    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Epic Games (Langer dan 5 jaar)

    Pluspunten

    Some benefits are great, others are just there for show.
    100% paid health insurance
    Big name and big player in the video game company
    There are some really cool people here
    The employee events are fun.
    They have a really amazing summer family picnic. They pull out all the stops and really go above and beyond to make it an enjoyable experience.
    You get a mandatory week off for Christmas and two weeks off in the summer
    Free lunch every day, 5 different options
    People play video games during their work day, even if they shouldn't
    They put a lot of effort and thought into the benefits and employee morale offerings

    Minpunten

    They are reactionary. Nothing is planned in advance. Projects and work happen last minute and things are changed 100% of the time at the last minute.

    Everyone is overworked and expected to be on call. Ask what the culture is, it roughly translates to "workaholic".

    People are scared to take vacation. So now they mandate 3 weeks a year where the company closes down and most people are off. But this just made it harder to take time off outside of these weeks.

    Contrary to the benefits doc, there is no flex work/schedules. You are expected to work in the office at least 9.5 hours a day. Your manager unofficially approves and sets which hours you work. You won't know if you're displeasing your manager until review time.

    People stay for the benefits, learn to shut up and not make waves.

    Poor managment skills. HR is pro management and managers/HR plays favorites.

    Advies aan management

    Be honest and open about the work environment.

    Pluspunten

    The company as a whole takes care of you, good benefits, they are doing amazing things with the engine and game.

    Minpunten

    Favoritism is definitely a thing here. Anything you say that management doesn't like could get you let go instantly. Very reactionary to gaming news and events, doesn't plan in advance, always crunching.

    Advies aan management

    Some management could use classes on how to actually manage a team

    Pluspunten

    I've worked at 8 companies in the game industry over a 20 year career, including two of the big four publishers. Epic is by far the least political, most principled, and most inspiring place I've been. The management group genuinely cares for the team, and they show it by offering every benefit under the sun.

    Minpunten

    Epic is driven by an ambitious vision and works hard to make it a reality ASAP. The team moves fast, and work/life balance can suffer at times. Of course that's true of most game industry jobs, what's unique about Epic is that for many here the mission is worth working hard for.

    Advies aan management

    Continue investing in larger teams to scale back workload, but don't sacrifice the culture of innovation at speed that got you here.

    Pluspunten

    Catered lunch, can wear what you want at your desk, snacks and drinks

    Minpunten

    Horribly unorganized, will tell you one thing and it will be another behind your back, constantly changing proven procedures for no reason other than to do it, Let go of people without giving them a chance to correct an issue and then no replacing the agent and shifting the work load of the terminated agent to the rest.

    Advies aan management

    Stop changing things up every other day. Decide what you are gonna do and set it in stone. You are causing undue stress to your agents and doing a disservice to players constantly changing up work flows and procedures. Stick with your word if you tell an agent something is ok then its ok. Give agent a chance to speak for themselves and be made aware of issues that are happening. No job have I ever worked has a company just let somebody go without at least speaking with them once and telling them what the issue is and what needs to be changed. Its very strange to be let go and then have to heard from a 3rd party what MAY have been the issue and having never been given a chance to fix it. Also lighten up some this job is not life or death. Its support for a video game,lame personalities and stern attitudes kill the fun of working at a video game company. There is no reason a job doing support for a video game company should be this extremely stressful. It might come as a shock but "firing to send a message" as I was told is not a good look and not a good way to get people to work harder. It instills fear and increases stress.

    You should let kids who play the game work there for at least 100 dollars a month
