    I have been working at Sledgehammer Games full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    With the change of leadership it feels like teams have been given more creative control over their work. This has made working at sledge a much more enjoyable place. They are also taking transparency to heart and letting the team know what is happening at a higher level. Even if it isn’t always good news. This does a lot to give us facts and not circulate rumors on the floor.

    Cons

    We have lost a lot of great talent due to the change of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent and open

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sledgehammer Games (Foster City, CA (US)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I contacted the recruiter at that time on LinkedIn, expressing my interest and showed my portfolio. The recruiter sent me an art test. The art test was fast, and I did lose sleep.

    Next I had a phone interview with an HR person, then a Skype interview with my lead. He pointed out some areas of the art test that could be improved. I made the improvements and resubmitted.

    Then I had a Skype marathon interview with 4 groups of 2-3 people, which in total lasted 2-3 hours. After that I received a job offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain your workflow on creating the art test.
      What would be your favorite thing to model?
      How would you go about creating a realistic asset without photo reference?   Answer Question
