      Be Organized, Be Successful

      Jan. 20, 2023 - Back Office in Frankfurt am Main

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      In a company like Crytek, if you're organized, work comes easy. The workload is not excessive, the hours are good and the expectations are reasonable. The main issue is the inherent chaos that comes with iterative development inherent in the games industry aligned with the CrytekChaosTM.

      Cons

      If you need structure from the outside, Crytek might be a difficult place to start out. Chaos is the norm sometimes and there is a very hands-off approach from management, which means you need to find ways to organize yourself.

      Pros

      Friendly and talented people. Great work-life balance, and an encouraging and inclusive atmosphere. Opinions are equally considered, and you have a large amount of autonomy in your work.

      Cons

      Sometimes decisions trickles down by casual conversations rather than by proper processes

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some absolute pearls in the people working there Work ethic is good, they don't expect you to work extra hours outside of your core hours Flexible with WFH/Full remote Benefits are good - Commute ticket, gym membership etc. Looks good on a resume

      Cons

      Some teams are great, some I'd say to avoid. Upper management is completely disconnected from reality and unprofessional Direct management/middle management and HR don't follow up with harassment claims Racist and sexist remarks are normalized all around the office Other employees from random departments telling you how to do your job in a very unprofessional manner and nothing gets done from direct management

      Crytek Response

      Hi, thank you for the review on our Glassdoor profile. We realize that this review is referring to Crytek Black Sea only (Sega aquisition) and 2017, five years ago. We want to point out that Crytek is still a great place to enter the industry and we would be happy to convince you about that. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline (C4) and would be thrilled to bring back more veterans as well. If you are interested you can check out our career page and the team can talk with you about it in an interview :)
