I have been working at Spil Games

Pros

- fast growing and moving company (never a dull moment)
- you can really make the difference. Still small enough to take own responsibility
- great company for entrepreneurial people
- great product! - online casual and social games

Cons

- a lot of changes (als due to the market)
- although the gaming industry is fun, it is not as romantic as some people tend to feel about it.
- due to time of market sometimes decisions are made to fast

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop the HR department more - give it more body.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, cool office, trainings, great canteen and an awesome crew.

    Cons

    Every year a turnaround strategy, tends to have a copycat mindset, lead by technology driven choices. Portal (desktop) audience is in fast decline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the game studio with experienced people from companies like King. With the portal business being in rapid decline, this is Spil Games only route to a new success.

    Out of touch management. Little morale building. Homogenous and non-existent corporate culture.

    I worked at Spil Games full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Work life balance (most would leave at 5pm - and no one works on weekends).

    Cons

    -Completely idiotic management / clueless about direction
    -Most VP's are 'robots' and trying too hard to hold onto their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -They wouldn't listen anyhow, so no point.
