  • 401K Plan  (17 comments)

    “The 401k is decent. But the Rollover Roth and additional Roth I have through troweprice is way out performing the blizzard 401k. I looked at the...”

    Multiple bonuses throughout the year. Best team meetings ever....all involve food and beer!

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Software Engineer in Irvine, California

    Good overall provision of benefits including healthcare, 401k and PTO. PTO starts at 10 days +2 float days increasing to 15 days per year after being there for a year. You get additional sick days on top of this.

    Horrible pay for Irvine, CA. You really need to make your pay more competitive across the industry. Every year more people complain on the employee opinion survey that their salary is not "fair" and yet nothing is done

    The healthcare and 401K are awesome. I love getting free codes and games. I also appreciate how my family can utilize the tools.

    Healthcare plans are amazing with low deductibles and extensive coverage, 401k matching is 25% (roth and traditional) with a 1/2 year vesting period, materinity/paternity includes 8 wks paid, and other swag offered periodically throught the year tied in with product launches. Unfortanately, no stock options are presented or if they are it is done on a very limited scale.

    The health insurance coverage was excellent and very inexpensive when I began working at Blizzard in 2010. By 2017 is was becoming more costly to the employees but it was still great coverage overall. They also matched 20% of our 401k contributions which was great.

    It continues to cost a bit more every year, but solid offerings overall

    Overall great benefits and perks. It's the stuff you assume we would get at a gaming company: lots of free swag, blizzard bucks for in-game purchases, free game codes to Blizzard and Activision games, etc. Just needs to improve on 401k match, it's a little lackluster but nothing to really gripe too much about.
