Can be fun and exciting, but the company demands ridiculous hours.

Pros

Fun to make video games, can do some cool things if you're on the right licenses, most of the people are cool and good to work with.

Cons

70-80 hours/week consistently, no budgets, it's not about quality but rather how quickly and cheaply you can get something done.

    I worked at Activision Publishing as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Activision Publishing offers something for everyone. It has a very vibrant community and everyone is willing to help. There are beers going around the office and they host a get together one friday a month with drinks, music, and food.

    Cons

    Orientation is poorly thought out. When going into such a big company, orientation should be a big focus so you know the company you're working for. There is also sometimes a lack of communication within departments.

    I worked at Activision Publishing as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get to play video games ALL DAY! We take breaks often which is needed when testing video games. There is usually opportunities for overtime. Training helps you get an idea of how your time there will go.

    Cons

    If you are assigned to a "bad Game" the work can get very tedious and boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rotating games among teams to get fresh eyes on the game and keep the testers interested.
