I worked at Activision Publishing full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You'll likely be around top tier professionals. If you're not then you're in the wrong group. The culture is smart, hard working and filled with high performers.

Cons

You have to do your own work. Might sound silly, but this is not a place you can come on and survive on reputation and position alone

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of a "favorites" type culture. There are so many high quality people there, that it's actually easy to take for granted that quality. I've seen "glue guys" and girls overlooked simply because there isn't the need to appreciate them.

    I have been working at Activision Publishing as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere including management that is down to earth and friendly. There is passion for gaming all the way from top with Glenn Vistante and Jeff Roper down to the new QA testers. Awesome place to learn the ropes as a tester in this well established company.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to grow with the company as a QA tester which is normal in the gaming industry.
