I have been working at KingsIsle Entertainment as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The culture and attitude of KingsIsle is amazing. Everyone is really open to everything and there isn't anything that can't be brought up to management/upper management. They understand that people have lives outside of work and do everything to accommodate that.

Cons

Contract employees are contract for at least 1 year before even being considered for full-time. This consideration can take another 15 months. The pay is not livable.

Advice to Management

Remove the arbitrary 1 year minimum. Hire based on performance.

    Pros

    Great company culture, great fun days, individual teams are good, autonomy and trust with time management

    Cons

    Very poor pay, far below industry standard depending on what job role you're filling, and they keep contractors on for YEARS before finally hiring them. Their abuse of the independent contractor system is just awful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people and pay them what they're worth!!
