I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The culture and people are amazing to work with. Many of them are "super" talented as artists and software engineers.

Cons

Still a small company feeling. Though the company is still growing it is a healthy natural thing for the "small company" feeling.

Advice to Management

Management needs to trust in the people you hire to do the right thing. Treat all business units as equals. Each team as a huge variance in talent. The company has brought in top talent and lost it because they do not pay attention to how great that talent is doing. Game Teams, though are the driving force of blizzard, should respect all other aspects of the business units at blizzard. It is Blizzard Entertainment and not Blizzard Games for good reason.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Fun and casual.

    Blizzard suffers from growing too quickly and as a result there are many people in powerful positions with no real enterprise experience.

    I worked at Blizzard Entertainment full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great CoWorkers, cool benefits if you're a gamer, Nice facilities, lots of fun and events

    Cons

    Long hours, cliquish culture, crunch times that last for months, your contributions can get lost in the sea of employees, lots of competition for promotions etc.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the middle management as much as possible, it was beginning to feel a lot like office space with several supervisors and managers to report to.
