I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for less than a yearPros
Strong executive leadership, fun industry, commitment to quality with awesome games, very talented employees, teamwork and collaboration, HQ is in a great location (sunshine and beautiful weather all year round...never get tired of this!), Blizzard perks and the wellness program are pretty cool too.Cons
I haven't seen anything that is a big con at this point after being here for about 6 months - and I'm thrilled to be here. I've always been a fan of the company and games, so it's amazing to now be a part of it all. It has exceeded my expectations.Advice to ManagementAdvice

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Blizzard Entertainment in August 2014.Interview Details
This... was really insane. To be honest.
I got a call on phone from HR. Then another call from another person in HR. Once that was completed I was set up with a call from a front end developer technical review. Once I completed that I was set up with another call with HR. After that they sent me a technical take home exam no more than 3 hours - to build a Ul Li menu from scratch not using jquery. ONce I completed that - then another call. After that they finally flew me out to Texas.
When I arrived it was very late. I felt like I didn't have time to prep. I had to pay for all the taxi service which is almost 100 a pop each way.
When I got to the building - I was immediately put in a room for an hour to do a really intense senior level engineer exam with no internet or references. I was told if I didn't know it off hand - to just write down my process of troubleshooting.
Once I did this I was put in another room with 3 people to interview. Then a lunch interview with 2 people. Once that was completed another 2 man interview. Then a conference call with some big wig in California. I was told... mind you Im a front end MVC developer - that they weren't interested in me because I didn't know enough low level coding.
I was told to come back in 6 months. I was more shocked than anything. They did inform me there is an abundant of people begging to work for them so in a sense - they were hoping for a senior level developer for mid level/junior level wage. So.. thats my experience.Interview Questions
