    I worked at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture and vibe here are second to none. Blizzard is hands down the best employer I ever worked for. Who else ships the whole company plus significant others to Vegas for a 2 day party to celebrate game launches?

    Cons

    Some management is still in place from the days blizzard was a couple hundred employees and as such they have no real management experience let alone at a massive company
    Blizzard is a company of experts so the pay is a little lower than you would find somewhere with a larger spread of skilled and less-skilled employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When incompetent management repeatedly gets abysmal reviews, take action instead of making empty promises. I had to leave the company to get out from under them and advance.

    Interview Details

    It is clear that this company does not look closely enough at each applicant's skill by visiting portfolio websites. They need to look beyond the resume and actually look at an applicant's work.
