Pros

- Benefits are decent - Cambridge is a wonderful place - HR is some of the best I've ever worked with - Most of the employees are very good people with refined skills

Cons

- Inability to trust upper management Word is not bond. Expect to be thrown around like an unwanted orphan child. - Split-second executive decisions Expect all work you do to be able to be canned and direction changed at any moment Joined with high hopes, continuously demolished them over time until I was but a limping obligatory worker

Advice to Management

Get one good idea and stick to it, rather than keep switching between ideas. Revolutionizing an industry is tougher than succeeding in it. Try the latter.

    Pros

    The people are great!! I am working with some of the most talented people I have ever met in my life. A vast majority of the people at Jagex are not only work colleagues but also friends in and out of work. Jagex is a very personable organisation and has a great employee benefits program including the softer benefits such as team fun funds, canteen, games room, bicycle repairs. They're also really keen to get involved in supporting local charities which is really important to me.

    Cons

    There is a small but vocal minority of people who always seem to focus on the negative side of anything for example we have great facilities here with a stunning office space yet they moan about the integrity of the hand towels in the toilets.

    Pros

    The people here are friendly. Work-place Activities 2-4 times a year. Finally started listening to players.

    Cons

    People fired without notice, makes me worried of my job Frustrations while working with playerbase, we want to help but are limited Senior Management isn't competent for the job. Mark needs to stop being a two-face to the public eye

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who actually know what they are talking about to manage Stop focusing on trying to make new games, it hasn't and won't work.
