Pros

Working at Riot has been one of the best decisions I ever made.

I'm consistently challenged but don't feel overwhelmed.

I look forward to coming to work and being around talented, passionate people.

Great gaming hardware.

Video game (play) fund.

Benefits.

Personal & professional development.

People care.

Being surrounded by gamers means I can completely be myself.

Cons

Things can be slow to move, often times Rioters will take on too much work resulting in slow deliveries.

The office (for now) is spread apart enough that you are consistently late to meetings due to transit.

Internal comm/information centers feel frankensteined and ad hoc, often times you have to go to multiple internal locations to get information you need. Most likely resulting in you asking the person next to you for the answer.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring gamers! It's in our DNA and what makes this place amazing.

Keep caring! It's contagious at every level and it's what makes this place feel genuine.

Be transparent about work/life balance and what our opinion/perspective is.

    Pros

    Everyone really believes in the product and are passionate about what they do. Smart people, most of whom are down to earth (not too many egos) and Riot does well in keeping their employees happy. If you enjoy constantly being challenged, growing as a person, a fast-paced environment and learning, you'll get all of that here.

    Cons

    TONS of work which makes for regular long hours ... doesn't always feel like a "con", but might not work for all people.

    Advice to Management

    Seem to be fooled by poor leaders. You guys are too smart for that. Pay attention.
