Blizzard's Relaxed Work Environment

Senior Unix Engineer (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA

I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBlizzard offers a very relaxed casual work environment. Dress of course is Silicon Valley casual - jeans, shorts, sandals, etc.

Work is sometimes fast-paced - but definitely exciting and challenging

A good place to showcase your skill and increase your knowledge

ConsSometimes, groups work in silos

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more in touch with team members
work on actually building team cohesiveness

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
