Insomniac Games

#25 - Best Small Workplaces

INDUSTRY: Media - Television/Film/Video
LOCATION: California

Contrary to what their name implies, this video game developer gives their "Insomniacs" ample time for rest, awarding them 55 days of PTO  and "mini-breaks" during high production periods for massage therapy, a quick happy hour or a silly celebration. Company-wide royalty bonuses and the inclusion of every Insomniac in game credits encourages equity and collaboration, alongside “movie days” (tickets and popcorn paid for) and elaborate wrap parties. Celebration extends beyond the studio through the “Better Half” ambassadors who organize a variety of events for Insomniac’s significant others.

Employees at Insomniac love celebrating Halloween.
