Working in the Game Industry

If you have an interest in working in the game industry, here is a stream of comments from Glass Door regarding working for Fantasy Flight Games, part of what is arguably the largest game publisher in the industry after WOTC, Asmodee NA (Incidentally, online rumor has it that Asmodee just laid off a load of people so may not want to hit them up for a job right now).

Based on the comments
Pros for working in the game industry:
1. you get to work in the game industry
2. you get to work with some of the smartest and most enthusiastic people you will ever meet
3. You will get lot of free or deeply discounted games
4. High acceptance of LGBTQ individuals

1.Pay is not great. Expect to get paid less than you would at a comparable job in another industry.
2. Lack of advancement potential. Since most game companies are small, there is not much room for advancement.
3. Favoritism by upper managment
4. Long hours
5. Uncompensated work, such as at game conventions.
