    Pros

    In my previous studio I was a number, a ressource and we were policed for the time we arrived to work. I was stressed and felt horrible there. Here I finally am treated as a human, an adult and a professional. How crazy is that?? - Management trusts you to do your job in the way you want. - calm and stress/crunch-free work environment. They listen and react if there is a problem. - They are not afraid to congratulate you when you do a good job. - free drinks/cereal/breakfirst/icecream - social events on fridays - a chef comes every friday to cook for us. -you can bring your dog to work! -The studio is full of very friendly people with lots of clubs -Interesting & different AAA projects. They let you choose wich one interest you the most to work on. -very open minded studio that is trying to improve its culture continusly

    Cons

    -The only real thing I see is the fact that Gobo is a codev studio and it can be a bit frustrating to only work for other people's project at times. -There is a small lack of very experienced game designer in the studio.

    Pros

    Studio Gobo is a great place to be. The studio is lovely, with a family atmosphere and the projects are world-class. I love that the team really cares about things that matter inside and outside of the games industry and seems to have active involvement in all of it: diversity, inclusion, climate change, charity and education. They are very helpful if you're joining from another city or overseas and very accommodating to new starters. The company understands that people move with their families, and there are lots of opportunities for families (partners and kids) to meet one another at social gatherings inside and outside of the studio.

    Cons

    Gobo only tends to work on AAA console titles. This probably isn't the place for you if you're interested in a different platform.
