Regular titles to work on
New studio culture allows everyone to have input into the games we make.
A lot of the 'old guard' have gone
Old studio structure is being phased out....thankfully
Company seems to be focusing on it roots again, instead of chasing the competiton who have much bigger budgets.
Out in the country
Job doesn't always feel secure in the current economical climate
Recent games haven't as good as hoped... hopefully this is starting to change
Company doesn't seem to be profitable, instead, just breaking even or even operating at a loss. Again, hoping this changes soon.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're currently doing. The new studio culture seems to be gaining momentum. Remember to listen to you 'talented staff' (as you like to call us all the time). Listen to us BECAUSE we are talented....and we're very passionate about what we do. We're not just developers who knock out games. Treat your staff well and they'll be happy. It's hard in these times, but pay reviews would be very welcome.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Codemasters.
The interview process takes 4-6 hours, both technical and conversational interviews. Talk a lot about their company's culture. Worth to work if you really into it. Many Data structure problems (HashMap, Linklist, Tree, Graph.....) Prepare yourself before applying.
