Very laid back, everything is done really slow (this is a pro for foreign people if you want to retire)
Great location just outside of Amsterdam
Good support for foreigners
Zero games knowledge. People are not passionate about games
Reputation of cloning, building uninspired games, based on "proven concepts". End result is always a compromise.
Failing is never ok. Taking risks is never ok. Sitting in meetings 8 hours per day is.
Extreme politics are a daily chore. 10,000 people companies don't have this much politics.
Advice to Management
Don't keep people on your management team just because they're too expensive to fire.
A good employee is the one that does his job well, not the one that tells you greatest stories
I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Spil Games in July 2016.
Process took 15 days. I had 2 skype interviews. First was with Product Manager Lead and the second was with 2 other members of the team. Instead of a "Senior" role, they wanted to offer me "Junior" role due to my experience, however the salary range was not enough according to Netherlands immigrant rules for Non EU citizens. They explained the reasons behind their choice and HR was really nice during the whole process.
