Late Night News Edition

Quantic Dream studio and its CEO, David Cage, are currently dealing with several allegations regarding having a toxic workplace environment. Bulk of the complaints revolve around staff being overworked beyond reasonable hours and racist and homophobic remarks by both Cage and CFO Guillaume de Fondaumière. Guillaume de Fondaumière was also accused of using degrading remarks towards staff at office parties.

In regards to the racist and homophobic allegations, Cage dismissed them as just jokes and the excuse of him not being a homophobe because he works with gay people.

Quote:
Cage and Guillaume de Fondaumière, Quantic Dream's co-CEO and CFO, are facing a variety of accusations including overworking staff, overlooking racist and sexist jokes including 600 crude Photoshops, and inappropriate behavior.

Le Monde -- the only paper without a paywall -- interviewed 15 former employees about their experience with the company. While Cage's work ethic is almost universally praised, his management style is not. In February of last year, an IT manager for the company was sent a cache of 600 Photoshops featuring employee faces pasted onto sometimes sexist or homophobic imagery, the earliest of which dates back to 2013. Also, there's some Nazi stuff thrown in there because of course there is.

Cage and de Fondaumière told Le Monde they only saw the images considered funny even though they were cc'd on emails containing a link to the folder with all of the questionable material. Le Monde spoke with Cage at Quantic Dream where he argued the company is not a "rugby locker room," which sounds like a play on that "locker room talk" nonsense we had to deal with in 2016 ...

Perhaps most damning is two employees recounted an incident where Cage was viewing security camera footage of a burglary and he turned to an employee of Tunisian descent and inquired if he was related to them ...

While Cage is the most noteworthy person in the article because who doesn't have an opinion on David Cage, de Fondaumière doesn't get off easy. Former employees accuse him of making inappropriate remarks and degrading employees at office parties. Others interviewed by Le Monde also note 80-hour work weeks, 15-hour work days, and working seven days a week.
