Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Director

I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I'm just hitting three years here and I'm very happy. The comp might not be FAANG, but it's pretty damn good and I sleep well at night knowing I've got one of the coolest jobs on the planet. Riot is... taking some big bets, but we've been executing well and there's no reason to think we won't hit on some/most of them.

Cons

Company has an awesome culture but is also growing fast. How to keep that culture strong while integrating new people (especially all of the Hollywood people) will be a challenge.

Advice to Management

We're Riot Games. Arcane is cool, but keep the focus on the games.

Current Contractor - Independent Contractor

I have been working at Epic Games

Pros

Flexible hours ( well I am a contractor)

Cons

More jobs please!! Otherwise great
