Employee testimonials on Glassdoor and Indeed are notably positive. Many employees commented that the pay is exceptional, the company allows flexible schedules (especially during the pandemic), and that the benefits are great. Reviews especially mentioned the people-centric atmosphere of the company, claiming the work environment to be incredible. Multiple reviews said that working on a game team is the most desirable position in the company, and that working for their publishing department would not be as enjoyable. As far as cons, many reviews (even many positive ones) expressed disapproval for middle and upper management. Overall, the company has been portrayed to have an amazing work environment with good pay and benefits, but its quick growth has led to some flaws in its management structure.
