Few would deny that Insomniac Games is a fantastic developer. However, how do they make all those great games? Do they push their employees to no end, keeping them holed up 24/7 working on the latest and greatest titles?

Apparently not, as Insomniac has once again been recognized as one of the “50 Best Small & Medium Sized Companies to Work for in America.” They are the only videogame developers ever to appear on the list, and the only company from the "TV, Film and Video” category.

For 2007, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) has placed Insomniac 8th in the small companies category. Insomniac Games is the only company in the history of the small business category to earn a top ten ranking for three-straight years.

“Last year was among the most challenging in Insomniac’s history as we prepared to release Resistance: Fall of Man worldwide with the launch of PlayStation 3,” said Ted Price, Insomniac Games’ founder and current CEO. “Yet we delivered a top-rated and top-selling game -- on time -- while retaining our top-10 ranking as one of the best small companies to work for in America. Therefore, it’s especially gratifying to demonstrate again that it’s possible in the games industry to achieve excellent results while maintaining a collaborative and stimulating workplace culture.”
