    I have been working at King full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Games, Games, Games - surrounded by amazing like-minded nerds who come from some of the best companies around, having worked on some of the world's best IP
    - Heavy focus on diversity and inclusion, it is not just a buzzword here
    - Data-informed teams/transparency from leadership
    - Benefit/Compensation
    - Free noms
    - Lots of international travel depending on role
    - Lack of toxic masculinity that permeates other studio's cultures - everyone is heard here!
    - Mission statement: Every day we look to create IP and content that makes people smile. We are inclusive, your aunt, mom and best friend have played at least one of our games!

    Cons

    - If you're in North America, expect lots of early morning calls with folks across the pond. (If you're a morning person, move this bullet into the pro section.)
    - Certain segments of the business occasionally have a hard time understanding issues based on region and is very EU centric, we're working on it!

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    1 phone interview with recruiter.

    Twice I applied for roles at King and both times the recruiter in charge requested to connect with me on Linkedin immediately after submitting my resume, but did not follow up through formal process of contacting me via email/phone. It wasn't until after a month of my 2nd submission that he invited me for a phone interview, but only allotted 15 minutes for the call and requested that I call him. Although I had never ever experienced a recruiter requiring I call him and only requiring 15 minutes, I obliged. Sure enough, at the time of the call he did not pick up my call nor did he reply to my email. This is by far the worse recruiting experience I have ever had.

    I sincerely hope that King will take my experience and use it to improve their recruiting practices because as one of the first human contact applicants have with the employer, recruiters own that first impression, and the one that I was left with is that is that this recruiter doesn't respect applicants' time. Additionally and just as important, to expect to have an informative and valuable conversation in 15 minutes is unreal. If this is common recruiting practice for King, as a candidate, this tells me one of two things; either King has no real desire to get to know candidates to make sure a good match or their recruiting process really is that efficient.

    Either way, the entire experience just left me with a very negative image of King altogether.
