    I worked at East Side Games full-time

    Pros

    -Inclusive progressive team and environment

    -Great people on game teams

    -Decent transparency

    Cons

    -Favouritism to teams performing well, and the opposite

    -Lack of structure, processes, methodology

    - Founders don’t understand some of their departments

    Advice to Management

    - Founders still treating a mid-sized company with people trying to achieve their own creative goals as a startup where they can come in last second and change things to their preference without impacting the processes the game team set into place. Do less, listen more.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at East Side Games (Vancouver, BC (Canada)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was called in for an initial interview with a producer and a senior programmer, who asked some fairly basic questions about experience, coding style, optimization, etc.

    Afterwards I was called in to do a three hour tech test, which involved modifying a very simple game. I had to discover and fix two bugs, and then expand on the game as I saw fit. I didn't end up finishing my planned changes, but they seemed to like the level of creativity I showed.
