I worked at Activision as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

You get to play video games ALL DAY! We take breaks often which is needed when testing video games. There is usually opportunities for overtime. Training helps you get an idea of how your time there will go.

Cons

If you are assigned to a "bad Game" the work can get very tedious and boring.

Advice to Management

Consider rotating games among teams to get fresh eyes on the game and keep the testers interested.

    Pros

    Great culture, one of the most fun places I've ever worked.

    Cons

    Studio was held back by the same people that created the great culture. Not the most professional, and the overall quality / effectiveness of the studio suffered. The projects we got were not terribly interesting or creative, and I think this was due to the fact that on the whole, our work was average at best.

    Advice to Management

    As much as working with your close friends feels good, it is not a smart way to do business.
