I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (more than an year)

Pros

In short, the people. You will work with some of the most amazing people ever. You get taken care of and all the special parties are pretty nice too.

Cons

If you are in the CS side of things, you are pretty much stuck there. To get out to another branch of the company could take a miracle. And getting promoted gets a bit tricky, because those that are in the positions of power that you want tend not to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep rocking. You have some the best people, take care of them like you always do.
