    I have been working at Rockstar Games full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work/life balance has improved immensely from what was once proclaimed about the studio. Strong management interested in individual employees. Very genuine and passionate employees who want to see you succeed. Really solid compensation and benefits. Work on some of the world's largest and most well known games. Learn how to work with teams across the world.

    Cons

    Probably best not to identify yourself on social media as an employee, as you open up some more doors than you might intend. Not a con of the studio itself.

    I worked at Rockstar Games full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It was great to work on some of the biggest projects in the gaming industry. There is good scope to learn a new skill/workflow, but after that, it tends to get very monotonous.

    Cons

    Felt let down by the management and the dept lead, as there was a clear stink of favoritism in the air. The environment dictatorial in nature.
