    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Crytek full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The climate at Crytek is very special. It does feel like working with friends. Well, you won't find the "perfect" company. It just doesn't exist! But working at Crytek can be fun. They let you do your job. Never I had more freedom to be creative in my job. It was fun working at Crytek! I left because the salary issue they had and because my job was obsolete.

    Cons

    Communication was sometimes not very efficiant. Salaries are propably market rate, but low for Frankfurt area.
