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

Pros

It's a bug company and it has great games. It's a good place to learn about videogame testing and meet people from around the world.

Cons

Temporal contract. Low salary and high amount of weekly hours in busy projects (working Saturdays and Sundays)

Advice to Management

Increase the salary to attract more talented people

    I worked at Activision full-time

    Pros

    They pay well, if you're on a hot video game you get pretty much all the support you want. Also, it looks great on a resume when looking for jobs elsewhere.

    Cons

    Company is very short sighted, and likes to lay off a few people every month. It's ALL about the money for them

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to build a franchise. COD won't last forever, and there is a reason why your stock price hasn't moved in years.
