Great culture but horrible supervisors and job opportunities

Account and Technical Services Tier II (Former Employee)
Irvine, CA

ProsBlizzard has a really relaxed work environment based around the culture of the games they produce. It's very relaxed and everyone there is proud to be a nerd/geek. They offer great health benefits and bonuses and profit sharing to full time employees

ConsThe attendance policies in the Customer Service department is based on a point system. Each time you call out it's three points, and it only takes nine points to get a write up, and twelve to be fired. They do not accept doctors notes to excuse absences, and if you are gone for more than three days in a row you have to apply for FMLA to cover the time you missed or else you risk getting written up or fired. There is also a lot of favoritism that goes on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
