    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.

    I worked at Blizzard Entertainment as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't give enough praise to the work environment that Blizzard has put together. Alot of companies like to portray the same image but Blizzard actually delivers. I've been in the industry for around 10 years and worked at over 25 client sites and this is the first place I can truly say that I loved coming to work every single day.

    Cons

    Deadlines and deliverables were never concrete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing an amazing job. Keep it up!
