    I worked at Games Workshop full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good camaraderie, decent discount, excellent training.

    Cons

    Driven be nepotism and personalities rather than objective, measurable performance-more 'who you know' than what you do.
    When they're done with you they will get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    Have your professionals aware of law, pay better and give growth and development opportunities. Listen to both sides!

    Pros

    good cantine, local to where I live

    Cons

    Appearances are deceiving.
    People seem friendly but if you don't fit in they will report you behind your back without batting an eyelash and the management will use any excuse to get rid of you. The culture of the company does not permit anybody who is different to survive for long. It is all very personal, which makes it so unprofessional. If you have another job opportunity at the same time, perhaps you should take that one.

    Advice to Management

    Get your priorities right and employ the best people for the job, not the ones you like best and who will come to your painting and playing afternoons.
