Default Valve Handbook for New Employees

Interested in an inside look at what new employees at Valve are walking into?

Flamehaus.com • View topic - Steam News

Even linked from Valve's Facebook page: Facebook - Valve adding a degree of genuineness to it.

It's an interesting if not unsurprising read having heard in interviews how Valve works.

Very interesting. I don't quite know how serious I should take it, but its approach to the role and hierarchy of employees is interesting. Also is what they admit they aren't good at.

Markus Persson (aka Notch), the original developer of Minecraft, turned it down, partially so he could have more individuality and control of his projects (and how the customers were dealt with).
