    I worked at Vicarious Visions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Great fun/work balance. Everyone is willing to help where needed. Overall a rewarding experience to get to work here

    Cons

    Communication between departments needs to be overhauled greatly. Miscommunication can be a huge downfall of a project and there were times I thought it may go that way.

    I worked at Vicarious Visions as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Vicarious Visions is a company that foremost values the quality of its products and its people. It doesn't take long working at the company to notice the way everyone treats one another, from the personal interactions to the email decorum, everyone regards each other as family. This goes for management as well, who go the extra mile for their employees and are extremely competent at their jobs.

    Cons

    I only had two gripes during my time at Vicarious Visions. The first was the pay. I can only speak personally for my position in Quality Assurance, but the pay did not make for a livable wage for a recent college grad burdened with student loans. The only other issue I had was with the location in Menands, which lacked local amenities however, this is soon to be a non-issue.

    Advice to Management

    The company does a great job of investing time and care into your talent, I would only advise to invest equally financially to maintain that talent. The investment will eventually payoff.

  3. "A great stepping stone for a career in the game industry."
