    I have been working at Wizards of the Coast for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A company filled with smart, creative, passionate people. Supportive of work-life balance, several fun employee appreciation events every year. Individual contributors are valued, at least in my department.

    Cons

    Some senior management are difficult to work for and some key teams are understaffed and under-resourced.
