    I worked at Realtime Worlds full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good sense of community. International recruitment brings diversity and fun to the work place.

    Cons

    They went bust. Like many games companies, if you aren't a coder, then it is not really any avenue for progression.

    I worked at Realtime Worlds full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great professional people with high passion for games combined with a good atmosphere. As a foreigner I strongly remember how great HR was in providing support and making one feel good in the city and company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately due to bad time management an original idea got released to early and led to a horrible awakening (bankruptcy) - In the last phase the amount of producers increased in an unnatural rate, although the ship has sailed long before. And it was more about content than anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much left to share to - as the company no longer exists. At some point I am sure the upper management realized where and when exactly they made the wrong decisions.

    I worked at Realtime Worlds

    Pros

    It's in a nice location, cost of living is very low.
    Artists, programmers and sound guys are mostly of an excellent standard. Although there are a handful of clueless newbies.

    Cons

    Too many producers, very few of whom do anything useful.
    Too many designers, none of whom are particularly good.
    Hierarchy is very rigid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the useless third.
