Great managers, great company culture but poor pay!

Intern (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

ProsGreat senior management, lots of responsibility, nice office space, fast-paced and high energy environment, very close relationship to executives. Flat organization and very open and reliable workplace.

ConsLow pay, not much in terms of career advancement, small company, outdated technology. I had a late 90's desktop monitor, and a very slow computer. IT is very slow at responding to requests and they do not seem to concerned about employees workplace satisfaction

Advice to Senior ManagementAcknowledge good work and promote! Increase pay!! Activision doesn't even pay its employees half of what competitors do.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work, hard work is rewarded. But there is alot of sacrifice, time away from your family.
