    Pros

    - Respectful team - Considerate management - An abundance of passion - Lots of team building events, such as parties, sports groups, etc. - Transparent -- anyone could find out and learn about almost anything - Achievements beyond expectations are recognized and rewarded - They've figured out how to make live-service development pleasant and avoid many of the usual issues - Lots of different lunch groups -- everyone likes to make you feel like you belong - Lots of interdepartmental conversation -- both social and professional - Lots of interaction between the different Respawn game teams - Constant playtesting, including "Friday Night Fights" where I always had a fun time - Plenty of growth opportunities - Access to EA's massive network of developers, information, tools, etc. Want to learn how Battlefield did that cool thing? You can ask the person who did it. - Management is very receptive to change.

    Cons

    - Personal project policy is very restrictive. - Despite team sizes being relatively small, it can sometimes feel more "big stable game company" than "small exciting game company."

    Pros

    Great place to work as a designer, lots of autonomy and there’s not much crunch expected especially compared to my previous studios

    Cons

    Not many downsides, one of the best places to work in the industry

    Pros

    I've been at Respawn since near the beginning, and can't imagine working with any other group of people or anywhere else. It's a hard industry to find a place that has the people, values and culture you'd want, but they do. Respawn is group of incredibly talented people who love making games and want to make the best games possible. There's a high level of collaboration and mutual respect, as well as years (and years and years) of experience. Everyone is encouraged to be involved in the entire project, and contributions are recognized and rewarded. A lot is expected from the employees, but this results significant autonomy and the ability to add your own personal style and flare. Respawn also has a strong non-work culture with all sorts of friendly extra-curricular activities and are very supportive of families.

    Cons

    There's very little opportunity for traditional career advancement - if your goal is to come in and climb the ladder it may be difficult as there are a lot of people with a lot of experience and very low turnover. The flip side is that the experience working with those people will give invaluable skills and insight. Scheduling and project management can also be improved (though the problems appear to be recognized and are being addressed).
