- 5.0Aug 29, 2021Junior 3D-ArtistCurrent Employee, less than 1 year
My experience with Daedalic started as a 3D intern. I was paid a more than fair wage for this position and the experience I gained was invaluable. My art lead really took the time to get me accommodated to the systems and software I would be using, and always showed great enthusiasm and encouragement with my work. I have had refreshingly honest and warm interactions from everyone at all levels, including other artists, leads, project leads, HR and owners of the company. From my experience I have never been expected to work any over time, and those I have seen who worked over time voluntarily, were often given extra days off as a reward for their hard work. I have felt a great balance of guidance and freedom with my work which has helped me grow a lot in a short space of time. I never feel embarrassed to ask a question as the leads are always happy to share advice and information. An overall very warm, understanding and encouraging work place from a junior's perspective. A place I hope to be able to stay at a long time and people I can't wait to meet. I couldn't have asked for more for a first experience of the games industry.
With my experience only being remote due to the pandemic, it would have been nice to have more interactions with my colleagues, there has not been a lot of opportunities to learn from other people. However I don't feel like this is a fault of the company, and it is countered by the efficiency that they have ran everything else online. It would be nice to have a fully secure job, instead of extended contracts. However, that being said, the transparency and honesty about the reasons why this couldn't be granted are appreciated and understandable. Again I feel like this is something out of the companies control and not something they should be penalised for.

Fruits and vegetables twice a week. Free filtered and sparkled water. Free Beer on friday evenings. A very few nice people are still left
Salaries are low, like even that-you-know-the-industry-doesn't-pay-much low And to keep them low a salaray-system was introduced where the highest tier possible to achieve, is still low, but every argument is obsolete due to that system. If you're in sales/marketing or other near-CEO related fields, you'll have to deal with a lot of unpaid/unbalanced overhours and a lot of screaming and yelling by your ill-tempered bosses, which like to contradict eachother in separate briefings. If you're in production, your CEO doesn't know you and it feels like working for someone who lives and works abroad, besides some rare meetings where the screaming and a unprofessional prioritizing takes place. You have a lot of pressure and responsibility with no benefits, besides false hope, that one day it gets better (the only long-term reason for many to still work there) Flat hierachies here mean two bosses and not even a handful of 'important people' simply make every decision above the head of everyone else. Criticism is answered with 'termination of employment for operational reasons'. Old smelly, bureaus with little to no decoration or any effort to make you feel comfortable. Same goes for the workspaces.2

Great working atmosphere and workmates, quirky games, almost 50% female coworkers which is a rarity in the games industry. At my time there, industry newcomers could quickly become team leads if they had the talent.
At some teams, the crunch became regular. A lot of last-minute management decisions leading to big game parts being redesigned until the very end of production.1

Great colleagues, and a nice work environment. salary is ok. Could always be better. Game ideas are listened to when pitched.
- Old PCs - Not ergonomic workplace - Not paid for extra time - No bonuses Crunch A lot of unplanned worked because of bad planning.1
