I have been working at Epic Games full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I haven't been here too long but I've loved it so far. I'm continually impressed by my fellow employees and the teamwork that exists here. The culture is one of hard work and going above and beyond in all aspects, which works well when everyone is ascribing to that ethos. Management is very involved and very knowledgeable with a very clear vision.

Cons

I haven't had many cons yet. Very long hours, even outside of crunch. While it's not mandated you work more than 40 hours, the minimum I see people working is 50 to 60. So there's social pressure to stay longer. But then the workplace is very fun so it doesn't feel like a 50 hour week either..

Management is relatively flat, giving great opportunity for driven people to excel and learn many new skills. Upper management is incredibly transparent.

    Sometimes its stressful to make games. You might have to do the work of two or three people.

    I have been working at Epic Games full-time

    Pros

    The offices are great, both in Seattle and in Cary. The perks are awesome. You get to work with some really brilliant people on interesting things.

    Cons

    Communication could be better, especially between offices. Supposedly crunch is an issue for some teams, though it has not been for me.
