      Pros

      Great IP; cool games to work on, ambitious, good quality of life, open and friendly atmosphere, cool campus (that continues to be improved), opportunity for ownership and career progression, profit sharing, trying to make things better (e.g. making transition to Agile), many cool and talented people, no publisher, fun, interesting, and creative place to work

      Cons

      Still trying to work out how to work as a larger company, hack made life harder, image/relationship to gamers has taken a blow; needs to be rebuilt, CP didn't live up to its potential (yet)

      Pros

      Once you work here, you are prepared to work in the toughest environments.

      Cons

      Prepare to not have a personal life, feeling meaningless to management, see your hard work sent to the trash, and in general working in the studio with the highest rate of devs under treatment for depression and anxiety in the industry.

      Incompetent, arrogant, mean and spiteful management

      Pros

      - Interesting projects - Overall cool coworkers

      Cons

      People in management will: - hide their mistake - try to blame you for their mistake - promote their friends to create small closed groups - say yes to everything from their boss - lie - and in general every decision they make is only to advance their career The studio is changing people like socks, overwork them and disrespect them only because they think they are CDR and they have plenty of people to change from. People in management think that the company's success comes from their leadership and the people don't matter, but the truth is the Witcher game was made with massive crunch and with awful management, and it's only by the hard work of the people the game was so good, but after the Witcher a lot of people have left. Arrogantly, management thought that they can just get a bunch of new people, they can promise even more and they will do more crunch and everything will be ok for Cyberpunk .... we all know how that went
