    Pros

    It was a great company to work for with good benefits and family friendly the owners are great people.

    Cons

    CCP merged with R&R and things went down hill from there on both sides as I hear it. Some of the crew management and leaders started treating the crew in a less then professional way it degraded to childishness and there was a lot of personality conflicts. Unfortunately the owners couldn't discern who was in the right but I cant blame them. I'd like to go back if the personnel problems were resolved.

    Advice to Management

    If someone is blaming everyone else all the time it's probably their problem and not everyone else. You cant always trust people just because you've known them a long time

    Ok compensation for a students' summer job. In a big American city...? Not so much...

    Talk to your employees. Really. Sit down and REALLY talk to them, exchange ideas for improvement, issues...

    Burnt culture from a few waves of layoffs (and poor leadership in the past) still affects parts of the company

    Great effort in turning the company around.
    Don't be afraid to continue to push changes

    Pros

    The most talented core development team I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Lack of overall project vision led to years of wasted development and ultimate project cancellation.

    Advice to Management

    Hold senior management more accountable when projects fail to release on time.

    Pros

    Great work environemnt, free meals!

    Cons

    There's not much of listening to feedback. Every-time we come up to suggestions it gets ignored. The game is slowly getting less focused, while they keep trying to get into new projects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to feedback and your customers!

    I have been working at CCP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally laid back environment, and with a right manager there is ample room for professional development.

    Cons

    CCP is steadily losing ground to competitors. It is getting progressively harder to hire employees to work in Iceland, and the local talent is not enough to compensate the brain drain at all levels. So far the company was not able to replicate the runaway success of EVE Online, and the future is not looking bright.

    I worked at CCP full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    free lunch and company trip

    Cons

    Low pay. An ego-inflating, can't-look-himself-in-the-mirror CEO. Seriously, after so many layoffs in the past couple of years and stagnant revenue growth, why is the CEO still on the job? He would've been fired already if this were a public company. I guess the board is just as clueless.

    Advice to Management

    replace the CEO or sell the whole company
