      Pros

      Very laid back, everything is done really slow (this is a pro for foreign people if you want to retire) Great location just outside of Amsterdam Good support for foreigners

      Cons

      Zero games knowledge. People are not passionate about games Reputation of cloning, building uninspired games, based on "proven concepts". End result is always a compromise. Failing is never ok. Taking risks is never ok. Sitting in meetings 8 hours per day is. Extreme politics are a daily chore. 10,000 people companies don't have this much politics.

      Out of touch management. Little morale building. Homogenous and non-existent corporate culture.

      Nice place, but very unstable

      Pros

      It's a very fun international environment full of awesome qualified people. Spil's employees make it worth the experience on a daily basis. General benefits are decent and it provides you a good work/life balance.

      Cons

      Company vision seems very unstable , there's not enough transparency and opportunity to growth is limited to certain business units and roles. Also, internal politics might limit your opportunities, despite of your qualifications and performance.

      Pros

      - International team of talent - Good coffee - Good example of what I do not want from current and future employers

      Cons

      - CEO is toxic, only knows how to manage by fear. Suffers from superiority complex. - Management team are just hand puppets of CEO. Pretty disgraceful to watch. - Highly politicized authoritarian environment - Employee loyalty is demanded but not shown to the staff in return. - Employees mostly distrusted

      Pros

      The working environment is great, full of young smart people. The company is open for innovations as long as you're willing to carry them through.

      Cons

      The company strategy is changing every 3 months and there is no open communication from management to the lower levels, which creates a lot of confusion.
