I worked at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Wonderful facility, great medical/dental/vision plans, Friendly atmosphere.

Cons

When promoting employees they tend to overlook qualities and strengths and instead they choose employees based on a "popularity contest". Ive had many friends that should have received a raise/promotion but they were overlooked because they were the quiet type. They have metrics that are not concrete and are unreasonable. Right when you think you're doing great they change the metrics again and you have to work towards a new goal to try and get a raise.

Plain and simple they have a well constructed system that makes raises very difficult. Be prepared to get paid less than what you're actually worth. They know that there are fanboys out there that are willing to do this job for next to nothing and they have mentioned it to employees before.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the metrics system and offer a more competitive pay.

    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.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Fun and casual.

    Cons

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