Salary, benefits and offices are great. Generally nice people and Belgrade is an fun and interesting place to live for a bit.
Nordeus is really a tech company that just so happens to make games - or rather made a game...ten years ago. (The latest efforts and offerings are notably scant and flakey executed derivatives)
Since then, despite its financial success and hiring top global talent it cannot help itself to stifle real change. It fails in its principle purpose - making games.
The surrounding functions are pretty good - marketing, hr, catering, etc...but the creativity and game making is micro managed and in conflict with overall strategy.
I fear the strategic conflict is the nail in the coffin for this moribund studio - coupled with the stubborn, sometimes arrogant, dismissive attitude to those with real experience they hire. It gets a bit embarrassing. Effort is diverted from making games to managing ego and relationships in a fearful environment.
It’s a real shame - as it has/had everything to needed to succeed, save perhaps a lack of ego in the top leadership.
Advice to Management
Empower those with experience - and/or step aside.
