Excellent benefits, great company culture.
a lot of traveling and crunch periods.
Advice to Management
I worked in the MN office, advice would be just this. When you get a potentially huge license, give it the resources it needs to flourish and grow into a AAA franchise.
I applied online. I interviewed at Activision in May 2017.
Spoke with three people from the Quality Assurance division at the same time. The position they described was different from the job description I had read when I applied. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to be a test or not, but since one of the interviewers was the head of QA, I didn't push back very hard.
I assumed the position was more general QA since the description said "this can include..." and listed various types, but when I got there, they specifically zeroed in on one (which, why not just say that on the description, I wouldn't have wasted your time...). I kinda prepped for a different experience, so needless to say, I didn't get the position.
