    I have been working at Voodoo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At Voodoo, you work in a healthy and caring atmosphere which is very important to help you develop your skills, career and personality ! If you don't have enough experiences, you can learn and improve your skills anytime. You can also discover new professions, new languages and cultures! I really love Voodoo for it all (and of course because the salary is very competitive).

    Cons

    I've worked in several large companies and I can't see any real inconvenience at Voodoo

    Pros

    I rarely write reviews but I must say that Voodoo is a great company to work for. One thing I wanted to highlight which I found is rare these days: the company sets you up for success - I appreciate having full ownership of projects which develops strong self confidence and the team dynamic.

    Cons

    Team growing super quickly so I hope we will be able to keep current culture, and team dynamic.

    I have been working at Voodoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Voodoo is a really cool place to work. As an employee, I'm feeling listened by my team and my manager. Work hours are flexible, trust and communication are keys. The processes are transparent and we can share freely and openly what we think about everything regarding projects.

    Cons

    As part of a new team, it's sometimes very challenging and stressful to work in a short amount of time. But I know it will be improved, it's just a matter of time.

    Voodoo Response

    Head of Talent Acquisition

    Thanks for your feedback! We're pleased that you're enjoying your experience at Voodoo! It's very important to feel listened to by your teams and managers - as communication and feedback are crucial to our principles. We pay attention to improve our daily communication by using new tools like Lattice that enables us to get regular feedback, 1-1s with your manager, and praise any colleagues for their collaboration! Transparency is key to be sure that you will understand the company's ambitions and involve all employees to participate in Voodoo's growth. Since we are currently working remotely, we hold weekly online global meetings with "ask me anything" sessions in which you can anonymously share any questions you might have. All newcomers have a customized onboarding program to make sure you succeed in your new role. A dedicated onboarding officer is indeed in charge of welcoming you and providing you with a fast-track understanding of the company. A dedicated buddy is also available to help you throughout your onboarding process. You'll also get written support and a dedicated coach within your team! Best of luck in your journey!

    I have been working at Voodoo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazing salary and benefits. - Absolutely freedom and ownership to create games that the teams think that have potential to become hits. - Small team sizes. - Opportunity to take courses payed by the company (related to your job). - Very few HR / Management stuff.

    Cons

    - Deliver, deliver and deliver. There is so much pressure on delivering fast that often the quality is affected. - Games tested that don't show promising KPI are discarded without knowing the issues it had, so no learnings are taken from them. - No studio feeling, no sharing, the valuable information is often hard to find. - Feedback to HR / Management is heard but not actions taken. - There is no QA.

    I have been working at Voodoo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work is exciting! Lots of new projects all the time. Helpfulness, and I would even say kindness of the people is really appreciable. Also, transparency at employee level is great, we have access to a lot of information about the company, it makes me fill trustworthy. Not mentioning top-salary and benefits policy!

    Cons

    Ownership and autonomy is something you definitely experience at Voodoo. The downside of it is that frustration can occur after you discover overlap between teams/individuals side-projects. Good communication is key to avoid those situations, and we are getting better on this. We are also hiring more senior positions which will help us to extend our skills.
