    I have been working at Unity Technologies (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been part of the Unity journey since the early days, and have seen the company grow beyond our wildest imaginations: this could and should merely have been a good-but-small software vendor, but through the really hard work of an ever increasing number of smart people, good luck, and some visionary turns by the leadership it's turned into one of the primary computing platforms, achieving dramatic leadership across the games industry.

    Coming around to my local office and visiting our other office I am always happy to meet incredibly clever and passionate people, most doing the best and most meaningful work of their lives. There's many of us now, yet very few jerks find a way to come around and fewer if any a way to stay and succeed.

    In the earlier days, the work and our mission to democratize game development was its own perk (but there were few others). Now the company treats us well across the board with competitive salaries and option packages, excellent flexibility and respect for the individual, and a healthy work-life balance for those who prefer it.

    Cons

    Few if any (and fewer than ever before).

    It can be a little hard to find your way around the company, but if you spend the effort you'll find yourself welcome after all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the openness and generosity, and don't let up... this company is going places and needs all hands on deck.

    Pros

    Great employee and customer focused culture.
    Great new office space.
    Employees empowered to do the right thing.
    Management that listen to the employees.

    Cons

    Sone group silos within parts of the company that need to be brought closer together especially as the company grows and products get integrated.

    Minimal process can sometimes hinder the product development

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain the company culture and values as you grow.
    More communication between the various parts of the business would bring benefit.

    Pros

    By far one of the best companies I've worked for! We not only have a great product that is cross industry but the culture here is really something else. Work life balance is very important to me and Unity is very flexible when it comes to this. Having 2 kids and juggling work life can be difficult but this company really does value this. Unity has offices all across the world and when you visit you can see that they've maintained their own unique identity.

    Cons

    Out-growing office space far to quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees empowered and don't become corporate! The company is growing very fast so continue to update us.

    I have been working at Unity Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + All the above and beyond perks (catered food, toll reimbursement, fitness stipend), even in locations like Seattle where no one else offers them
    + More holidays than anyone else
    + Amazing amount of freedom and autonomy - more than most startups
    + No weird peer pressure to work long hours like other tech companies
    + Very R+D focused, get to work on cool new things everyday
    + Get to be fairly involved in the gaming industry
    + Really feels like a family environment
    + Lots of travel

    Cons

    - Travel (if you don't like it) - usually important because of the global nature of the company
    - Communication is sometimes difficult for the same reason as above

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    I have been working at Unity Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Unity is one of the coolest companies I've ever worked for. I like how we support each other, discuss things and all in all the hierarchy is very low - at least here in Helsinki. The work itself is really interesting and it's great to be a part of a company that's growing fast and does exciting things. My colleagues are nice and experts in their field.

    Cons

    Well sometimes I feel that some managers from our other offices want to get involved in what we do locally a bit more than they should.

    I have been working at Unity Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great new office space in Copenhagen and efforts are being made to improve the environment at all times.
    Experienced engineers willing to share their time and knowledge.
    Excellent benefits.
    Great place to create new connections.
    Newest technology used in tools across departments.

    Cons

    Unity is still considered a startup and that can be seen sometimes in the ways of tackling processes and actions, however the culture is open and this helps in finding structured ways of dealing with processes.

    Advice to Management

    Support managers in their own training so they can pass their knowledge further.

    I have been working at Unity Technologies full-time

    Pros

    You will find a friendly atmosphere, they provide lot of employee benefits like transport & fitness. They allow you to take up your own responsibility & work accordingly. The best part is there is no micro-management by your seniors, so you can peacefully do your work.

    Cons

    There is no growth plan as of now. Hence, the professional ladder is like a straight line graph.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if there is a structured career graph for all

    Pros

    - great company culture
    - co-workers are really nice
    - employees are empowered

    Cons

    - company is getting too big and some decisions feel a bit "corporate"
    - no bonus scheme
    - not much knowledge sharing within the company

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring, take a step back and make sure everyone is still happy. Don't make assumptions.

    Thank you for your feedback. As you've witnessed we are growing quickly but always with the goal of implementing "just enough" structure to manage the growth but not get too corporate. Additionally ... More
