I worked at Codemasters full-time (More than 5 years)
Codies is full of truly talented, dedicated and passionate people, an inspiring place to work. Their projects are a labour of love and the quality of the games is second to none.
Lots of competition for advancement particularly in the lower ranks. If you want the move onto bigger and better things, the opportunities will present themselves but you'll need to be patient and prepared.
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Codemasters.
The interview process takes 4-6 hours, both technical and conversational interviews. Talk a lot about their company's culture. Worth to work if you really into it. Many Data structure problems (HashMap, Linklist, Tree, Graph.....) Prepare yourself before applying.
