    Former Employee - Director in Santa Monica, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Activision Blizzard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great vision and strategy - if they can pull it off with a divisive CEO and 0 collaboration across the companies in the group Mostly great people - nice friendly, smart, trying to do the right thing around the dysfunctionality They make some amazing games!

    Cons

    The Santa Monica office is a dump Be prepared to be overworked if you work in finance or any of the support teams - attrition is really high as people burn out and realize there are much better prospects out there The leadership team is political in the extreme - all competing to save their own skins and avoid getting cut by a genuinely dysfunctional CEO. The smart ones get out e.g. CFO

    Advice to Management

    CEO - retire and become chairman, hire a CEO who can build a team across ABK, who can make your vision real.
