Positive memories

Other (Former Employee)

ProsI found Jagex to be a friendly company where you're encouraged to be creative and put your ideas forward. Sure, every business has its bad points and communication can always be improved but if you're preapred to put in the hours and share your ideas then its a rewarding place to be. Nice to have an on-site canteen which encourages everyone to be socialable and get to know each other.

ConsTraffic around the Science Park can be a nightmare...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: - Pay is very good for UK/Cambridge games industry. - Great benefits package incl. private healthcare, life assurance, pension plan, subsidised canteen, free bike repairs, local… Cons: - Upper management decisions frequently seem knee-jerk, irrational and aimless, explanations sometimes feel dishonest or outright delusional. - Dire communication - news often reaches staff from… Advice to Senior Management: Don't get too absorbed in your own small world and listen to people with experience from outside. Communication needs to be improved hugely, both internally and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
