I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Really great coworkers, fun place to work and excellent potential to advance.

Cons

The company has been building out middle management which has been stagnating progress on projects. Also, the company takes too long to develop games and at times thinks it knows what customers want when they don't.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Decrease development time for projects. It should not take a decade to make a game.

    Pros

    Supportive environment, with tons of opportunity if you're willing to work for it.

    Cons

    Because so many people have worked here together for so long, the cliques and "clubs" can be exclusionary and uninviting to newer employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more consistent from one group manager to the next - at times it can seem there is no calibration, even though there is.

    Keep up the transparency.
