    I have been working at Digital Extremes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company takes great care of it's employees.
    Working on a game as a service means crunch is very rare.
    We make products that we can be proud of, with no business interference on the creative process.

    Cons

    Work methods are pretty chaotic, if you can get into that rhythm it can be great. But if you need a more structured and well supervised environment to work, it will be a real struggle.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Digital Extremes.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional because all the do is send out a take home test and no personal touch. No introduction to the studio. Never got to talk to anyone. Seems like bunch of people with ego problems and so you shouldn't want to work here.

    Interview Questions

    • Find bugs in given code   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Bad people and studio in general. Only did interview because recruiter insisted.
