Pros

Great work environment. Fun and casual.

Blizzard suffers from growing too quickly and as a result there are many people in powerful positions with no real enterprise experience.

    Fantastic Company

    • Comp & Benefits

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer II in Irvine, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer II in Irvine, CA

    I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture and people are amazing to work with. Many of them are "super" talented as artists and software engineers.

    Cons

    Still a small company feeling. Though the company is still growing it is a healthy natural thing for the "small company" feeling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to trust in the people you hire to do the right thing. Treat all business units as equals. Each team as a huge variance in talent. The company has brought in top talent and lost it because they do not pay attention to how great that talent is doing. Game Teams, though are the driving force of blizzard, should respect all other aspects of the business units at blizzard. It is Blizzard Entertainment and not Blizzard Games for good reason.

    Current Employee - Game Master in Austin, TX

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

    Pros

    You could work in the video game industry! Work your own full-time schedule and get free playtime for your World of Warcraft addiction.

    Cons

    Except you'll be working graveyard and you're about as prestigious as a front desk supermarket employee. Be prepared to handle a lot of work.
