Great place to work if you're able to adapt quickly

I worked at Jagex full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good work ethic, generally good direct management, good teams to work with and freedom and flexibility. A much better employer than many others

Cons

Very low probability of moving up the ranks without stabbing others in the back. Very male-oriented, considering there are plenty of female staff

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for talent beyond your circle

    Amazing when we started, then it went steadily downhill

    I worked at Jagex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great colleagues - the best you could hope for, good food (used to do free daily fruit but they stopped it), free company clothing (occasionally what you ordered), good days out (used to be holidays abroad, fair enough as this would be too costly now)

    Cons

    Inept management with no idea of the gaming industry, seem intent on turning it into a call centre

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the longer serving members of staff - they are your customers as well

    I have been working at Jagex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very well experienced staff, well paid, I enjoy working with the games. I'd even do voluntary work at Jagex!

    Cons

    Very few; maybe I've seen the better side, but it is a fantastic atmosphere, lovely staff and we have great events!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on less about the money and more about the opportunities and content.
