    Pros

    - Longevity (25 years and counting) - AAA titles (Call of Duty franchise) - Work life balance (no 6 month or year long crunches) - Winning culture - Management listens to concerns and acts on them - No a-holes rule - So much talent in every department - Competitive pay + yearly bonuses - Swag...so much swag

    Cons

    - Remnants of "good 'ol boys" club (some people have run out of value and are still here) - Communication of deliverables - Outward facing studio recognition

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for recognition externally. Part ways with those that no longer add value to the organization.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Raven Software in March 2015.

    Conference style phone interview with Lead and Senior Artists. Went through portfolio work, recent employers, hypothetical work scenarios, and my work ethic and process. All in all it, lasted about an hour, they were very thorough with the whole interview.
