    Life changing benefits! I plan on staying here a LONG time.

    Sep 18, 2022 - QA Tester 2 in Cary, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Full time employees have the best health insurance I've ever seen. If you only needed 1 reason to work here, it's this. Other benefits are competitive. - Culture here is inclusive and supportive. - Nobody bats an eye if you need to take PTO, like it SHOULD BE. - I like my team and feel like they care about me. We're all just trying to get our work done and live our lives. - I received an unexpectedly GENEROUS pay bump to account for inflation/whatever concerns this year.

    Cons

    - There's no "crunch", but QA has occasional OT. It's actually voluntary and rarely more than 2 hours extra per day, 3 days per 2 week cycle. I haven't seen anyone being forced to do it after talking to their lead though, MGMT seems genuinely interested in avoiding burnout. Just be aware it exists. - Remote work is great but if you're not in select states, you may be expected to move before promotion.

    Best Place to work, period!

    Dec 1, 2022 - Software Developer in Cary, NC

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Too many to list, just an amazing company that truly cares about its employees. One example being that their health care is bar none the best in the nation, you will never need to worry about your family's health and safety. Amazing vacation policies which provides a lot of flexibility and company-wide breaks. Great compensation, free food, snacks, etc... I have never felt more appreciate at a company.

    Cons

    Very fast moving company acquiring a lot of other companies and shifting priorities left and right. Navigating what is important week to week and be chaotic. Sometimes crunch is required.

    Fabulous pay and benefits, most employees are tremendously self-motivated.

    Weak leadership, too big

    Sep 19, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are incredible, they trap you there. Many of the original employees are still wonderful to work with and maintain the culture as best they can.

    Cons

    Got way too big without being prepared. Having to overhaul EVERYTHING. Leadership can't seem to make a decision on anything except revoking some benefits. Absolutely floundering on whether or not to go back to the office leaving everyone in limbo. Can't get anything done because the amount of approvals is insane with such a top heavy business. Most in leadership are new, did not promote from within so culture is no longer existent.

    Lacking Leadership

    Sep 1, 2022 - Producer in Cary, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are where the industry should be. Unreal engine is nice

    Cons

    Leadership lacks decision making. They want the employees to guess what Execs and Sr staff want then evaluate those decisions close to the release (within a week or two). This creates a continuous stream of fires to put out. Leadership does not understand the word plan. They think it's something you do on the spot in the heat of the moment. Lots of egos here. These folks literally think that Fortnite is a HIGH quality product with unique design breaking the boundaries for games.
