Fun place to work with a very collaborative environment

High 5 Games is fun place to work, with its openly collaborative environment. It is similar to the classic Bauhaus art school in that all of the disciplines and work groups necessary to make a sophisticated, rich media internet application are housed under one roof. You can meet everyone involved in making it.
If you enjoy collaborating, it is a good place to work. If you don't, it isn't.
Benefits are top notch and generous. You get to work on progressive, cutting edge projects.
Management is unsophisticated and not strong. Advancement opportunities are between rare and none.
Great place to work, best art department I've ever worked with!

Best job I've ever had. I was an illustrator here for almost 3 years and it was a great experience. A typical project could vary from realistic illustration work to cartoon styles to photo retouching and live action film work. The art department was great, team members were also awesome and supportive. The projects change very often which is nice because you get to work on something new every month, keeps things fresh. The only problem is upper management and their lack of vision. This place has some amazing talent in its creative department!

If you like living in the now with a sense of work-life balance and friendly coworkers, this place is for you. This place is also for you if you aren't afraid of losing your job at random because management spent their entire budget on worthless projects, which is commonplace.
With that said, the company is undoubtedly going under and it's a shame hard working people are let go at random. If not for the amazing co-workers, I would not recommend working here until management (including the CEO) get replaced.
Friendliest people in any office environment
The company is doomed and there's no job security.
