The law popular job board Career Connection gives employees the opportunity to rate their company. From Software currently has a rating of 2.6 out of a total of five stars. Job satisfaction received from former employees 2.2, stress management 2.6, and compensation just 1.9 stars.

Even sexual harassment in the workplace seems to have taken place at FROM Software. So an employee explains:
