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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    Listen to your employees and customers more.

    Pros

    My experience at Cryptic has been almost exclusively positive. Management is receptive to feedback and most of the employees have a very strong team-oriented attitude. I see little of the workplace drama that I've experienced at many other companies. Much less mandatory overtime than many other game developers.

    Cons

    Not enough staff for the QA department. Like many other companies in the industry, QA has few advancement options unless they leave the department - and not everyone can get that opportunity.
