    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Ready At Dawn Studios als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    There are a lot great people at Ready at Dawn. Snacks and coffee are plentiful. They make really pretty looking games.

    Kontras

    There are also a lot of difficult people at Ready at Dawn that seems to take all the fun out of making games. There are folks there that have been there for 7-10 years and they don't have interest in collaborating with the new employees. Meetings are constant and overbearing and decisions aren't made quickly. This is why you see so many reviews here on long hours and crunch. They wait till the last minute to decide...

    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Ready At Dawn Studios als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    Great people, great work! Loved working there, the culture was awesome, the environment and office was great. Everything was pretty much perfect when crunch wasn't happening.

    Kontras

    Crunch happened, like it does in any video game company unfortunately. I understand that it's a fact of life, but that doesn't make daily 12 hour days + weekends any more fun. They did compensate well with free food and overtime pay though, so that was nice.

    Ich arbeite bei Ready At Dawn Studios (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The Studio allows you to grow and try new roles and challenges over the years (I.E. wear multiple hats). Ready is filled with passionate and very smart/talented individuals. Primary focus is on making great games (not a ton of drama). Many lessons were learned after the Order (Going from PSP to the PS4 was a harsh transition). Pod structures are now formed with directors just providing guidance which allows team members...

    Kontras

    Crunch and overtime still happen more than it should, but most of the time it can be minimized if you prioritize a work/life balance. It's also better than it used to be, many years ago. Directors often get attached to a concept/idea too early and stay fixated to it for too long (while it is still a con, I feel like they are getting better at listening to non-director feedback). Design team has been understaffed over...

    Continue to strive to improve communications. Make sure to solicit non-director feedback as often as possible. Try not to get too attached to ideas too early.

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Ready At Dawn Studios gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    ... Great studio for entry-level/go-getter type people. The studio facility is great, with wide open floors and natural sunlight. There are a few very talented people around in tech and art (they are getting less these days, though).The studio space is fairly new (2 yrs) and most of the tech and furniture setup are brand new with a smooth European-designed look. Management has a high bar for aesthetics and company presentation.

    Kontras

    They told the team to write positive reviews on Glassdoor, which should tell you a lot about the type of mentality coming from upper management. The studio is poised filled with dishonesty and has a heavy testosterone driving work culture. Best ideas always win? Unfortunately that's not the case here. During The Order 1886 the core team didn't want any team members to bring in ideas to the IP and its ongoing development....

    You're not as big of a dev. studio as you would like to be ... Your egos are in the way! Calm down, focus on the people you work with and value their input and ideas... Rethink your company philosophy! You make game not because you like to play games that your passionate about, but because you want to make money! Oh, and please realize that not everything your Art and Design Director is telling you is gold! Generally,...

    Clean studio, good kitchen, Irvine is a clean area

    Kontras

    no respect for their employees, they are so rude and they really don't value their employees as humans, you are just a part of their business.

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Ready At Dawn Studios (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    I'm always motivated to do my best because I trust everyone else is as well. It's evident through daily updates and day to day production conversation. Most of the production staff have their eyes set on making great games and not just benefiting themselves.

    Kontras

    It seems that management leans on beaurocracy more times than not. With the amount of time, effort and energy spent on making games collaboratively (most work long past the mandated core hours) the studio seems to lack trust with it's employees.

    Rat an das Management

    Trust your employees and put more effort into showing more appreciation for the hard, dedicated work that is put forth by your very talented staff.

    Pros

    Good location. Nice office. Good equipment and tech

    Kontras

    It was entertaining to read the positive reviews on this page. Some are so formal, it almost seems like it was written by the management. Hmmmmm…. If they were, you'd think they would have better things to do than care about some Glassdoor reviews. Anyways, there were some ridiculous, unrealistic expectations from the company, while not meeting many of their own promises. Layoffs and firings seem to come suddenly....

    Pros

    They have good tech. Their developer tools and pipeline workflow is maintained. Good health care plan.

    Kontras

    After a lot of talented developers left the company after The Order tanked, a flood of bad reviews came out that accurately described the problems that still plague the company today. To any prospective employee, I would read those first before committing to this company. When those reviews came out, the employees were told to go and write good reviews for glassdoor. So I wouldn't trust any of the glowing the reviews...

    Ich arbeite bei Ready At Dawn Studios ()

    Pros

    One of my favorite parts of working for ready at dawn is that the upper management give me the ability to be as creative as I want with regards to how I get my job done. I 'm not told how to do my job as long as I produce. Giving me that freedom has allowed me to develop in ways I wouldn't have otherwise and this in turn has helped me to learn new tech as well as given me a great deal of pride in the stuff I do. As...

    Kontras

    Ready at Dawn is a gaming studio so it shares are the standard downsides of working for any gaming studio specifically long hours. Beyond that, my only criticism is that RaD is still trying to figure out how to be a larger studio while maintaining a small studio mindset. In general having a small studio mentality is a great thing, but sometimes that bleeds into seemingly inconsistent managerial policies and practices.

    Rat an das Management

    Like I stated in my con's list above consistency is important to me with regards to managerial policies. And whether or not the policies have stayed the same or not the perception is not there.

From Ultimate Frisbee to Movie nights things are always happening. 5. I've got a great lead and work in a department that collaborates very well. 6.

    Kontras

    1. Glassdoor says I’m slightly underpaid (but that could also be from my terrible negotiating skills) 2. Bottlenecks in the pipeline. At times it's harder than it should be to push assets through. 3. A never ending snack bar (this could be a pro if you have will power) Overall, most game companies have the same cons. If I had a long list of cons to write out I wouldn't still be here.

    Rat an das Management

    Continue to take in feedback and suggestions. Nice to see post mortem concerns actually addressed and improved.
