    I worked at CD PROJEKT RED full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many great developers to work with

    Flexible work hours

    Cons

    Many teams are lead and/or directed by incompetent people who focus more on advancing their own career than shipping a good product.

    Developers are being fired if they speak up about their leads' incompetency.

    HR processes fail to solve any mismanagement issues, often leading to developers quitting their jobs.

    The upper management is rotten to the core and full of people skilled only in sucking up to the directors.

    Complete mess in terms of production leading to crunch all the time.

    Many leads and directors lie constantly, both to their teams and their leads. People exposing those lies are often forced to leave or are straight out fired.

    Many developers have been asked to put up positive reviews here to hide how things really are.

    Low salaries, even compared to what other gamedev companies in Warsaw pay.

    Your career can be frozen by your lead based on lies he spreads about you and there will be no one to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Survey your developers to get an idea on the scale of mismanagement that's going on on a daily basis and get rid of all the producers and/or directors indicated by the results.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CD PROJEKT RED (Warsaw (Poland)) in April 2012.

    Interview

    it was phone call after online application on company web site in internet, then it was classic one on one interview with recruiter. They ask for normal things like portfolio, former company and former projects in that company, then about software and skills. Absolutely default and normal. Easy. Office was far away from center, transport took an hour and half.

    Negotiation

    it was short and easy
