    J'ai travaillé chez A Thinking Ape en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    - Some smart people doing good work.
    - Good perks and pay.
    - Current head of HR is super.
    - Staff are comfortable and churn is low.
    - Very stable company (for games).
    - Some interesting problems to solve.
    - Possible to learn a lot.
    - Nice office space.

    Inconvénients

    - There's some Kool Aid to be drunk about how great the company is. This can lead to complacency and arrogance from the management team.
    - Aversion to QA and project management staff, meaning work can be pretty chaotic.
    - Crunch is celebrated and teams have burnt-out.
    - Product strategy is very safe, which means work can be dull.
    - Small company compared to more corporate studios (EA, Microsoft, Kabam) and slower than newer startups in Vancouver. This means slow and capped career growth.
    - Some non-standard team structures and job specs can make moving on hard.
    - Lots of the staff aren't passionate about the games.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Be willing to listen to and accept difficult feedback.
    - Be cautious about playing armchair psychologist.
    - Be bolder in product strategy.

    Candidature

    Le processus a pris +4 semaines. J'ai passé une entrevue à A Thinking Ape.

    Entretien

    The interview took about 20 minutes start with casual chat. And then it went on with standard questions about yourself, your interest, and etc. Then they started to ask whether you've played any of their games and thoughts of about the games for time longer than expected.
    No skill-related question was asked, seems like they are more interested to know if you are really into game industry and have your own thought.
