worth a try

Is a good start.Work and life balance.But how to make talented people stay and develop continuously is a difficult point. Talent and technical reserves determine whether a project can achieve high-quality labels

Points positifs

Work and life balance.

Points négatifs

Insufficient talent and technical reserves

Good people but poor management

I worked there for 6 years and I can confirm that there's an abundance of friendly workers in all departments, most french-speaking. In the smaller department I was in there was even a sort of family dynamic which was really nice. I was a valued asset to the team and we did fun team building activities once in a while.The work wasn't too stressful and in my case involved a variety of projects mostly on mobile (however GL is focusing on PC now too). They sometimes used in-house tools which were sometimes hard to use. Also the project themselves were sometimes difficult to work with, due to stability issues or overseas communication issues. The nicest thing about the work is seeing how well the game would be received once released and getting positive feedback in team meetings.The studio itself is really great. It has a big cafeteria, game room with pool+ping-pong tables and consoles+sofas, a small-ish terrasse and a big open-space design for its work areas. Everyday we had free fruit, every friday free beer, every year summer BBQ and Xmas parties and they organized special events here and there. All that was more relevant pre-covid of course.I learnt a lot about game development working here. Colleagues were very open and helpful and I was even able to learn things from other teams. They also did Gamejams every year.However a big negative would be management. There were many instances of projects being canned and lots of people lost their job. They mostly focus on ''safe'' brands now like Disney, or making sequels or clones and these definitely aren't the most innovative -

No respect for people

You are just an expendable asset, you are cut out in no time if you have a personal problem and it starts to affect your performance, they don't try to talk or help to improve your performance.You are assigned for tasks of another area and expected excellent performance from the start.

Points positifs

Salary

Points négatifs

Poor managament, Project is a mess, they have no idea of what they are doing.

A move I soon regretted

Joined as an Artist and Animator, During the hiring process I was made promises about advancement, promotion and raises/bonuses. Absolutely none of this came to be. After 9 hours of work my team was constantly made to feel guilty that we weren't staying late to make up for poor management of our titles. I learned nothing new at Gameloft, I was made to feel as I should be a worker and a teacher. If fruit, ping pong and low pay for the amount of work you are doing are your thing it may be alright for you. Management is quite frankly a mess with lower level managers mistreating their workers in the hope of advancement. Best part of my day was when I moved on.

Points positifs

You can quit.

Points négatifs

low pay, micromanagement, long hours, guilt trips.

as a game artist is good, but little boring too, a company without creative and passionate.

Very relaxed working environment, a little too relaxed, easy to lose fighting spirit, need to keep learning and progress by yourself , work assignments are not reasonable, management is not human taste.

Fun workplace, incredible talents, poor management

The people there are amazing, all very skillful. Environment was fun and working there was amazing. The main problem was the management who know nothing about game creation.

it's not a bad place to work.

personally it takes too long to move up, so if you're ambitious it'll slow progress down. it does provide comfort, it's really cushy and has a family feeling. coming from the bottom of the barrel, and moving between departments there are different micro climates of comfort. it's diverse, and the croissants, beer fridays and other social comittee aspects are great. mind you, working in software and coming back to videogames... it felt like a downgrade.

Good place to start

Day to day you work on assigned tasks and have daily scrums which are divided by feature for speed and relevance. During my time at Gameloft I was able to learn a wide variety of skills from Gameloft specific APIs to Networking. Teams are often small enough that you will have your hand in everything at some point. Management is not very good, typically due to external management micromanaging everything. Advancement within the company is typically hard and sometimes without a pay raise. Avoid Gameloft if you do not want to make 'clone' games. Majority of Gameloft releases are clones of other successful games (as you can see from the app store and their release history). Very few original and creative IPs are released

Points positifs

Fresh fruit, flex start hours, entertainment room (ping pong, foosball, game consoles), easily accessible by TTC and GO

Points négatifs

salary not competitive and quite low, 9 hour work day, food in the area is expensive if you don't bring breakfast/lunch, parking fills up fast after 9am

Too much pressure.

You wake up at 6, go to gl at 7:30 then you get to sit at your cabin, you think this is peaceful, then you get told to work on making a bad game. The only good thing they ever made was NOVA 3.

Points positifs

Really cool teammates

Has a bright(er) future

The key to this company is the big lack in the upper management, which in turn leads to a close knit workfoce and rallies against this upper management rather than picking on each others. The problematic mainly comes from the fact that the company grew too fast, and those at the top have been there only because they were there at the beginning, leading to rampant micromanagement, blanket desisions, and politics. Now. the company's been acquired, leading to the former heads being replaced. However, the culture is still there and will only change slowly. The perks are what you'd expect from a big game company but the salary is rather low, and they tend to hire mostly juniors. This leads to seniors quitting and a high turnover rate. In turn leading to low quality tools, products and procedures. It's a good place to start, but don't stay there. You won't learn that much.

Points positifs

The usual perks, fun people to work with.

Points négatifs

Not much to learn.

Terrible management

Management is the worst part of the company. They lie. I am disappointed in the company over all. Everything they told me that would happen with the role is not happening.

Nice company to work for with ups and downs

I work for GNS which is a team of professionals from all around the world.You can start anywhere between 7am and 10am and take long pause at lunch time. The building has been only renovated so it is very nice inside. 3 weeks vacation and 5 sick days ! On the other side if you stay with this company you may be stuck for a long time as it doesn't invest into knowledge too much. You may find yourself working with technologies that are not asked on the market. The management is ok, as everywhere else , doesn't care too much. Office culture is invisible. You find your guys and that is it. The people who fail doing that will come, work and leave for home, like some robots.

Points positifs

free fruits, water and heating

Points négatifs

no work culture and no opportunities to grow/advance
