Cons

Temporal contract. Low salary and high amount of weekly hours in busy projects (working Saturdays and Sundays)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the salary to attract more talented people

    I worked at Activision Publishing full-time

    Pros

    They pay well, if you're on a hot video game you get pretty much all the support you want. Also, it looks great on a resume when looking for jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Company is very short sighted, and likes to lay off a few people every month. It's ALL about the money for them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to build a franchise. COD won't last forever, and there is a reason why your stock price hasn't moved in years.
