Something really special!
HR-Generalist (Current Employee) –  StockholmOctober 2, 2018
The atmosphere at Arrowhead is something special. I have not met a single person here who wasn't thrilled to be a part of this company. That is because the culture at Arrowhead is very much built on trust and communication. No matter the situation everyone here can count on the support of their colleagues.

The leadership is very focused on making sure that people have a good and healthy work-life balance. For instance, the core working hours are between 10:00 and 15:00, and outside of that people can adjust their schedules according to what suits them best. There are numerous benefits such as a weekly wellness hour, a yearly wellness allowance and even a massage therapist who comes to the office every other week!

Arrowhead also prioritizes secure and long term employments instead of short contracts. It contributes to the friendly family feeling where you can really get to know the people around you. Security and stability are also important to the studio as several different health care insurances, payment to pension funds and quick access to health care is included in the terms of employment.

There is almost always something going on at the studio. Such as, movie nights on Fridays or people playing video games in the kitchen during lunch breaks. Not to mention a recent company trip to Rome! It really is an awesome place to be!
Pros
Awesome people and great benefits!

Work with great people in a "family-like" culture
Community Manager (Current Employee) –  Stockholm, SwedenSeptember 6, 2018
I enjoy working at Arrowhead because you're given a high level of autonomy and trust. There's not a lot of micro-managing going on, which lets you just get on with the things you're best at - you have the freedom to really excel. You're also encouraged to give suggestions and opinions, even if they aren't specifically in your "area". It feels like everyone has a voice.

The other nice thing about the company is that teamwork is strongly promoted and you're placed in a supportive and collaborative environment. Regardless of discipline, it is easy to chat to people and everyone is eager to help each other. There are no big egos here; everyone is focused on making great games.

In regards to the social aspect, there is always friendly office chat and at the end of the week people do not rush to go home - you'll often find people hanging out. There is no typical crunch either and no pressure to stay working extra hours. The flexi-time reflects this as some people leave at 15:00!

If you're looking to work in gamedev, but don't want all the stereotypical cons that come with it, Arrowhead is strongly recommended. It is really nice to find a company where you feel secure as they aim to hire for life, not just project based.
Pros
Food and snacks, comfortable environment, nice location
