As of late I always believe that every studio like Ankama (that is to say... most studios) will treat everyone like garbage unless you are a long-running senior; not even being extremely talented saves you anymore, for I know a few in my circle who do amazing things and yet they suck up to this thing a hundred times over.
I have colleagues and friends who need to work entire weekends over months nor can't even go back home during christmas because of crazy crunch times. I've reached the point where I flat out reject direct work offers from studios I used to admire ten years ago, knowing all this.
It's sad, and given the situation it's better to just do solo(..ish) work before letting someone else ruin the joy of executing your beloved career.
Considering how studio-torture has become an industry standard, we can just ignore it and enjoy what they do, at the very least *shrugs*
