    "A studio with a great history that doesn't rest on its laurels"

    I have been working at Rocksteady full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The studio has some amazing talent that whilst being world class is still humble and respectful. There is respect for everyone there and the desire to make an amazing product is contagious.

    The studio has loads of opportunities for socialising in lunch hour gaming / sports clubs and other out of office hours events.

    All in all there are loads of great reasons to work there.

    Cons

    I really struggle here, whenever I've thought of something and mentioned it to a manager, magically the issue seems to get resolved almost instantly. I realise that doesn't sound like a con, but like every workplace ever of course there'll be some issue when there's a moderately sized team of individuals working together. Never have I seen a workplace turn cons around into resolved issues quicker than at Rocksteady.

    Advice to Management

    They value each individual from my observations and its clear that the management understands that it takes every member of the team to make something fresh and innovative that hits the quality threshold that Rocksteady is known for.

    The positive support and encouragement should be lauded and maintained in my opinion.

    Sometimes you have to work overtime? Show me a studio where that isn't the case though...

    I worked at Rocksteady as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people, amazing parties, good benefits

    Cons

    If on a contract there is a lot of uncertainty as they do not let you know about any extensions until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    To have a bit more compassion for contractors as they work just as hard and are just as loyal as permanent employees
