    I worked at Gameloft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Colleagues are friendly Casual dress Looks good on your resume Probably good for artists, not for programmers

    Cons

    I had these reviews before starting and didn't think much of it. The culture becomes toxic and they will take from you every ounce of drive and then leave you out to dry when you require are struggling. Management is clueless that people are actually people and not machines. The project's aren't interesting and there is a lot of micromanagement High turn over rate as people are figuring this out.... Excessive overtime In one breath they say its all about values, culture and balance and then in another heavily imply you need to commit to overtime, as if you don't have a choice and your ability comes into question if you leave even after working an extra hour.

    Advice to Management

    Churning out staff will only get you so far in Brisbane before you run out of people that made it what it is. The place is going further down hill and I don't see the place remaining open for much longer as Gameloft as a whole is failing.

    I have been working at Gameloft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nice company to work, good benefit, opportunity to learn & grow, good colleagues. Good work-live balance for artist with almost 0 overtime. Good company to have in your resume. Fair objective, evaluation & career growth. No politics!

    Cons

    Not clear project plan for the studio, so the lay off or recruitment is based on the project's availability and needs. The current building for 7 years is a disaster and the action company take is too slow.

    Advice to Management

    Project deployment for studio need to be more clear. Local TM could be more persuasive to be more independent.
