    Great resume and salary builder, but will ruin your personal life and well being if you stay too long.

    I worked at Treyarch full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is great, Santa Monica is a great location, Hi grossing AAA product. Has a very talented staff.

    Cons

    Very Political work environment, work ridiculously long hours is just expected, even if you have nothing to do, they want you in just because others are coming in. Did I mention that it is very political. Favoritism runs rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan better and save money and your teams well being by not having to redo work over and over again. Take a look at who is running the company below CEO level and vet everyone, because if you weren't handed such a massive IP, I doubt they would be as successful as they are.

    I have been working at Treyarch full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    AAA Game known by all
    Generally talented employees wanting to make great games
    Project bonuses for those that give up their lives

    Cons

    Culture of fear, power consolidation, and extreme crunch
    Production driven, very little opportunity for innovation
    Stagnant vision from creatives - too scared of upsetting ATVI

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with openness and respect. Rampant turnover will continue stifling quality and creativity as long as the crunch culture is in effect.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
