Great learning experience but terrible creative environment

Project Lead (Former Employee)
Encino, CA

I worked at Infinity Ward full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFantastic compensation, good advancement opportunity to those willing to grow and learn, and plenty of resources and budget to get the job done. High profile studio name and franchises to work on that allow for good experience on large budget / large audience games. Free food in the kitchen and great studio amenities for the team (large kitchen, game room, theater, gym).

ConsCreative culture is lacking due to projects confined to specific genres and mechanics and determined by publisher. Decisions, business and creative, are decided by committee on publisher level (too many cooks in the kitchen syndrome). Highly political environment focused on profit margins rather than design innovation. No freedom of expression in design, concepts, or new ideas. Business focused management out of touch with the creative and passionate side of the industry. Frequent crunch periods.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage creative innovation through open design exploration, game jam teams, experimental feature lists, and break off groups for new IPs or concepts. Listen to employees and creatives regarding creative fatigue and allow those employees an outlet for their creative frustrations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
