    I worked at Blizzard Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    I love the people and culture at Blizzard. My team was easily one of the coolest and smartest people I've ever worked with, and we worked on some amazingly awesome projects. The company treats its folks extremely well with countless perks, events, swag, and benefits.

    Cons

    Sometimes people get fiercely prideful about their team and their projects, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can get in the way of cross-team collaboration.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Blizzard Entertainment.

    Interview Details

    I applied through an employee referral back in July. I was excited at the idea of working for a company whose products I've enjoyed since childhood, and was delighted when a recruiter contacted me a week later to schedule a phone interview. The interview went well, they asked how I felt about working in a somewhat harsh, troll-ey environment, what of their games I played, and what I liked about each one. Shortly after, I think the same day, the recruiter contacted me to schedule a Skype interview. This one was with a panel of people, much longer and more in depth. They asked me a bunch of testing related questions, and how I felt about the classes I played in WoW. I was told at the end of my interview that they would get back to me in two weeks. Here's where it got bad. Two weeks passed and I asked my recruiter for an update. I didn't get a response but I figured they were probably busy. I tried again a week later, and a week after that. A month later I was told that I should ask again in a week. This process went on for about two months before I received word that they decided to not move forward with my application. I'm pretty annoyed that a company I've admired for so long would treat potential employees this way.
