    I worked at Games Workshop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun, unbelievable benefits, always treated with respect, the people who work there are passionate and cool, they make it very easy to understand how to succeed and increase your income with the company.

    Cons

    The pay isn't amazing. They do give you all the tools you need to improve it, and the incredible benefits help a lot, but it can be a really slow build to get to a decent income. It's worth it if you are patient and passionate about the job.

    I worked at Games Workshop full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, fantastic benefits. That's it.

    Cons

    Management is full of deceitful people who set you up to fail. They will fire employees with very little reason, and will smile at you in the face while they stab you in the back. Do NOT trust any of the employees. It is a company built on the idea that if you are not a good fit, you are not worth keeping. They are obsessed with everything but work performance. If they don't deem you worthy of the Games Workshop name they will make up reasons to get rid of you. Wouldn't recommend working here to my worst enemy. Was a long time fan of their products, and now the very thought of anything with their company logo on it makes me sick to my stomach. DO NOT TAKE THIS JOB.

    I worked at Games Workshop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The creative people are amazing and develop product and books that I am proud to represent to my Trade Account stores.

    Cons

    Frustrating that management won’t allow enough time and resources for us to develop our trade accounts fully. When I was recruited, I was told that a primary responsibility was to work with small business owners (game stores) and develop the Trade Account relationship by helping them understand how to work with Games Workshop. That didn’t last. Some people who are supposed to be a part of the management team are afraid of some departments and won’t fight for what is right and what is best.
