Gearbox Software Reviews
4 people found this helpful
Pros – Gearbox makes some of the most interesting and "fun to work on" games in the industry. You won't generally be sitting around doing the same old Call of Duty-esque linear game grind; with some notable exceptions Gearbox's games tend to be pretty systemic and interesting to work on.
Additionally, the people there are extremely talented and, save for a few, very easy to work with.
Cons – If you're around for long enough, you will never be fired or chastized in any significant way. Additionally, the owners endeavor to have a lot of creative influence in the games which is often useful, but is off base just as often. The company also tries to make too many games at the same time, which always results in at least one of the games suffering.
Advice to Senior Management – Focus on fewer projects at once and trust your employees to make creative decisions.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
