Fun place to work at and great people to work with.

Fixed Assets Accountant (Former Employee)
Santa Monica, CA

I worked at Activision Publishing as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsI enjoyed working for this company. I learned a lot and made many friends. They invest in the latest technology and software.

ConsIt really depends on the department and the manager you report to like most companies. The turnover is high in some departments as it is hard to get promotions or raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to management is to not shop by salary. You get what you pay for. They need to do more to retain good talent and be more people driven. Activision Management caters more to people right out of college than the seasoned professionals in my eyes. I was a contractor and wanted to be hired on permanently, but upper management didn't want to meet me half way and bring me on board.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
