Featured Review

Current Employee - QA Analyst

I have been working at Ready At Dawn Studios full-time for more than a year

Pros

Excellent development team culture, lots of comradery and passionate. Not too crunch-oriented, very diverse and inclusive. Free work gym courtesy of the Irvine Company, a fully stocked kitchen, and a... relatively relaxed PTO/sick time expectation.

Cons

Lower than average pay, even for the games industry. Communication between production and the dev team can be strenuous and at times absent. Lots of growing pains between departments.
