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.

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.
Pros
You can quit.
Cons
low pay, micromanagement, long hours, guilt trips.

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.

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.

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

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.
Pros
Really cool teammates

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.
Pros
The usual perks, fun people to work with.
Cons
Not much to learn.

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.

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.
Pros
free fruits, water and heating
Cons
no work culture and no opportunities to grow/advance

Je crois que le plus gros atout de gameloft est la liberté des horaires. Chaque employés à le choix d'arriver à n'importe quelle heure entre 7h et 10h le matin et je crois que sa aide les gens a être plus relax et d'apprécié encore plus leurs travail.
Pros
beaucoup de concours
Cons
L'attente pour les augmentation est énorme.
