    I have been working at Turbine full-time

    Pros

    - Great people
    - Fantastic benefits
    - You're working for Warner Brothers!
    - Fun work events
    - WB specific benefits (access to movies the day before release, 4 times a year)

    Cons

    - Not much potential for job growth
    - Innovation has been severely stunted at Turbine
    - Inter-departmental communication leaves something to be desired
    - WB Corporate is heavy-handed at times, cramming the game into already-well established pigeonhole genres

    Email Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Needham, MA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Turbine (Needham, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke on the phone with the head of the email marketing program at Turbine first. It was a good conversation and he was quite informative about the job. I worked with an HR person to schedule a in-person interview. I went in a week later. Turbine is a cool and relaxed place; I felt comfortable. I met with individuals three times and I met with two groups of two. They were friendly and helpful and we had some good conversations about a variety of topics.
