    I worked at Infinity Ward full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic environment, highly competitive salary and benefits. Incredibly talented and passionate group of people in the industry!
    Amazing project to work on with some of the minds that invented the most popular franchise in the entertainment history: Call of Duty! Fun work place with lots of amenities, parties and outdoor activities organization. Great technology to work with and ability to contribute to.

    Incredible sense of 'family' within everybody in the company from developers to high management. It's a company that believe in actions and not in mere words and talents will always be rewarded anytime it deserve. Great sense of justice and everybody share a strong vision and knowledge.

    Cons

    Long hours are needed during the last period but no surprise when you are working for such a big and well know franchise!

    Advice to Management

    You are just amazing, best managers in the industry!
