    „A Company in a Transitional Period”

    Pros

    - Dev teams are made up of mostly good people that are passionate about making the best games possible

    - Studio has a culture of playtesting and sharing feedback

    - Learning opportunity to work with a large team on the biggest AAA franchise around

    - New studio head has more trust from people on the ground. There's a lot of work to do to reform studio culture, but I think he's pushing in the right directions.

    Kontras

    - Industry low pay for the area, underwhelming bonuses

    - No company pride; people bond/gossip over their mistrust of HR/Recruiting/Leadership/Activision as there is little transparency. There is often a discrepancy between our stated company values and our daily practices.

    - Contract system is predatory. Many contract employees are strong contributors, but are kept on contracts for 1-2 years and then let go.

    - Staffing per department is inconsistent and teams generally run lean due to headcount limitations; some teams have very bad crunch while others have more manageable schedules. Crunch is never "mandatory" but it's pressured by the culture, which creates the same result.

    - Management has scoping issues, which caused us to ship a buggy game with broken features and damage the company reputation. Constant content updates create a myopic mentality of cramming in changes at the very last minute rather than focusing on stability.

    - Philosophy of downsizing after every project and reloading for the next game limits ability of company to retain talent in order to make the leap from making 80% games to 90% games.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2014 bei Sledgehammer Games (Foster City, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    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.

    Fragen im Vorstellungsgespräch

    • 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?   Frage beantworten
