    I worked at Chromatic Games full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really great artists and smart people

    Cons

    I don’t trust management they fired all the minorities right after they launched and it doesn’t look good. The pay wasn’t great but the bonus was going to help, I guess we don’t get that either.

    Pros

    Positive work environment, Fairly flat structure means good agency over the work you're doing, very good incentives including profit sharing

    Cons

    Indie means you'll be doing a certain amount of learning on the job. I personally like it, some people dont.

    I have been working at Chromatic Games full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Amazing Team! Chromatic has wonderful programmers, exceptional artists, thoughtful and talented designers, insane technical artists, etc. The talent level of the team and their ability to get high quality work done in relatively short amounts of time is an outlier of excellence in this industry. The benefits are pretty decent as well: Equity for employees Profit sharing for employees Ample PTO Medical/Dental/etc.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains from the transition, but it's nothing that won't get sorted out with time.

    I have been working at Chromatic Games full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's such a great work environment; diversity can be inhaled in the the air and everyone's opinion is not only welcomed but listened to. The studio operates as a unified team rather than separate islands. We even work together in an open floor plan to keep our bonds strong! The sum of our unique personal skills and talents makes us powerful as a whole. Again, nothing beats having a great company culture

    Cons

    Trying hard to think of something. I'll have to come back when something pops up.

    I have been working at Chromatic Games full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    From day one I have loved working here. My team lead respects my work and my opinion. I get great critical feedback on my work which is highly constructive. I have always felt included and valued by everyone on the team. The people that work here LOVE what they do and get along with each other in a very seamless manner. Before starting at the company I was a little nervous given the other reviews here on Glassdoor but I can truthfully say, this is not the same company you read about with all of the baggage in the other reviews. Pretty much all of that team is gone and I am proud to be a part of Trendy Ent!

    Cons

    The typical hours are 11am-8pm and can get a little crazy before milestone deadlines. I prefer a typical 9-5 but, that is a sacrifice I am willing to pay to have a job I truly enjoy.
