The latest internal survey highlighted problems with the work culture within Paradox Interactive, including mistreatment and gender discrimination. However, it wasn’t the reason for the recent resignation of the company’s CEO Ebba Ljungerud.

The survey was conducted by unions Unionen and Sveriges in August, Swedish outlet Breakit reports. 133 employees participated in it, with 44% saying that they have experienced abusive or incorrect treatment at Paradox.
When it comes to women specifically, 69% of them answered about experiencing mistreatment at the workplace.
“Offensive treatment is a systematic and far too common problem at Paradox,” the unions concluded, adding, “There is a perception that perpetrators at managerial level are protected by the company.”
The survey results were published just days after Paradox Interactive CEO Ebba Ljungerud left “due to differing views on the company’s strategy going forward.”
Fredrik Wester, who had held this position for 10 years before stepping down in 2018, will take Ljugerud’s place as Paradox’s new CEO.
