    Pros

    It is fun working in a gaming company, lots of talented people with good sense of humor.

    Cons

    Hard to get a work done usually due to lack of operation excellence, everything is all over the place. A "boss company"

    Pros

    Some of the best work/life balance in the industry. Their goal is to be efficient with their time. Good pay/benefits, No crunch! Nice location

    Cons

    Top-heavy decision-making. Most of the time it feels like someone high above decided something and that is the law. Quite a lot of talent have left since joining.

    Pros

    Generally nice and helpful people, good HR people who don't just work for the bosses but help out with many problems.

    Cons

    Company doesn't seem to have a long-term goal apart from the games they make. The engine is slowly improving, but people are leaving so often that features are left half-finished and sometimes remain in the engine unfinished for several release builds.

    Pros

    - Autonomy in doing things - Free Coffee, Free Gym and public transport partially free

    Cons

    - Company has no proper outlook for the future, no Next Gen and no mobile support in the engine! Nobody will want to use Cryengine going forward! Extremely complicated, outdated documentation! - Hunt is doing well right now but how long before Crytek goes south again and can't pay salaries again? - Endless stupid discussions with engineers about what to do next - Nobody wants to take responsibility for anything nor steer the company in a clear direction - Everything has to be escalated to Executive Management which makes the decision process very lengthy, arbitrary and worthless, whoever can convince the Yerlis best wins - Support to Users/Licensees non-existent
