    Great culture.

    Pros

    I feel the team @ R* is very welcoming, the vibe and energy is overwhelmingly positive— many of the members of R* have been there for well over a decade. As a new hire, they still go above & beyond to make you feel apart of the family. From management to the core team each person has been very helpful answering questions and onboarding. They each work closely together and communicate flawlessly — being surrounded by so many passionate people you feel the need to deliver your best work.

    Cons

    Only downside thus far is, since spending so much time working in the world of R* it’s difficult to go back to casually playing GTA/RDR etc.

    Pros

    * The people are great, both at their jobs and just as people. * You're working on games that are beloved by all (or highly anticipated) * You can learn a lot from veterans that have been there 15+ years

    Cons

    * In such a large, established studio, things are done a certain way and you have to conform to that, for good or ill. * There is a lot of "red tape" involved with a lot of changes where multiple people from multiple departments have to sign off on things before any work can get done. As a result it can take weeks or months to begin work on a new feature, or you start work and then have to pause for a while after discovering more people need to be roped in.

    Pros

    You get to work on cutting edge video game technology with some of the brightest minds in the space.

    Cons

    You will be asked a lot, expect a lot, and need to deliver to move up. Not for someone who isn't passionate and willing to put their job first.

    Toxic, Terrible Culture

    Pros

    The name looks good on your resume

    Cons

    Toxic and sexist work culture. Everyone is more concerned with making sure they don't get blamed for their bad behavior that no one focuses on the business. Bringing up toxic situations to HR is a good way to get fired.
