    Super awesome amazing company to work for!!!!

    Environment Artist (Current Employee) Santa Monica, CA

    ProsYou get to work on some of the most amazing and critically acclaimed games.
    You get to work with THE most talented people in the industry, everyone they hire is a seasoned professional- Senior or Lead level actually.
    They pay very well for this talent and if you perform well and stick around you get WELL compensated for it with shipping bonuses and quarterly bonuses that can be a very big percentage of your yearly salary!
    The Culture is fun and people are friendly and have lots of activities and lunch time fun together.
    The Leads are very nice and respect you and ask your opinion on things, not just order you around.
    A+++ Would highly recommend.

    ConsStandards are very high and there can be long hours and long crunches, but that is just because everyone is committed to making the best game we can, and they compensate you very well for working so hard.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to reduce the lengthy crunches, as others have said.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A truly amazing company

    Programmer (Former Employee)

    ProsNaughty Dog has an amazing track record of hugely successful titles. That success has attracted a lot of talent that in turn has increased the scope and quality of the products. Naughty Dog also pays well both in base salary, but also in sharing the wealth with bonuses/profit sharing. If you want to work on AAA titles with an extremely talented bunch of people and you've got what it takes then this is the company for you.

    ConsA lot of hard work. The people there are very passionate about making a quality title and that passion can translate into long work hours.
