit sooner.

    Pros

    Upper management was very open to feedback and kept everyone updated on company shifts and decisions.

    Management had no idea which direction they wanted to take the company. Teams worked hard on products that never saw the light of day due to constantly shifting company strategies.

    Advice to Management

    None since the company has been sold.
