I have been working at Jagex full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fantastic people...I love my team, and ive made great friends here in a relatively short time.
Great benefits that resonate well with me and my friends.
Exciting work, its just cool working in the games industry and i love the status that gives me
Really cool office, especially since the canteen was set up as the food is brilliant and the staff great
Plenty of opportunities to develop and excel
A genuine company that tries to do the right thing
Great support when relocating to the area and a more friendly HR team than ive ever experienced

Cons

Growing very fast means a lot of change occurs regularly, but this isnt necessarily a bad thing as creates opportunities for people with the right attitude
There are a few v negative people here, many of them have been around for years and havnt worked anywhere else yet think they know everything and moan constantly about the new ideas being brought in by new blood. Their inflexibility is a sign of their inexperience in the real world and sometimes they can really irritate me / the new blood.

Advice to Management

better strategies around integrating new starters with the old guard could be useful, though not sure what sort of things? Might relieve a friction point?

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    - Benefits are decent
    - Cambridge is a wonderful place
    - HR is some of the best I've ever worked with
    - Most of the employees are very good people with refined skills

    Cons

    - Inability to trust upper management

       Word is not bond. Expect to be thrown around like an unwanted orphan child.

    - Split-second executive decisions

       Expect all work you do to be able to be canned and direction changed at any moment

    Joined with high hopes, continuously demolished them over time until I was but a limping obligatory worker

    Advice to Management

    Get one good idea and stick to it, rather than keep switching between ideas.

    Revolutionizing an industry is tougher than succeeding in it. Try the latter.

    I have been working at Jagex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great!! I am working with some of the most talented people I have ever met in my life. A vast majority of the people at Jagex are not only work colleagues but also friends in and out of work.

    Jagex is a very personable organisation and has a great employee benefits program including the softer benefits such as team fun funds, canteen, games room, bicycle repairs.

    They're also really keen to get involved in supporting local charities which is really important to me.

    Cons

    There is a small but vocal minority of people who always seem to focus on the negative side of anything for example we have great facilities here with a stunning office space yet they moan about the integrity of the hand towels in the toilets.
