    I have been working at NaturalMotion full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoy working here. benefits are up to par, can't complain. life and work balance is fair, never feel overworked. Yes, even with deadlines.

    It feels like they are still feeling their way through as a startup. All an all they are headed in the right direction.

    Cons

    I hate to be honest and say there is no real cons, at least for me.

    Only thing that comes to mind is.. training is lacking but nothing serious. you can read-up on most things and people are always willing to help.

    I have been working at NaturalMotion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been here a while and when I joined there was excitement in the company it felt like we were breaking new ground.

    Technology is cool and there is a desire to produce quality products.

    There are some great titles in production.

    Cons

    Lacks leadership, managers aren't trained so you have to do what you are told.

    A lot of good people have left so the company feels like a very different place. A lot of people are looking around for other opportunities.

    The exec team seem to be avoiding the issues and have just stepped up hiring to fill the gaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your staff, give us great mangers to work with.

    Start to trust the people so they can get on with their work rather than sitting on them all the time or busting in and pulling good ideas to the ground.

    Great company. Good management compared to AAA companies. Some inexperienced people.

    Pros

    Great management, management actually listens to your feedback. (as long as you put the effort in to make them listen to you)
    Very ambitious projects with amazing one of a kind tech.
    Nice atmosphere and friendly people.
    Very approachable CEO.

    Cons

    Some inexperienced people. The gap between AAA studios in overall experience is very noticeable however it is closing at a rapid rate.
    Experience is not always recognized.
    Big differences between the different studio's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more high quality experienced people and pay for it!!

    I have been working at NaturalMotion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It´s ok if it´s your first job

    Cons

    You have to repeat the same and the same thing during years because of the incompetence of the people. Too many useless managers producers, etc.... They treat you and pay you really bad. You have to teach leads how to do things. I would not recommend this company to anybody.
