Pros

Talented, passionate people working there. Easy to make great friends. Fantastic folks to work with.

A real love for making games that people want to play.

Even when laying employees off, they provided a great deal of support in the process: HR went above and beyond to help place former employees where they could.

Pay wasn't super-competitive, but benefits like the cantina are incredible.

Cons

Not enough trust given to the American employees. We had veterans who'd been in the field for a decade or more being told their experience didn't mean anything; they had to do things in accordance with the Reykjavik way. There was a distinct feeling of the Old Boys Club.

Difficult to advance internally. Some positions had no job descriptions attached to them -- nothing outlining their responsibilities and skillsets -- for years.

Management had difficulty accepting the possibility they might be wrong. The most heartfelt admission of making mistakes happened only when 20% of the company had to be let go. By then, it was too late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are ways that CCP excels by not doing things the way that other companies do things. There are also weaknesses in the company that come from the same attitude. Please, look critically at the internal practices. Building EVE is something to be rightfully proud of. But heavy employee dissatisfaction is a grave warning sign that something is continually going wrong, not something to be shrugged off and set on the back burner.
