ConsLong hours during crunch time.
Advice to ManagementTest and lock down levels and features earlier to avoid last minute changes and re-work.
I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Naughty Dog (United States) in Oct 2022
InterviewThe first two interviews consisted of generic interview questions about video games and work history. The 3rd interview had applicants play a video game while the interview team watched. I was initially contacted one month after applying, and each interview happened roughly 3 weeks apart, so it was a long process. The staff who conducted the interview were really nice! I did not receive an offer though, and I was fairly overqualified for the position. It seemed like there were a ton of applicants, so it's probably pretty competitive.
