      Pros

      - Some smart people doing good work. - Good perks and pay. - Current head of HR is super. - Staff are comfortable and churn is low. - Very stable company (for games). - Some interesting problems to solve. - Possible to learn a lot. - Nice office space.

      Kontras

      - There's some Kool Aid to be drunk about how great the company is. This can lead to complacency and arrogance from the management team. - Aversion to QA and project management staff, meaning work can be pretty chaotic. - Crunch is celebrated and teams have burnt-out. - Product strategy is very safe, which means work can be dull. - Small company compared to more corporate studios (EA, Microsoft, Kabam) and slower...

        ATA offers a lot of autonomy over ones work. They focus a lot on building communities within their games and working towards developing best practises on how to do the same for their internal team. ATA cares about its people, and offers many programs to ensure that people are supported.

        You need to feel comfortable with having lots of autonomy and freedom to make decisions about your work. Career paths are not always clear, and therefore you need to take ownership of the direction you want to move towards and make suggestions for how you want to accomplish those goals.

        Rat an das Management

        Keep asking your teams for feedback. Its great when you do and when you put actionable plans in place for change. Keep working on developing your people, and supporting managers on how best to support their teams.

        Pros

        -So many smart people work here. There is a ton of brainpower, and ATA provides a lot of ways to share that wisdom, some structured, some organic. For instance, I learned about second-order logic from an engineer over a game of lunchtime Sudoku! -Literally everyone can make impactful decisions. It doesn't matter what role you fill, if your idea is a good one, you're empowered to put it into action. -ATA has a ton of...

        -ATA is made up of a handful of small teams, all of which function like their own startup. While this design has its benefits, it can also foster a sense of separation. And although there are ample opportunities to socialize outside of your team, these chances aren't always leveraged.

        Rat an das Management

        Keep up the transparency and open lines of communication. The fact that Kenshi is so honest and accessible is awesome and makes everyone on the team feel like they matter.
