    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Techland

    Pluspunten

    - great people;
    - some good projects.

    Minpunten

    - low salaries;
    - outdated approach (sexism, bad overall company culture);
    - nepotism;
    - employing and promoting people not based on skills;
    - small-town approach to pretty much everything;
    - lack of professionalism;
    - micromanagement, egotism;
    - constant "being in the process of creating a process";
    - the company doesn't know what it wants.

    Advies aan management

    Realize the company has grown, and act accordingly. Limit micromanagement, and make sure people you promote to higher positions don't lack necessary basic skills.

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan bij Techland

    Pluspunten

    - Interesting projects (not only zombie games)
    - Great, talented people who are able to create great things (despite awful technology)
    - Relaxed atmosphere
    - No-crunch policy
    - Opportunity to develop your skills and learn from more experienced people
    - Wages paid on time

    Minpunten

    - Technology and tools years behind industry standard (you need to get used to working using notepad)
    - "Good enough" mentality among Wroclaw top management resulting in heavy reuse of previous projects game code and outdated technology
    - Hands-on CEO (residing in Wroclaw) often intervenes in game design and always has final word in every decision (he always knows best despite being advised otherwise)
    - Low to average salaries and very poor bonuses

    Advies aan management

    - Start trusting in the people you hire and listen to their advice instead of trying to make them accept your point of view
    - Improve the technology and tools before trying to make another AAA game - stop trying to develop AAA games based on the previous title game code and technology.
    - Think about investing some real money in the people doing all the hard work if you want to keep them. When they make the decision to leave, they will leave no matter what they are offered at that point.

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

    Pluspunten

    - Home-like atmosphere. With it's all pros and cons, but in general it's a good thing. It's very hard to not know most of the people after a year or two.
    - Directness - people out there prefer more a direct contact, than 'channels' and 'procedures'
    - They really keep up with the technology and hardware
    - There are producers that really care for your work atmosphere and are there to support you
    - If something wrong is going on - people realize and talk it out. Weird situations get solved eventually, either they are personal conflicts or missed ideas in management.
    - They pay good actually
    - No strict corporate management

    Minpunten

    - Some of the decisive (especialy in Art department) people are here just because of their years experience, not actual experience, not really adding any value to the project.
    - People who actually know their stuff are easily fired if they are not 'liked' enough by majority (jealousy might sound like a cliche but here it's a real thing, especialy among artists)
    - A lot of good people working on the most profitable projects were either fired or left without any chance for negotiations
    - People with junior experience can easily get promoted - but they still remain juniors.
    - Almost none or very low bonuses
    - Almost no crunch, and if so it's negotiated in advance

    Advies aan management

    Focus on specialists - they made you. Forget democracy, you know by now it doesnt work here.

    People in general, industry itself, attractive projects, some of the benefits, HR team, you can learn from other pros there

    Minpunten

    Micromanagement, managers without people skills, lack of trust, lack of work life balance, weird bonus system (you need to be close to ceo to get an attractive one)

    Advies aan management

    Invest in people other than developers, trust your people

    Pluspunten

    In-house engine & tools give a lot of opportunities to gain unique knowledge (from low-level thru consoles to big data). Technology dept is separated (but not too far) from game development. You build tools/engine for the rest of company. Access to new devices/tools before they enter the market (vrs, cpus, gpus, consoles etc) Benefits (medical care, parties, canteen) and a lot of experienced people that are able to create cool games

    Minpunten

    Large codebase, sometimes outdated, but it`s not a problem for skilled engineer after a few months. Like in every big company I`ve worked - small dose of creative chaos that sometimes bite

    Advies aan management

    keep up the good work

    Pluspunten

    ... but most of the opinions were outdated - project management, people and company itself are completely different than mentioned here few years ago - both in Wroclaw and Warsaw.

    Minpunten

    In most cases - you have to move from another city to work at Techland, but Wroclaw is a great place to live - it's much smaller than Warsaw or Cracow, but dense, so every important place you need outside work is closer to you.

    Advies aan management

    Keep listening to people - they really know what are they doing and what tools they need to be effective at their work!

    -Low salaries

    Advies aan management

    Let people do their job and listen to them. At this point every manager only says YES to the CEO who doesn't have the international business experience to make the right decisions. Also learn how to motivate your teams, Salaries are not a motivational tool.
