    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's been a fantastic year for me at LBC! Our awesome CEO is always looking forward to the crew's happiness and that our teams always have what's needed to work properly and in great conditions. A studio and team that goes above and beyond.

    Cons

    No cons at all. So far my experience has been one of the best in my career.

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Caveat: I still work here. But this is an honest review. A lot of companies make claims about flat structure, work/life balance, looking after employees, but LBC actually walks the walk.

    Cons

    I'll find it hard to deal with second best ever again if i have to, honestly.

    Studio size is growing beyond it's current physical space.

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pro's to this studio is that they value every one of there employees. It is a top priority to hear everyone's opinions and do the very best to accompany them. The owners make it a point to make sure their employees are comfortable and happy. ( They also stock a full kitchen with food every two weeks!)

    Cons

    Jam Cafes long line up every day! They usually block the entry to the stairwell.

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Understanding and supportive management structure. LBC is unlike any studio I've ever worked at before. We help each other, support each other and approach issues as a team. When I started at LBC we needed to do a large restructure of internal systems, since that time it's been a pleasure working with all of my co-workers and even though we've faced a lot of challenges it feels more like family than work.

    Cons

    You get more than enough rope to hang yourself with so you better be willing to work hard and deal with any shortcomings you may have. Not a company for those that need others to do their work for them.

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment where we are encouraged to foster our inner entrepreneurial spirit. This is a place where you dictate your own success and take ownership of what you do. Everyone is extremely supportive, collaborative, and most of all, awesome! Your potential is limitless here and the opportunity for career and personal growth is boundless. New, fresh ideas are encouraged always welcomed.

    Cons

    You must be a self starter and be able to answer the bell when duty calls. Although the hours may be flexible, you will need to make yourself available in times of an emergency.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Flexible hours - Open communication and high levels of transparency reinforced in our studio values - Competitive compensation with a rare list of perks including vacation, sick, and personal days - Scrappy start-up feel but strong business focus and care - Lots of room to self-improve, and management is very much interested in building a culture around personal and professional growth - Mistakes and processes are regularly reviewed, and those discussions are encouraged - Not a place where you can coast - Strong desire from management to recognize the value of their people

    Cons

    - We learn by failing, and we've had our share of failures to date - Weed-focused games not for everyone (but anyone working in games should have learned this lesson immediately) - Remote nature of much of our work can be a double-edged sword--if you aren't a strong communicator, you may hurt the team and your prospects here, and this opens the door to mistakes and miscommunications

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In my department at the studio, I'm lucky to have flexible hours, which enables me to continue to pursue my other passions, while completing all my tasks at a high level. Management is transparent and intrinsically motivated to support growth of their employees on both studio-related paths, and personal ventures. I feel valued and respected in my role.

    Cons

    Due to the remote nature of the work, not every person hired will turn out to be a good fit (i.e. as self-driven as other members of the team).

    I have been working at LBC Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly, I've never been treated more like a functioning member of a team. I'm respected, my opinions are heard, and I've never been "ordered" around. I feel like I'm part of something bigger, and that I matter. People are held to a high standard of integrity, and expected to own the issues that cross their desks, which fosters a really excellent environment of tackling issues as a team, rather than making it someone else's problem.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report.
