I have been working at Gameloft full-time

Pros

All my colleagues were great, but I would often come to the office and find out that my software licenses have expired. So I would have nothing to do for days ( so far so good right - except I had to work straight through weekends and nights to compensate ). So after a few cycles of this they would cancel the game or try to do something else.

Cons

Steer clear - I think this is the Enron of video game companies.

Advice to Management

Find something else to do.

    I worked at Gameloft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good compensation; not the highest payer but they do give ample.
    - Good stuff that you can do like future consoles, mobile phones. etc.

    Cons

    If you think Team Bondi scandal is the sole case within the game development industry, you're absolutely wrong. It's no different in Gameloft.

    - Zero local organization

    - Intentional impossible to meet deadlines just to make you feel more pressured when you're pass your deadline and it'll look bad on your resume.

    - Unrewarded efforts and all.

    - Senior management doesn't help at all. What's worse is that some senior management are really incompetent in the game development industry world as most of them didn't start as developers themselves but are just competent in speaking and writing in English and French.

    Advice to Management

    Hire HQ producers who are actually knowledgeable in game development and has experience first hand as an artist or programmer or QA and not just because they can communicate in english and in french.
