    I worked at Activision Publishing

    Pros

    You received the chance to test games before they are release to the general public. This offers you the chance to obtain braging rights to your friends.
    Break into the video game industry
    Fun environment

    Long hours. There are days you will be working Monday through Saturday or Sunday making sure games get submitted on time.
    Tedious and repetitive work.

    I worked at Activision Publishing full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Respectable pay. Ability to work on industry-leading games. Attempting to manufacture a palatable work culture.

    Cons

    Insular, political culture. Lack of clear decision-making authority. Bland, dated and depressing office space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify project ownership, empower staff appropriately, update office space, stomp out the political culture and reward the true performers.
