    Pros

    + AAA title development + Culture + Amazing Benefits + Competitive Salary + Family picnics and parties + Room to grow and the support to do so

    Cons

    For me, this is a labor of love and true passion. Even with that being said, when it comes time to crunch, I lose sight of what a healthy work life balance means. Fortunately, time to crunch doesn't forever.

    Pros

    They care about your well being, physically and mentally, they've raised their cultural game. They're inclusive, and always interested in opinions and new ideas. They've worked on and developed some of the most iconic games in history. They're driven and when asked to help other studios from Activision, they were such an incredible support, they've been asked to work on and owned, pieces of every single Call of Duty product for the last dozen years. HR is very supportive and the company is filled with folks who are incredibly good at what they do. They have an amazing mentorship program for anyone who wants to be a part of it or learn something new. Madison Wisconsin is beautiful, there are places here in Wisconsin that will take your breath away. The food has become incredibly diverse in the last 5 years.. You never know what new game is on the horizon. Each day is something new. Oh, and I'll bet you look a long while before you find a gaming studio that has people that have been there over 20 years. Raven has loads, more than any other Activision studio. Some have been here over 30 with new employees coming in all the time. Most come here and stay.

    Cons

    Being an incredible support studio is wonderful, you get to work on something new all the time and it's very lucrative! Occasionally, when a new IP presents, you've got a lot of super talented people that would love to drive and own the challenge. That's not an insurmountable hurdle and not a bad problem to have. Most of the folks at Raven have the years and talent to back them up so they could Run a new IP. But it does occasionally cause tension, which more often than not, is soon lost to the drive for "Gold" in the end.
