    I worked at Crytek full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good salaries for Germany standard but, low compared to the industry standard
    - Lots of fun people
    - Talented artistic and tech team, although many are leaving or planning on leaving this year
    - The location of the studio in Frankfurt is convenient. near public transport
    - The Yerlis are recently making a real effort to talk with their staff. thank you!
    - CryEngine

    Cons

    - Work hard and get no raise nor bonuses and promotions do not mean raises !
    - Politics, politics, politics! Crytek is a place where you can “talk” your way up.
    - People are afraid of telling the Yerlis what is really happening, although lately people are slowly opening to them.
    - Cancellation of many games.
    - No clear direction from the director, still after what Crytek went through.
    - several late payments without notice
    - In some areas, the air quality is very very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful with promotions. Putting the wrong people in high positions can only rock the boat

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Crytek in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was cool, very excited. I knew these before from an older company. So we already had trust in each other and what I could offer to the company. It was very relaxed and confident on both sides.
