    Je travaille chez CD PROJEKT RED à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    +Great, talented and hard-working people from all over the world.

    + Good for CV, people outside of industry are impressed to hear of someone working there.

    + Good pay for locals. Ex-pats get some bonuses to match western paychecks.

    + Cheery atmosphere on the work floors, people bringing snacks from trips, jokes etc. Active off-topic channels.

    + Free Gym, with a qualified trainer and a Multi-Sport card if someone wants to go swimming etc. to other places in the city.

    + Multiple lunch options: Sandwiches in the morning, breakfasts, vending machines, We have a vegan canteen and a REGULAR one just next to it. Food trucks on daily rotation if someone wants something different. No one goes hungry in CDP building.

    + Very cool parties organized by HR.

    + 20-26 paid leave days...

    Inconvénients

    - ...but often trouble to find time for vacation.

    - Crunches for years. People staying for 10-12h/day and coming in on weekends, just so they can meet the required dates. And that's not during approved crunch.
    During "real" crunches some people tend to stay till 2 or 4 am, then show up next morning to do the same. After some time, the project is redesigned and a lot of effort goes into the bin, while new deadlines and design decisions make people shake their heads.
    Might be good for the game, but holy crap - where's the prototypes and preproduction?

    - Lack of decisions. Often we show multiple approaches, get some critique and go back to the drawing board without clear direction.
    Sometimes the critique is: "Make it cooler" or "Oh, I like this idea, can we implement this as a new system".
    People are scared to be creative, as someone from the management might see a feature and wish it to be implemented into the game, without giving more time to do so.

    - Lack of pro-active HR. You really have to have a breakdown or turn into a fish for someone to notice and set up a quick meeting. Promises of keeping an eye out are just promises.

    - Multiple leads changes in a short time.

    - As Seniors and Leads disappear, plan is to replace them with 2-3 Juniors, expecting them to do the same job. Can't really complain as i suspect that's how i got in, thrown into deep water [good exercise though].

    Conseils à la direction

    Have a vision. One vision. At least when deep into production.

    If you hire people for their specialties, let them do just that. Trust your Seniors. I know we all want to make the best possible games, but throwing away hundreds of hours of work while setting milestones every 2 weeks leaves the work folk angry and tired.

    Why are people who worked with the upper floors coming back either resigned and sad, or not coming back at all?
    Can't say i had any first hand experience, but seeing close co-workers so miserable at times really hurts.

    We're all just people, and seeing that "the way it works now gives results, so no need to change" isn't healthy.
    Soon no-one will want to work there. We make great games, but at a greater cost.

    Pyramids are beautiful to look at, a real monument of what can humans achieve when working together, but no one wants to take part in building them, right?

    J'ai travaillé chez CD PROJEKT RED en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    the staff were enthusiastic

    Inconvénients

    Everything from the managment to the staff not know what a Table top RPG is supposed to be.They seem to be too focused on simplifing the experience rather than elucidating the groundworks of a RPG system and redefining by adding more depth and complexities it.

    Conseils à la direction

    Perhaps if they start focusing on creating a RPG rather than a glorified action adventure game with a worthless perk based progession system and create a new RPG from the ground up, maybe then they'll start earning there namesake as the 'industry leader on creating RPG's' ideology

    free gym

    Inconvénients

    even for polish salaries they are paying pennies.
    upper management is fighting constantly, you dare to point anything to Adam Badowski he will bully you or fire in the soonest possible occasion. Adam thinks he is infallible.
    Not a world class experience, chaos!
    Goals keep changing
    poor pay even if you compare polish IT sector!
    If you can work as robot it's for you ;-)

    Conseils à la direction

    Get rid of Adam Badowski!

    Avantages

    All I have to say here is that a lot if not all of these reviews below are fake. We often talked to our staff and made sure they are perfectly happy working there. If anything was missing, we'd make sure we had a plan to atleast implement it.
    I no longer work there simply because I got too stressed, and I will never work anywhere if it's stressful, even if it is my dream job. I hate stress.

    Inconvénients

    This website is a con.

    Je travaille chez CD PROJEKT RED à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Flexible work hours (better than any other studio I have seen)
    - Paid Crunch (First studio I have ever seen that in)
    - Crunch is generally not a thing unless given the green light to do so.
    - Vegetarian Canteen (Because it's nice to see people so mad about it, even though it's pretty good and thousands of other options are available. Meat eater myself, eating some veggies never hurt anyone)

    - Friendly and talented colleagues.
    - Common sense about creating something next gen and cutting edge, always.
    - Clearly positive changes from previous productions.
    - The usual social gatherings, parties, etc.
    - High salary compared to other jobs in Poland
    - Higher living standard than any other game studio I have worked at.
    - Higher net amount of money after taxes than any other studio even though they paid more gross.

    - Living expenses cut in half! compared to most other countries.
    - High and good expectations of deliveries and end-product.
    - Serious and compact production pipeline.

    Inconvénients

    - Serious and compact production pipeline, with a slight confusion and feeling of changes coming in without being properly informed.

    - Top creative manage reacts when negative feedback and critique is given, but is often responded to with a public release which is either a bad excuse or stating the claims are wrong instead of actually listening.

    - Top creative management extremely busy.
    - Vegetarian canteen, because? That is apparently the only proof of me being a legit employee at CDPR?

    Conseils à la direction

    - Please don't say you listen, if you actually don't.

    - We are all in this together, nothing good ever came out of a one-man show with just one vision.

    - Remember that the only critique you should listen to is that of current and former employees. Spending time on critique from people who don't work in games or public internet figures and responding to them at all isn't providing you with a good image and can appear slightly childish, regardless of how childish the critique may also be.

    - Last minute changes will make you seem indecisive.
    - Listen to the employees for their feedback on all game elements, after all they are professional developers and gamers too.
