Challenging at times, but rewarding to work with leaders in the industry
Working at Wayland Games can be challenging at times, but also be extremely rewarding.They are an ambitious company, growing rapidly both financially and in terms of headcount. If you are keen to work in the tabletop gaming industry, they are probably the best up-and-coming company to work for at the moment. Their manufacturing capabilities are pretty much unmatched for a company their size, and they are working on some exciting properties - it's extremely rewarding to be a part of this.The culture within the business is also very good: colleagues are generally united by a shared love of the industry, so there's always something to chat about - and it also means people tend to be more passionate about their work. The management are, in my experience, very supportive: on the (quite numerous!) occasions I encountered challenges during my working day, I could always rely on being able to talk constructively and openly with them, which was a great help.There are some things to watch out for: as a rapidly growing company, some managerial structures still need working out, and communication between departments could be better - but this is being worked on, I believe, and it was already starting improve during my time with them.Salaries can also be pretty low *on the face of it* given the demands placed on staff, but speaking from experience this is not uncommon within the tabletop gaming industry - and if you like tabletop games you might well find that the generous staff discount offsets this. Ultimately, though, talent and hard work are rewarded and if you do a good job you'll be looked after.To summarise: I found working at Wayland Games to be challenging - a lot is asked of you, and it can be pretty hard work at times (but again, speaking from experience, this is true of any rapidly growing and dynamic company).This will vary by degrees from role to role/team to team - as a project manager I was in at the deepend and fingers ina lot of pies, other roles might be a little more relaxed! Ultimately, you will be surrounded by friendly colleagues, a supportive management team, and the knowledge you're working for a (very rapidly) rising star in the tabletop gaming industry.

Great Company to work for
Wayland Games was the best company have worked for. I always felt supported and was trusted to make some major decisions. I only left due to anti social hours and travel, not because of the company.If the job didn't involve late nights I would have stayed.

Underpaid and little career advancement
Lack of communication between departments and managers are often not there for staff. Promises are often made regarding positive changes but are rarely followed through. As a whole, the company is often unorganized with awful pay barely above minimum wage with at times a rude and abrasive CEO. Wouldn't recommend working here.

Terrible business run by terrible people
I couldn't recommend applying to work at Wayland Games, mostly because they lie to you in order to get on-board, for example, they may tell you that they will offer you a £20-22k contract, they'll actually offer you less. They say they want your fresh ideas so that you can boost their own sales, but you bring the ideas and they tell you that isn't the "Wayland way", they will tell you that it is a "laid back" environment when in fact it wasthe most stressful job I've taken, one other thing, they might tell you that you'll be replacing a team member that will be leaving soon after you join, that particular team memeber doesn't actually leave, they boss you around to get you to do their job for them for a couple of weeks so that they can be lazy.

Innovative company with great staff and managers
Wayland is a fantastic company to work for, managers listen to staff, everyone works hard and the rewards for doing so are great. The company is very forward thinking, looking at new ways of working and adapting quickly to change and taking into account people's work life balance. There is always something new and loads of opportunity to learn.
