    I have been working at Crytek full-time for more than 5 years

    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 Extremely complicated, outdated documentation!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

    I worked at Crytek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    good people a big projects (in past)

    Cons

    Constant salary delays. And it's not about a delay in 1 day or week, it's not even a delay in 1 month it's a delay in 1 YEAR! I finished work in Crytek more than a year ago and they own me mone for more than 2 months of my work. At first, it was delayed for 1 week but then this time increased till I left the company. I was told that will have my money later but after a year - NOTHING. All mail is ignored and the accountant doesn't know anything about timelines. Constant lies from the Management side. They said that there was some money transfer and it's about a lack of money in the company and in the end - IGNORE! Management will LIE to you about some problems in the company, they will LIE to other people and the WILL LIE IN COURT if you are willing to collect money through the lawyers and court They're up to 10 former employees in the same situation who are just waiting for some "luck" that maybe CEO will decide to pay our money
