    Pros

    Their were a lot of good people here. Decent work life balance Has good places to eat across the street,

    Kontras

    Pay is less then other companies Poor developer to publisher relations Prone to yearly layoffs No bonuses Very little room for advancement Entrenched management so no upward mobility

    Rat an das Management

    RPG's are what you are good at. Make them. Don't branch out into genres you know nothing about. Avoid rampant growth. The company is a bubble that keeps bursting over and over again.

    Pros

    A great place to work and they really care about the employees.

    Kontras

    There's honestly not too many things that I had a problem with there. Definitely enjoyed it!

    Rat an das Management

    Spend more time developing employees, but this was in the past and it seems like things have changed.

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

    Pros

    This studio breathes passion and friendliness. When you speak with developers who have just come through the doors to those who have been here for years, they are care. They care about what they do on a day to day basis, to the impact their jobs have to the games they produce, everyone here puts their heart and soul into the project, no matter how crappy the project is the team spirit is there. Everyone on the management...

    Kontras

    Only major downsides that come to mind is that 3 weeks of vacation does not kick in until 5 years, whereas most studios are 2. But the studio can be flexible and work with each persons situation and they close to studio towards the end of the year which gives ample family visiting and travel time, which is so great.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue to stay open-door with all your developers, we appreciate you for it. Thank you for treating everyone equally and representing our voice when we need it. The studio you built has been home for so many, old and new, past and present, and for returning developers.

    Pros

    Friendly, understanding and accommodating work place. Everyone loves their job and wants to see their respective projects succeed. Meetings are informative.

    Kontras

    Things get lost between teams, and for someone who is new to the company it can be difficulty to know where to go or who to turn to for more information regarding hiccups in the process.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Obsidian Entertainment (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, and I have yet to experience any extreme crunch. The owners are all very nice people, and they give plenty of vacation time around the holidays.

    Kontras

    A little stressful at times due to deadlines, but nothing extreme. That's something you'll find at any game company. I also wish I had negotiated a little more for a higher salary, since I'm a bit underpaid for the average at my experience level. I do wish we got a little more sick time, too. It's pretty standard for the U.S., but I know that some people had to take vacation time or go unpaid when they get really sick...

    Rat an das Management

    Management is very down to earth and approachable, which is much appreciated. My only suggestion would be a little higher flexibility with paid off time -- I personally think I'd be a much more efficient worker if I had more time to relax during the lulls in a project.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Obsidian Entertainment (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The head guys are very open and honest regarding the company's health. The developers are friendly. They pay about average. The studio is across from plenty of dining/shopping/etc. but its very expensive to live nearby.

    Kontras

    They were really struggling when I was there, working on bad projects from no-name or foreign publishers. They are basically desperate to work for anyone to keep the lights on. Hopefully, Project Eternity (their own IP) will put them on solid footing again.

    Rat an das Management

    Move. Irvine is lame and too expensive, especially that premium spot across The Spectrum.

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei Obsidian Entertainment als Vollzeit

    Pros

    Great company culture. Casual work environment. Employees are passionate all the way up to the top levels. Management works hard. Employees know their fields.

    Kontras

    In my experience, Obsidian seems to be routinely pushed around by the publishers they work with. This leads to rushed launches and, in some cases, making implementing poor designs because of the publisher's whims.

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

    Pros

    -This is a great place to work if you are new to the industry, as they have a tendency to hire a lot of interns. -You get to work with quite a lot of fun and interesting people, you will have people on your team that you will later add to your personal friends circle. -HR manager and front desk are two of the sweetest people in the building, you will LOVE them! -Recruiting manager is super friendly, and will...

    Kontras

    -If you aren't a senior, be prepared to be treated and paid like a junior. -Large layoffs are inevitable when projects end or get cancelled, always be prepared. (Happens at many companies, this one is not immune) -Lots of crunch time (unless you LOVE working 12 hour days towards milestone end and/or project end....then I guess you can consider this a pro) -Project managers are hit and miss at this company, I've...

    Rat an das Management

    Shrink the gap between pay in Senior and Junior level salaries...currently the in between positions are being paid as juniors. Try to give reviews in a more timely manner. Before making a large layoff, try to consider team member skills...rather than choosing "who fits" and "who doesn't fit in" at the company. I've seen many extremely valuable team members be let go suddenly....then pick up higher paying jobs at larger...
