    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij CD PROJEKT RED (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - Fantastic creative designers, artists and programmers
    - Cool parties organized by the HR team

    Minpunten

    - They don't have respect to women in the company and top management is sexist, making often horrible comments about female workers
    - Management doesn't care about people, only the results
    - Crunching hours are horrible and people are stressed, afraid to lose a job and powerless
    - Nobody cares about you or your improvement - you won't get an increase in a salary if you don't know a lot of people in the company and are not friends with the top management

    Advies aan management

    Shuffle the whole management team, maybe you'll achieve something.

    Pluspunten

    +High wages
    +Best food
    +Great sky diving expierence
    +United Emirates of Arabia is a great coutry

    Minpunten

    -No extra salary for over time!!!!
    -A lot of cycle crunch work hours
    -The employees are being used are pure resources, fake goals to milk the most out of them and afterwards throw in the garbage can with barely payment
    -The company has an annoying constant phobia of Russia with believing news such as:
    Russia invaded crimea
    Putin is a dictator who can do whatever he wants
    etc .......

    -Horrible management who are sometimes even lost with the product itself and who are there just because they have invested a lot of time in the company.

    Advies aan management

    Stop treating your employees like pure resources and hire some real management.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij CD PROJEKT RED (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - they make amazing games, best of the best
    - really professional atmosphere, corporate-like, not emotional, like in some other places. There will be no situation where somebody will yell at you etc. This happens a lot in smaller firms.
    - overtime WAS paid and it WAS voluntary. You could say "no".
    - parking space, cantina, quite nice office

    Minpunten

    - nice office, though very crowded
    - low salaries. Junior workers earning very, very little, way below industry standard in Poland, senior workers earning 70% of what they can get in other AAA Polish studios. Generally people work there for the project despite the salary.
    - because there is so many people, you don't feel like the project is "yours". You are just the guy who textured jackets of peasants, or animated 3 monsters and a siege tower. And then somebody else took those and tweaked them more, so your original work is not even really in the final game.

    Advies aan management

    Not really, at the time I worked there it seemed they are doing whatever they can in those conditions (giant company, giant project, small budget in comparison to, for example, Destiny or GTAV)

    Pluspunten

    Company with a lot of talented people who are extremely hard-working.

    Paid crunch

    Good career options

    They're trying

    Minpunten

    Incompetent, inefficient, indecisive directors who have very little idea about the organizational, financial and technological consequences of their actions.

    Unrealistic milestone dates vs. expectations leading to heavy crunch.

    Leadership with no management skills.

    Nepotism

    Pre-production is production with unlimited iterations. Fans say that's what makes CD Projekt the best, but it also costs people's lives.

    No 360 reviews. Your lead reviews you, you can't review them. Their boss reviews them, but their boss doesn't really know anything about their performance.

    When other companies aim for zero crunch, this company ships off it.

    Overlapping leadership and conflict of interest and specialization

    Advies aan management

    Fix your corporate structure

    This company needs decisive leadership not highly paid, stock-optioned people who still have an unclear vision after how many years?

    Pluspunten

    - some folks were cool and talented, but usually they had quit soon..
    - parking lot
    - social events where ok

    Minpunten

    - really toxic, 'corpo' atmosphere where you have to watch out for what you say and to whom
    - many people from management are unexperienced, it seems that the only reason they were promoted is that they knew someone from management before. All good people are leaving this company sooner or later.
    - chaos in decision making process
    - tons of your work and engagement will be lost, because things are started and ended in chaotic, thoughtless way
    - micromanagement
    - hard crunching times, which are direct consequences of the decision making process
    - many people is afraid to take any responsibility( especially management guys ), so at the very end decisions are often made by regular workers, who simply have a hard deadline to achieve and cannot wait
    - if anything fails( and fails a lot in this company ), 'the guilty' has to be found - obviously, he/she is always found among regular workers...
    - work is generally boring and repetitive - most of the time you will spend on re-implementing things that were cancelled a few weeks later. You cannot simply use old stuff, because in the meantime most of the things has changed or are gone, because the general vision has changed, etc
    - if you want to gain unique experience and learn something new - you won't find it there
    - unfortunately, things are getting worse and worse with every month IMO

    Advies aan management

    Well, management is generally close-minded, so I won't waste my time on giving them any advices - they won't listen anyway.

    Pluspunten

    You'll meet nice and talented folks. You'll also see them run away once they'll catch on with what's going on here.

    Minpunten

    Almost everyone from higher and middle managment have clear game vision - regrettably those visions are contradictory. Since those visions are clear no need to discuss them.

    CEO is only one willing to take responsibilty and make tough decisions. He also erratic and chaotic person with no interest in gaming.

    None of these noblemen are open to feedback as anyone bellow their level is here merely to take orders not to "criticise". At beast you'll be listened to no effect.

    Design changes based on cloud patterns, dice roll or what was in TV the night before.

    This company has over 400 workers but it's still run as rock band or castle: there are few pals around whom everything is revolving. The rest are expandables.

    Crunch here is insane. We read about Bungie's crunch and ME:Andromeda crunch and laughed. And crunch will hit current project hard. Because spreadsheet planning + incompetent overssers = hemorrhoids, bad back and depression.

    Advies aan management

    Just retire, or focus on family. Please leave making games to poeple who actually who play them, make them and love them.

    Pluspunten

    The company still looks good on the resume, but this is likely to change to the opposite in coming months

    Minpunten

    Work-life balance is non-existent at the company

    Decision paralysis that leads to them being made at whim of studio director and often reversed afterwards

    Large turnover, experienced people leave in frustration and are not replaced by employees of equal skill

    "Feels over reals" attitude perpetuated by HR and forced upon engineering which drives skilled people out of the company

    Extremely politicized work environment, where connections and position trump knowledge and experience

    Low salaries, even in comparison to other game development studios in Poland

    Advies aan management

    At this point it seems that the entire management would have to diametrically change their behavior to repair the damage which doesn't seem likely

    Pluspunten

    You would imagine "working at an AAA project", but it's no pro at all. Stay away.

    Minpunten

    - Lack of motivation to improve, despite hearing the need for it at every corner.
    - Gut-feeling decision-making; lack of reasonable approach to proposals or feedback.
    - "Culture of blame" approach instead of culture of feedback and praise.
    - Absurdly long crunch preferred over life/work balance.
    - Lack of motivation palpable at every level.
    - Higher management closed in an ivory tower; unwilling to hear feedback from the lower tiers.
    - Organizational chaos.
    - Absent, erratic CEO.
    - Organization that aims at survival; prefers to provide high bonuses to higher management rather than invest in the company long-term.

    Advies aan management

    None, management wouldn't listen anyway.
