Featured Review

Current Contractor - Functional Game Tester

I have been working at Activision Blizzard for less than a year

Pros

- 40 hrs of sick pay off the bat. - Paid training. - Very PC. - Community involvement. - Moral Compass - Understanding

Cons

- Long hours - Lots of Multi tasking - You have to learn to use a lot of uncommon software that may take time to learn how to use and can be frustrating.

Advice to Management

Check on your testers more frequently. Especially your overnight employees. Especially the ones who started off eager to learn and please but have fizzled out. This job is very exhausting to those... with mental health issues.
