Frustrating, no room for self starters

Customer Service (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for more than a year

ProsDecent benefits as long as you don't need allergy shots

ConsExtreme micromanagement, even for a call center - not only is it how much you do, it's how much you do at a time. The attendance policy is also very harsh - doctor's notes do not validate any absences.

Advice to Senior ManagementExtreme problems with upper management not understanding or caring about lower level needs. Constantly changing standards for evaluations and a steady stream of people leaving does not make a healthy work environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
