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

    Pros

    Great people and culture. The place is fun to work at and you are fully empowered to develop your career in the way it suits you best. At the same time you are working with some of the sharpest people in the industry, that have managed to build a game played by more than 100M people.

    Cons

    It's a one game company and some people might think the company's outlook is not that great and I expected the company to release more games. However, given the industry state, I feel like being patient is not necessarily a bad decision.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Nordeus full-time

    Pros

    - great culture and perks
    - great workspace
    - overall enthusiasm
    - the product is really good

    Cons

    - huge differences between teams, one team can really be doing great while the other is super slow and with no vision
    - no real idea for mid and senior career development
    - pretty big turnaround of the staff
    - after almost a decade there's only 1 game that's left the studio; the other one did so bad no one ever talks about it; current project was announced to be launched years ago which still didn't happen - one would wonder if the original success was just some good timing + luck and can't really be repeated since there sure were attempts
    - getting feedback is a matter of luck; some managers are really good at that while the others will be striving to be buddies with everyone and not pointing out mistakes until they pile up - this is a very, very serious issue

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic with yourself and with the employees. Talking how everything is amazing all the time while no one can see the results is pointless and can only last for so long. I would bet that's one of the main reasons that people who relocate there stay no longer than a year or so. Top Eleven won't live forever.

    I have been working at Nordeus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Having fun most of the time.
    Sure, it's not always easy, because making great games is not easy (obviously :)), but at the end of the day you are surrounded by people who come every day to the office and do their best to achieve the amazing things together. And it's been fun, for years.

    Cons

    There are so many great people in the company and there is no enough time to meet them all well, which would be awesome

    Advice to Management

    Keep learning and caring about your people

    Pros

    Nordeus is all about people - employees are chosen super carefully and wisely. Teams are full of smart and happy individuals - who together make great stuff. It's all about team work - so there is no ME here in Nordeus, it's only WE.

    Cons

    We play hard, but we also work hard. If you are not willing to stretch yourself and give your maximum, better not try to fit in :)

    Advice to Management

    As long as the mood is GOOD, we will rock :) super strong team-spirit is our advantage, it makes that 1+1 become 3. Nurture that in company and we'll be closer to our goals.

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

    Pros

    - Independent company, so we are able to do things our way and try new things
    - Cool projects - leadership isn't afraid to take risks
    - Making a real difference in the community - investing time and money to making Belgrade and the region better... it feels good to be part of something bigger than work
    - No politics
    - Access to leadership - the Leadership team is in meetings, eating lunch with people, always available and approachable.
    - The focus on employee experience is amazing - there are so many cool things we do... from world-class onsite trainings, to being able to pick the tech I need for my job or champagne breakfasts and our week-long company team building (last year's was in Italy!), there are so many things that make me happy
    - It's a really diverse set of people with different backgrounds from all over the world
    - Support for expats is top-notch. Relocating anywhere can be stressful, but there is a team that literally handles everything. You feel completely supported and like you're part of the family right away.

    Cons

    - The food is too good - now I'm on a diet!

    I worked at Nordeus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great culture, friendly and open
    - lots of talented people
    - caring about employees and family (from basics like amazing food in office and good medical insurance and to unlimited vacations, and even covering your car wash!).
    - Caring about community around (like donating a LOT to healthcare)

    Cons

    - company is quite slow in developing new products

    Advice to Management

    1. You know it yourself better, that is why you created such a great company.
    2. If you really want to change situation with new products, it may require get out of the zone of comfort for top management. No, investing lot of efforts and money is not out of your zone of comfort.
