Collaborative work environment in a fun category

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Activision Blizzard

Pros

People I worked with were great - solid team dynamics and good information sharing across your peers. Exciting, ever-changing category to work in.

Cons

Senior management has too much of their hands in the development at times. I found us debating too much fine detail of the games in our senior management reviews, rather than keeping things at a strategic level.

    Pros

    Was an exciting time with plenty of opportunities. Lots of new deals and some great people to work with some of the time

    Cons

    Was a bit bureaucratic with mixed leadership. When things started to go wrong plenty of people were let go or left.

    QA Experience Is Average

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Activision Blizzard

    Pros

    - Experienced QA management
    - Talented testing teams who are eager to share knowledge
    - Trained QA rules that ensured limited bug duplication and high quality bug writing
    - Pay is equal to industry average (neither pro or con)
    - Free drinks and sometimes free food (with OT)
    - Very strict break schedules

    Cons

    - Outsourced a lot of QA jobs
    - Working conditions were dirty (this was when QA was in the basement of the Santa Monica office, has since moved to a new office space)
    - Difficult to move up
    - Limited computers that hindered efficient bugging practices
    - Felt like a competition with other testers

    Advice to Management

    - Increase bugging stations (or provide individual bugging stations to QA team members).
    - Reward high performers (bonuses, raises, promotions, etc.)
