    I have been working at Frontier Developments full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, especially if you are starting out in the games industry.
    Really supportive team, great atmosphere and friendly people
    Not much crunch time
    Great projects, popular.
    Independent studio, team really care about what they are creating.

    Cons

    Not great for young enthusiastic ambitious people who really want to push their careers. Great for a safe secure environment, people with families, but possibly not for someone looking for big investment/big reward.
    Average salaries

    Advice to Management

    Stay open to new ideas and possibility for personal career growth
    Invest more in skilled personnel to encourage junior members in the team to improve, learn and stay motivated.

    Senior Brand Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Frontier Developments (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    It was all very straightforward, however the marketing director was 15 minutes late for the interview leaving only 45 minutes for the meeting. It was all very rushed.

    Afterwards, she said she would like to get me in again to meet the team, however I got a phone call a couple of weeks later saying they wanted someone with a bit more experience.
