Toys for Bob Fallen by the Wayside since Activision

Modeler (Former Employee)
Novato, CA

I worked at Toys for Bob full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are few pro's for working there now, other than simply for the money and work-experience. The culture is cliquish and closed, and no longer has the family working together feel that it once had. Now it is quite dog-eat-dog with decisions being made by management that is ill-suited to make them.

ConsThe atmosphere has been on a steady decline, even while the somewhat transitory success of Skylanders has kept the financially strong. The company had strong work/life balance while they were still independent, although career opportunities have always been minimal (the chance to move up here is fundamentally nil). Senior management makes many decisions based on cliques, rather than skill or appropriate design sense. Culture that used to be strong, is now pretty much dead, corporate desert. Very sad really

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

An experienced video game developer that knows how to make fun games!

I have been working at Toys for Bob full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Toys for Bob is definitely very good at scheduling, being decisive, knowing their limitations, and setting realistic goals. Most video game companies are notorious… Cons: None really. I've been in this industry for over a decade,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
