    I worked at Roblox full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This is the most professional gaming company I have ever worked at, David, Keith, Matt everyone just oozes profesionnalism. None of that big ego stuff you find at other gaming companies, at Roblox people come to work to do their best and to be efficient at doing it.

    The Roblox game environment is a 24x7 host solution and yet OT hardly ever occurs why? Because the system was engineered to be robust and scalable, and what is probably even more important the alert and notification system doesn't bug you at first sign of problems, it actually has some intelligence to it such that you only get paged when things are really suspect/bad.

    Cons

    Not sure if I should put it down as a 'con' but Roblox is still a young start-up their policies and benefits are not as elaborate as you will find at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Roblox full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy access to Caltrain
    Company perk of free parking
    Equally oppressed coworkers (so you can commiserate)

    Cons

    You are treated like a drone
    Upper management doesn't seem to care about the users
    Gaming company mentality of not valuing its own employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the kids using Roblox as if they were your own.
