Trying hard to grow out of RuneScape

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsStable company making a lot of money
Great attention to employees
Nice place to work and good perks
Loads of great people

ConsDoesn't pay as much as it could
Has no idea how to make a game other than Runescape
Doesn't seem to be able to manage contradiction
Overconfident because of financial success, while it should be modest and try to learn how to make a proper game
Paranoid security policy

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to people who actually know how to get a game done from scratch, and don't think that Runescape is the way it's done today.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
