    I worked at Jagex full-time (More than 5 years)


    - Was a stable work place in the time I was there. I never had any doubts that I would be paid - HR Formalities were very good. A process for everything. - The canteen was fantastic. Really the best thing about Jagex. - Interesting and intelligent colleagues. There are a lot of friends to be made here.


    - Virtually no ethnic diversity - Small age range of staff. Too graduate friendly - which is abused by management knowing that they don't know any better. "Benefits" and parties are dangled at you in the hope it will be enough to make you forget all their sins. - The technologies in use are all either old, or proprietry. Meaning you end up with no transferrable skills and rarely learn anything that is useful outside the company walls. - Stingy on hardware. Many developers working on 5+ year old machines with poor spec. - Truly ridiculous network set up. Architecture makes some tasks that should be trivial into something that can take you days and completely block your work process in the meanwhile. - Unable to work from home. - Management is very unecessarily secretive and almost everything turns into gossip and is therefore misinterpreted - Uninformed management. Many people higher up take decisions on things without doing their due dilligence. In some cases, just pulling rank on issues they know nothing about and have specifically hired experts to do for them. - Projects are constantly changed, even down to the last few days before release. Major structural modifications are called for, or large new features demanded with no viable reason or sign off. - More than half of the project I worked on were never launched. Incredibly demoralising and frustrating to so regularly have months of you work thrown out the window. Can't imagine how much it must cost them each time.
