    I worked at Games Workshop full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun, unbelievable benefits, always treated with respect, the people who work there are passionate and cool, they make it very easy to understand how to succeed and increase your income with the company.

    Cons

    The pay isn't amazing. They do give you all the tools you need to improve it, and the incredible benefits help a lot, but it can be a really slow build to get to a decent income. It's worth it if you are patient and passionate about the job.

    GW is a unique and quirky place to work. Managers want to support their staff and there are lots of opportunities to develop and progress. GW has a very diverse workforce allowing fora variety of experience and insight.

    Needs to catch up with being a big business. Some senior managers are very stuck in their ways.
