    Good pay, horrible company

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, mostly good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management is jaw-droppingly inept. The people in charge have very little understanding of how games are designed and developed. They struck success with Payday, and now they think they can do no wrong. Rather than listening to the people they hire, they simply nod their heads and conveniently "forget" their employees suggestions. This will eventually get Starbreeze into big trouble.

    Pros

    Great collegues Nice office Free beers one friday a month Friendly and nice HR

    Cons

    - Money that could been my yearly increase in salary seemed to get spent on VR-theme parks in Dubai and such. - Several projects failed due to bad management (old CEO is one example). - Bad planning and structure of projects (might be better now) - Not very clear hierarchy or teamwork - Not very transparent. Most likely due to that the company beeing on the stockmarket
