    I worked at Rockstar Games full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and dinner service for those working overtime. Great location and lots of company benefits.

    Cons

    Sometime you get contradictory instructions on what to do and what the pipeline is due to working internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Specify job tasks and provide up to date instruction resources for job duties. Clarify how much autonomy is desired when reporting or fixing issues.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rockstar Games (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process took well over a month with significant periods of time between each stage where Rockstar was unresponsive to emails regarding the position. The interview process felt as though they were less interested in my abilities and more interested in gauging whether or not I would work a 60+ hour work week. They expressed (countless times in 3 separate sessions) that I could "kiss my social life goodbye." In fact, the last set of interviewers (senior managers) were only interested in discussing work hours.
