    Befürwortet Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Retro Studios gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Great location if you love Austin. Competitive salary and benefits. Creative team is second to none. Allowed (or perceived) freedom to work through design issues and art solutions. Fun team that’s very collaborative.

    Kontras

    Some questionable project management. Sometimes communication comes to a grinding halt and deadlines can become either unreasonable, really fluid, or completely change for the most bizarre reasons. In-house engine can be a challenge to work with.

    Rat an das Management

    Start a blog for the concept art team to post their in house personal stuff. Be more communicative with over-arching goals for the company and where you want to be with your games.

    „Sad to leave”

    Ich arbeite bei Retro Studios ()

    Pros

    Retro is a nice place to work, it's very busy working on multiple games. I'm sad leave for family reasons!

    Kontras

    Too many projects cooking at once, quality seems to be suffering.

    Rat an das Management

    Next time you're asked to work on 3 different racing games at once, don't say yes.

    Pros

    Long time studio Owned by nintendo

    Kontras

    They are all but shutting down, the management doesn't know crap about gaming other than the CEO, and they are ordered by nintendo that if by 2019 they don't Begin putting lootboxes and microtransactions, they are gonna shut them down, the hero here is the CEO, who fruitlessly tries to convince ninty otherwise, and yes this is not easy or konami but nintendo

    Rat an das Management

    Please stop your shady crap

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 5 Jahren bei Retro Studios (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    You get to be a part of the Nintendo family. Consistent paycheck.

    Kontras

    Upper-management is seemingly unwilling to seek out help in areas where they are ill-equipped. The Peter Principle is apparent throughout most departments. Unpaid overtime. Little to no empowerment.

    Rat an das Management

    Radically increase transparency. Add systems to enforce accountability of upper-management. Ask for help and be open to constructive criticism.

    Ich habe bei Retro Studios gearbeitet ()

    Pros

    Stable; owned by Nintendo Good compensation

    Kontras

    Retro is a shadow of its former self. The company made terrible decisions after the Metroid Prime games. It used to have some of the best talent in the industry, and it still has a lot of good artists, but it lost almost all of its top-tier engineering and design talent after Metroid Prime 3 while bringing on a lot of people who never should have been hired. It didn't value its talent highly enough and now it's... paying the price, and the management doesn't know how to rebuild a team half as good as what it used to have.
