    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Crytek (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    - mostly very nice atmosphere in the office, working among talented and ambitious people
    - you can find - and excell in - a great load of creativity and a focus on quality work on every department
    - flexible working hours based on trust and commitment
    - German labor law f.t.w and the content of your employment contract is pretty fair

    Minpunten

    - the focus on excellent quality is on the verge to being obsessive. Too much focus on graphics
    - middle management here and there is occupied with rather untalented people who grind the gears too much.
    - upper management is too self-satisfactory, taking the employee's sacrifice a tad too much for granted.

    Advies aan management

    There are ways of going through a crisis upright and as a unified team. This requires honesty, respect, trust and gratitude going both ways.
    Sugar-coating ugly situations and withholding information an employee desperately needs in order to make his/her own life-changing decisions is certainly not the way you should run this

    "Talented people, Major Systemic Issues"

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Crytek (Langer dan 10 jaar)

    Pluspunten

    Lots of talented, driven people. Some of them are really nice.
    Frankfurt is a very livable city.
    Focus on quality.
    Pay and conditions are good. German employment law is strong. 24 days of vacation, and what crunch time there is will be given back as extra vacation.
    Past projects have been great to work on. Current and future projects could equally be so. But these are not the AAA projects of old.

    Minpunten

    Someone more senior than me described the systemic problems with Crytek as "a company of four that grew to a thousand and nobody changed the way it operated".
    It's chaotic, and that means you can be lucky and end up on a great team with lots of creative freedom and able to achieve your goals without fuss. But you could end up on a toxic team working for years on a project that never gets released having your creativity crushed by politics, personality issues and bad management.
    HR do not have the power to prevent bad hires and promotions - directors can just bypass them completely. Strong German employment laws keep them in the studio for years. Sometimes you end up working with or for someone who has no idea what they are doing and is just winging it.
    Communication is so bad that people use it as a currency, withholding information from people to maintain power or appear important. Gossip is rife because of this.
    The studio was once in central Frankfurt with an easy commute, but has now moved back to the industrial eastern suburbs.
    I really hope Crytek hold together, but I left for a more stable future.

    Advies aan management

    The company needs a top to bottom restructure with a focus on goals and values that you can hold people accountable to.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Crytek (Langer dan 3 jaar)

    Pluspunten

    The climate at Crytek is very special. It does feel like working with friends.

    Well, you won't find the "perfect" company. It just doesn't exist!
    But working at Crytek can be fun. They let you do your job.
    Never I had more freedom to be creative in my job. It was fun working at Crytek!

    I left because the salary issue they had and because my job was obsolete.

    Minpunten

    Communication was sometimes not very efficiant.
    Salaries are propably market rate, but low for Frankfurt area.

    Advies aan management

    More communication with staff on all levels. Crytekkers like that.

    Pluspunten

    Staffed by interesting characters from all over the world. Genuinely miss hanging out with them, getting beers after work. We argued a lot and even resented one another, but we had a lot of laughs and friendly banter too.

    Minpunten

    Continuously late on pay-checks for a long, long time.

    Advies aan management

    I hope you get through your present troubles and find success in your current and future franchises.

    Pluspunten

    -Really Nice people, Nice warm mood
    -Talented people
    -Flexible working hour, literally flexible mood
    -German labor law

    Crytek is a really nice place to work. it was the best company to me and it will be.
    company has a really nice culture with international workers, employee were mostly very nice. HR was really supportive and nice.

    company has really flexible working culture, and my manager and lead were very generous guys. I really appreciate to nice people in Crytek.

    I've been through all bad times in crytek last year, only because of my co-workers, my team.

    I really wish I can work with my team again one day.

    Minpunten

    -bad location of new office
    -too much obsession with graphic
    -bad attitude of upper management

    The project could've been more ambitious if upper management made a right decision.
    I hope they make a smart decision for the future projects.

    and I hope people lose the illusion of graphics. I admit the game in crytek had best graphical quality, but no gamer would care if the game were boring.

    Advies aan management

    do not take the employee's sacrifice for granted.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Crytek (Langer dan 8 jaar)

    Pluspunten

    * Nice, talented and helpful colleagues
    * A very friendly and cascual work enviroment
    * Good benefits (Fruits, Drinks, Job-Ticket, Gym-Membership, Events)
    * Interesting Projects
    * A diverse and international team
    * Flexible work hours
    * Great support for new employees (Temporary Company Apartments, Help with public authorities, Good HR processes to get settled within Crytek)

    Minpunten

    * Not every process & responsibility is clearly defined (eg. career opportunities)
    * No clear transparency on "What's going on behind the scenes"
    * Management & Leads should establish a better way to determine and deal with the effectiveness of employees, as there are no implications when employees are constantly engaged with private stuff (in a way that affects their productivity)

    Advies aan management

    Work on processes and communication, especially about the overall direction Crytek is heading.
    Get into direct contact with your employees & show you care about them!
