I have been working at Cryptic Studios

Pros

good people at the bottom. great place to work techincally, some of the best engineers I've worked with in my career

Cons

people with no understanding of quality or how to make good products on top. performance measured by nepotism and egos, not actualy skill

Advice to ManagementAdvice

try to develop a culture that cares about quality and making good products. study the state of the art, try to catch up.

    I worked at Cryptic Studios

    Pros

    Cryptic Studios is a typical game company combining a lot of "play" with the work. Movie days, Star Trek showings at lunch time, etc. This all makes for a fun environment to be in.

    Cons

    The company looks only as salaries not contributions when budget cuts are made. You could have two people doing the same job and one barely works the other spends night and day there, but which ever made more money when it was time to cut someone loose would always be the one to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the knowledge and contributions of your employees. Look at what your getting for you $$ before deciding that the largest salary is the one that needs to leave.

    I worked at Cryptic Studios

    Pros

    You are in a fun atmosphere. You get to play their product and have input into the company.

    Cons

    There is little incentive for making suggestions and little recognition of those suggestions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and customers more.
