      Wooga dares to be different

      Pros

      The Games Industry is not a boys only club anymore and there is more to casual games than easy to learn mechanics. With its story driven focus and very diverse teams Wooga is a better place than ever for non-typical game developer craftsmen and women. As a women, mother and lead I get all the support I can wish for and get to work with amazing people to learn from.

      Cons

      Being part of the playtika universe means there is no start-up feeling anymore, for the better and worse.

      Sinking ship past its prime time

      Pros

      - social activities - work from home budget - educational budget - great initiatives for societal aspects

      Cons

      Prior to pandemic time, it had a good name for organizing educational events and social activities, however the strict everlasting lockdown takes away this skin while unveiling the real problems of management and failing strategic planning. Although the company has many great initiatives in societal aspects, it rarely addresses employees' real concerns including redundancy problems from failing projects, low salary, over-conservative new games design in the last three years, and meaningless dotted line people management without actual leadership. We receive feedback collection forms sent to us automatically every month, but none of our real concerns have been answered. Slowly it's pointless to fill that form. Smaller team doesn't get much support from central functions compared to larger team. Also, when business becomes uncertain, they treat redundant employees badly without respect, especially those that are under probation or contract. Lastly, we need to be extra careful in communication as the company promotes “smooth communication”. You need to prioritize the harmony on the surface even in the cost of efficiency or getting real work done. This year, so many people are leaving the company when many other game companies are booming. It's up to the management to do something about it. If you want to join this sinking ship, think twice.

      Pros

      - free gifts like bags, t-shirts, socks, cups - has wfh budget - good initiatives for society - good in company branding in social platforms

      Cons

      - very political - lack of recognition in work - being managed by unfit manager - lack of career development - you can see quite a lot of hypocrites in the company, those speaking loud in public channels but act very differently behind the camera or in person

      Pros

      I started working at Wooga this month remotely and everything has been great. My impression of the company so far, is the sharing by co-workers of the hacker mentality, that is, continuous improvement looking to deliver the best gaming experience possible for story-driven games. The level of detail is enormous and I really enjoy that dedication. * You can always express your ideas loudly, they are very interested in new ones. * People is approachable and always ready to help, there are just good vibes in the air. * The whole company is focused on achieving a common goal and teamwork is always present in each department. * Wooga is a very diverse company, in the sense of backgrounds, nationalities and also, there is a strong presence of women in highly technical roles which is a big plus in this vertical. *The onboarding process is very substantial, they make sure you feel comfortable before taking actual tasks. * There is a self-development budget in order to enhance or learn skills that are important for your role. * There is a perfect work-life balance, no one seems to be burned by the job. * You can choose your preferred tech equipment and device, which is a huge plus! * There is a library in the company with books about specialized matters, on-going learning is crucial in this vertical. *There was even a productivity budget during corona times to set up a proper working space at home, hugely appreciated by everyone.

      Cons

      I don't see any cons.
