Piranha Games Inc. Employee Review

Just walk away

This company would be amazing to work for, were it not for the troika running it. The three main executives are consistently nepotistic towards advancement, callous towards their customers, arrogant towards licencors, stubborn to new and useful ideas, and outright deceitful in their promises to customers and employees alike. They will happily make you work overtime without any intention to recognize or pay for it. They are also willing to sacrifice the career and names of their workers if it means avoiding ever apologizing for their own mistakes and policies. Never bother with this company for products or employment.

Pros

Free soda & granola, great team

Cons

Terrible leadership

A great place to work at!

Working here provides a great work life balance and the people here are all friendly so it feels more like a family. We also have a number of social events where we get a chance to spend time in a more relaxed setting. Moreover, professionally there are plenty of opportunities to learn new skills and innovate. Management are understanding and supportive, and even though it is a busy environment everyone respects your time.

Solid company that looks to improve

Piranha has been around for 20 years, and has gone from making niche market fishing games, to well-reviewed mainstream titles. Crunch time had been a problem on earlier projects, but they have mostly solved that. The owner and most staff are passionate about the products they make, and employees are generally open to ideas. The current HR is great, and this has been a huge step up for Piranha, particularly for recruitment. Job satisfaction can vary immensely. Senior management does not check up on workload, and if you are not a self-starter, you will be quite bored (but not fired, at least not until a project gets cancelled).

Pros

Profitable, Passionate, Balanced

Cons

Loosely managed, Communication issues

The benefits that come with working for a smaller company shouldn't be underestimated.

Pros The bosses are approachable and genuinely care about the employees. They are passionate about the product and work hard to make it the best that it can be. For the most part, we are relatively insulated from the soul crushing work/life balance issues that are typical of the industry. The comparatively small size of the company means that if you want them to, your ideas and work can really make a meaningful impact on the product. Cons There's a fine line between too much structure and not enough, and I think that oftentimes we find ourselves on the side of not enough. Consequently, self motivation will get you a long way.
