    Former Employee - Developer in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    I worked at Crytek full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Highly talented people work here since Crytek has a good reputation in making top-notch graphical games even if gameplay is only mediocre. You'll learn a lot in that company if it comes to tech. The big team can be both: good but also bad. This depends on your personal merrits.

    Cons

    I joined Crytek and it was a good company with some kind of family feeling but it turned bad after hiring tons of developers with a "diva attitude". Crytek needs more people that work together instead of against each other. Here is my top 3 weak points but there are more I'm not writing about.

    - very bad internal communication
    - bad attitude of long time employed developers (luckily not all)
    - strong hierachical management (at least in some areas)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that fit to the company culture but not everyone you need.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Crytek in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was cool, very excited. I knew these before from an older company. So we already had trust in each other and what I could offer to the company. It was very relaxed and confident on both sides.
