    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Obsidian Entertainment gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Some really talented, awesome people work there

    Kontras

    - Structural decision-making problems. They've been making the same types of games for 20 years, and still don't know how to run a project without crunch time. - Leads are not well-supported, nor are they trained in how to manage people. - No senior women, and women are not promoted to senior positions. For a company that touts itself as caring about diversity, and that makes games with female characters in... important roles, this is both ironic and as serious lack. - Lack of feedback and reviews, moving goal-posts for advancement. - Lack of clear art direction, depending on the project. Artistic quality is not valued by studio as a whole, so it depends on whether or not the lead of a particular project is any good. - Highly political work environment. The quality of the work you do is irrelevant to your leads and only appreciated by your peers.

    Rat an das Management

    Create a clear pipeline for advancement. Restructure reviews to leave less room for individual bias.

    Keine Meinung zum Geschäftsführer

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 5 Jahren bei Obsidian Entertainment (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Good place to cut your teeth as a junior entering the industry, or as a intermediate artist looking to grow. People who show initiative are often recognized and promoted. Mandatory "Crunch" is very rare.

    Kontras

    Scope of projects can spiral out of control due to failures at the production level (bad data fed to directors) or project directors with good data making delusional decisions.

    Rat an das Management

    More accountability is needed at the project director level when a project's scope is mismanaged.
