Pros

Some of the best, most talented people around. Comparatively decent work/life balance.

Cons

Corporate overlords add unnecessary anxiety to the company, but don't detract as badly as at other larger places.

Advice to Management

Diversify. MMOs are a dying breed. Start a mobile team and experiment.

    Love Cryptic

    Pros

    Great group of guys and very nice environment. They have been good about not crunching us too much. It is nice sized in that it is small enough to still have a big impact but large enough to be stable and have a few perks.

    Cons

    The only reason I left Cryptic was because I could get more money elsewhere. I still miss working at Cryptic and if they could pay more I would probably go back.

    I worked at Cryptic Studios full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Interesting people to work with. Flexible hours. Good health insurance. Dog friendly office. Cool IPs to work on. Powerful and flexible game editor for content design--one of the best I've seen.

    Cons

    Disorganized. Management constantly changing & constantly changing their minds. The company cares a great deal about creativity, but puts almost no value on management skills. This ends up creating extra work and plenty of false starts. Also poor on communication. Low end of the salary range.
