Pros

Some of the best, most talented people around. Comparatively decent work/life balance.

Cons

Corporate overlords add unnecessary anxiety to the company, but don't detract as badly as at other larger places.

Advice to Management

Diversify. MMOs are a dying breed. Start a mobile team and experiment.

    "Love Cryptic"

    Pros

    Great group of guys and very nice environment. They have been good about not crunching us too much. It is nice sized in that it is small enough to still have a big impact but large enough to be stable and have a few perks.

    Cons

    The only reason I left Cryptic was because I could get more money elsewhere. I still miss working at Cryptic and if they could pay more I would probably go back.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Cryptic Studios (More than a year)

    Pros

    My experience at Cryptic has been almost exclusively positive. Management is receptive to feedback and most of the employees have a very strong team-oriented attitude. I see little of the workplace drama that I've experienced at many other companies. Much less mandatory overtime than many other game developers.

    Cons

    Not enough staff for the QA department. Like many other companies in the industry, QA has few advancement options unless they leave the department - and not everyone can get that opportunity.
