Crunch Culture and What You Can Do To Escape...Hint, It Ain't On Twitter

By John 'JP' Podlasek

Summary: “Crunch” is in the news, yet again. The industry’s dirty little secret is in the spotlight (just Google “intense crunch”) and surprise, everyone’s shocked. Why? It’s been going on since games were on floppy discs. Everyone’s preaching unions. But they’re not going to be your savior, at least any time soon. And most companies will find ways around them. So instead of waiting for the union tooth fairy, hear my advice for researching and applying to companies that take culture and work-life balance seriously. They exist. Get your house in order and apply. Take action and rise above the Twitter ranting.
