    I have been working at Bede Gaming full-time

    Pros

    - Employee-centric, management genuinely concerned with staff well-being - "Flat structure" so if you are a dynamic person you can go above and beyond and progress - Welcoming and friendly across the board - Genuinely open to innovation and new ideas, there's always something new happening.

    Cons

    - "Flat structure" while it's good for dynamic individuals can mean it's difficult to see a clear path for progression, double-edged sword, can get stuck in a role / pigeon-holed. - Some siloing between departments and red-tape can be frustrating when you need support from someone outside of your own department

    I have been working at Bede Gaming full-time

    Pros

    Culture and people are great, and generally outweigh any cons.

    Cons

    The tech is a bit long in the tooth these days, and Bede doesn't move very fast or innovate rapidly, due entirely to stack choices.

    I have been working at Bede Gaming full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere that's works and promotes hard work. (Strange but true) Everyone is really friendly and most people will go out their way to help you. Inclusive workplace and nice airy meeting rooms. Oh a beer fridge on a Friday always good after a long week.

    Cons

    Always leave these reviews for a while to see if I can find any. After almost a year I still can't.

    Pros

    The care for the staff is second to none. Free breakfast everyday, great coffee and generally just a really great culture. Relaxed yet progressive.

    Cons

    If your comfort zone is corporate structure you may struggle.

    I have been working at Bede Gaming full-time

    Pros

    They listen to their employees and actively try to do something about the concerns that people raise. Promotion of mental wellbeing - who else does that? Food vans arranged are great, plus the food is on the company from time to time. Pretty flat hierarchy. More "leads" than "managers". Don't expect much red tape except that imposed by clients. A senior management team that understands the benefits of investing in dev teams and giving them autonomy rather than a top down flow of work.

    Cons

    Location isn't great but the company does their best with where they are.
