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

      Pros

      Good pay, fantastic benefits. That's it.

      Cons

      Management is full of deceitful people who set you up to fail. They will fire employees with very little reason, and will smile at you in the face while they stab you in the back. Do NOT trust any of the employees. It is a company built on the idea that if you are not a good fit, you are not worth keeping. They are obsessed with everything but work performance. If they don't deem you worthy of the Games Workshop name...

      Pros

      Pay, constant day, great benefits

      Cons

      Started to feel like a cult, management are shady, I was let go out of nowhere, my account base that I was given was bull crap, workers are fake, felt like I was set up for failure from the jump, no real advancement....

      Advice to Management

      provide better training , don't give a new employee accounts from veteran employees, be fare across the boars, don't be shady

      Pros

      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.

      Cons

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

      I worked at Games Workshop part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Weekly training involving customer service, sales, the companies products etc. Often conducted in the form of role playing exercises. Co-workers were nice and shared similar interests. Often spent time together after work as well.

      Cons

      Weekly training was unpaid for part timers. At peak times it could feel like the store was understaffed.

      I worked at Games Workshop full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Passionate people throughout the company, many of whom celebrate your success as much as your own. Support is readily available for those who need it.

      Cons

      Decisions seem to work on a pendulum basis, which can lead to a lack of stability from higher management. Sadly ego often seems to be a leading problem during any interdepartment disputes.

      Advice to Management

      When decisions are being made that impact multiple departments, give staff a clear indication of what is going on and the overall goal to be achieved. The constant chop and change helps few.
