What Employees Say
I have been working at Double Helix Games
Interesting projects, very nice and talented crew. Management cared about the employees. Best experience I've ever had working for a game developer.
Not much, I loved working there.
I have been working at Cloud Imperium Games full-time for more than 3 years
Genuine people, awesome talent pool and scope of the project is unprecedented. It's incredible to see over 500 employees worldwide working toward a single goal. Benefits are great- employees have the... flexibility to work from home, medical, dental, and vision coverage are free, paid time off, holidays, and subsidized transportation benefits are provided. We also get the entire week off during the Christmas holidays and have received end of year bonuses as well (apart from receiving increases from yearly performance reviews)
long hours which is expected in the gaming industry. but the company tries to combat crunch times by providing us free food and gives us time off in lieu of staying late so it works out. The biggest... issue I had was with this recruiter who was absolutely rubbish in his job. He was supposed to help us find candidates, and in interviews he would spend the entire time talking and promoting himself, made empty promises to our candidates which was never approved, amongst many other issues we had. He was very rude and unprofessional towards candidates and really tainted the company name. I made a formal complaint to HR together with several managers who had this experience and thank god he was removed from his position.
Advice to Management
Please double check past references for recruiters as they are representing the company and we cannot have that experience again. in terms of development, better communication across studios... would be ideal as different time zones does have it's challenges.
