Any designers work for video game companies (EA, TTWO, etc.. ), I understand it's a totally different industry, but how did you get there, how's the culture/work?

Are you talking about doing art for games or marketing? I don't work there but my boyfriend was at EA for years as a software engineer. On the game dev side, It's pretty corporate and they pretty much only care about putting widgets in boxes and selling the boxes. The people who do art for games come from more of a fine art background. I've talked to their marketing team / recruiter and it doesn't seem like a great opportunity. Unless you like making shitty Facebook ads.

Dunno where you are, but Ubisoft in Toronto appears to be hiring a ton right now in creative. But I see a lot of 3D model requirements so I get the impression standard design skills may not be enough in that industry. Check out all their LinkedIn posts for a sense.

I lead a very small team. One of my employees was recently upset that a teammate was promoted, despite them being here longer. They are interested to get promoted themselves. This person's review is coming up and I really don't want to promote them. I don't think they are there yet, despite tenure. Someone could argue they are, though, suppose. If I don't promote in this round, they'll likely quit. I'm so torn on this. Would you stick to growth markers or promote for the sake of culture?

So, super weird question: Others often consider me the "smartest person in the room" but I love being challenged and called out when I'm wrong. Is this weird? Is there a term to describe this (other than obnoxious)? Asking here because for some reason in our culture it's super taboo to talk about how smart we are and we're all supposed to pretend we're less intelligent than we are too avoid looking arrogant or making others feel inferior.

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally.
