you will meet many artists and you can find a lot of friends
dirty politics, they constantly lie to their employees, they have no idea what they are doing and all they care about is to make a game and lie to public to sell the game and make money. no matter how hard you work in the studio at the end they will not appreciate you and this is not only my case but all my friends saying the same and if they could, they would have left he studio asap. I have heard people making jokes about different races and it was unbelievable to me and HR really doesn't do anything about it even though they talk about being an diverse studio but in reality they are just there to make money and doesn't matter how they are doing. Their recruiters scam people with lies to hire them. Do not expect any good bonus or good salary! all the money goes to the guys on the top. Everyone now knows that founders left the studio! they could not even stay there because of all the issues and even though they said on the news that they took a higher rule but reality is something else and time will tell.
you will probably enjoy working there for a year but my experience there shows after about 1 year to 16 months people start to get upset and realize the whole situation.
There are a lot of back stabbing and crappy politics and even if you work days and nights someone can flip you over and destroy everything you did for the studio! they even removed people from credit even if they left 1 week before the shipping! no matter how long you worked on their last game!
do yourself a favor and listen to the reviews here on glassdoor! all the negative credits are true. when I took the job there I didn't believe glassdoor but later I realized that all of these bad reviews are true. only 20 people on the top get treated well and the rest are just tools for them.
If you can get hired at sledge be sure that you can find better jobs and do not underestimate your skills and seek for a better opportunity if you want to stay positive and enjoy making real games.
they tell you that coming on weekends are not mandatory and almost over a year you will have to go to work every weekends and work overtime during the week otherwise they will start harassing you and find a reason to get rid of you! they tell you be open and discuss all the issues with us and if you do that they will start playing with you.
I have a lot more to say but it will take forever if want to talk about all the bs they had in their studio.
Advice to Management
Just treat everyone equal and stop harassing hard working people!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sledgehammer Games (Foster City, CA (US)) in September 2017.
Very unprofessional took weeks to set up in person interview. Sent out response emails and never got a reply. Interview process was easy. Being passionate for the position doesn't get the job.
