From alien perspective you’ll expect everything to support you to move to Poland. Lots of benefits in the office place (not applicable during COVID19)
If you’re not ready to dedicate all your time making video games13

You had the chance (hope it still can be) to find pleasant smart and professional people that with very diverse backgrounds. But expect them to leave soon or be pushed out. A really nice office, inside and out, brilliant gym, 2-3 inside canteens that have diversity in their menus. If you care about social events organized by the company, they are not bad at all. But the best experience you can get here is to see how not to treat people, how not to run a company, how not to do games; they are clueless and extremely arrogant. Also a good example of how to put infinite budget on creating an image for the company that they are the pick of the industry, when the reality inside is 100% the opposite.
Zero interest in people well being. Zero intention in treating people.. well like people. A management that is there only for personal benefits (oh they are what we mortals call rich ) and it's attracting only more of this kind. Minimal knowledge of creating games, irrelevant of much money they are poring in production they are still nowhere. If you are not a psychotic troubled person you have no chance of a career. Low pay compare to where they pretend to be in the industry; only very recent they have raised the salary and that is because every professional left and nobody wanna come, and yup no more bonus because why would you share it with the peasants. No vision for the projects. No vision for the company when we refer at video games. A culture of if you kiss soft parts of your boss you are good, if you show problems you are out.7

Opportunity to work on massive open world RPGs.
Engineering tasks might be quite boring due to the switch to UE.1

* A lot of highly professional people and kind - it's a pleasure to work with them * A lot of side activities - gym, yoga, basketball field and other similar types * Good campus infrastructure * It is visible that over time work environment became better
* management decisions leave to desire for better * new compensation policy is much more exclusive

Serviceable pay. Occasional use of executive suites.
Serviceable but not truely acceptable pay. Beratement from PM's. Knowledge that the executives take more vacation days than they are in the office. Knowledge that substance abuse is a driving factor of abusing treatment from executives and owners.2

Over the years I saw how the company has grown and wants to continue to grow. Good salary, good benefits, diversity. It’s a place where you can be yourself and with a good lead grow as an employee and a person. Their fight with crunch is genuine. After the transformation the process of creating games changed for the better by a LOT.
Everyone makes mistakes but CDPR tries really hard to learn from them and not repeat them so none. The most important thing is that if you see something “wrong “ you need to speak up. No one is all-knowing and sometimes someone else needs to tell them what is wrong.
