I worked at Epic Games

Pros

Great smart people with passion for what they do. Free snacks in the break room and a very cool culture.

Cons

Long long hours during crunch before the latest game gets released. Some days are pretty stressful. Teams in different areas don't interact much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't have any particular advice or feedback for the leadership of Epic Games at this time. They mostly do great.

    I have been working at Epic Games full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are plenty of directions that you can go, internally. The people make this company the living organism that it is, and it shows. For a game dev, they focus on the person and family, which is massively different from the industry norm.

    Cons

    The company is always changing, and that adds a volatile feeling to some projects. When the company focused on one project, there was a stability with that direction. With as many new areas as they're getting into, it makes you wonder which projects will survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very well placed management, although the company has to grow in employees in certain areas.

    Pros

    Smart people work there. Management is honest and forthcoming. The quality of the work being done is extremely high. They always strive to do the right thing for customers and employees alike.

    Cons

    There are a lot of locations so a lot of coordination is required but Epic handles it at least as well as any spread-out company could.
