Pros

Very fun product, amazing group of peers, diverse technology stack, and a broad range of problems to solve and opportunities to pursue. ROBLOX is a real meritocracy, where hard work, passion, and results win over everything else. You're constantly learning, and constantly improving. People are well rewarded and praised. I see some negative comments on this site about retention, but retention has been great from what I see, and we've doubled in size in less than one year.

Cons

I think there are downsides for those who cannot adapt quickly, who are not flexible, or who are not able to consistently deliver. For these people, ROBLOX can be a challenge. ROBLOX can also be a tough place for those uncomfortable with a narrowly focused, highly iterative approach -- employees must be able to tolerate off-scope ideas being placed on the sidelines, and having interim results being "works in progress". From what I hear, ROBLOX is no different than other dynamic and successful tech companies.

    Pros

    Company is growing even though a lot of people have never heard of us.

    Cons

    Would like less distractions from coding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stick to the policy of being discriminating on the hiring as we continue to grow. Even though there is pressure to expand the staff keep our standards very high.
