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

Pros

Staffed with the best, brightest, and most collaborative developers in the industry. This is a friendly environment where people lift each other up to produce the greatest things possible for the players, as opposed to tear each other down in an attempt to climb a ladder.

Incredible attention is paid towards ensuring employee satisfaction. From great perks (free food, video game fund, fun group/team/company outings, tons of League of Legends goodies, a responsibly relaxed expense policy and more) to a PTO-less attendance policy (just take off when you need to), Riot consistently evaluates and looks for new ways to create a phenomenal place to work.

An unwavering commitment to creating the best gaming experience for players. Many decisions are made for the greater good of the player despite any associated financial burden. This is a company with a long view, not one concerned about maximizing revenue for the next quarter.

Enormous growth opportunity for every imaginable position.

Cons

Apparently I cannot leave this blank. How about this, when I find a real solid con I'll update this section?

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing!

    I worked at Riot Games full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Casual atmosphere
    - Open-office atmosphere
    - Most employees are more than willing to teach you or explain what they're doing
    - Strong product

    Cons

    - Many employees work a lot of overtime
    - Late hours makes work/life balance difficult
    - Over-saturation of resources where not needed, leading to wasted work or a lot of wasted time
    - Losing sight of original ideals and values

    Advice to Management

    - Spend more time evaluating how your employees are performing.
    - Focus more on efficiency, rather than quantity.
    - Place more critical analysis early in or prior to production to minimize errors and repercussions later.
    - Minimize over-time and get people out of your office. Employees are burning themselves out, leading to less efficiency, worse health, and excessive expenditures.
    - Provide more training and guidance for new employees.
    - Need more honest communication so people understand where they stand, what they need to improve on, and what is actually of concern.
    - Revisit original ideals and values that made your product so popular

    I have been working at Riot Games full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is the best job I have ever had by a long shot. I love working with such passionate, intelligent and fun people! The work is challenging and interesting and the sky is the limit in terms of personal and company growth. There is a growth path for everyone in the company that works hard. Rioters have the choice to contribute as an individual or grow into a leadership role, it’s up to each person – even the hiring and recruiting process is open for involvement. I was brought in as an engineer and now have been able to build and lead a team!

    The perks are great too – we do a lot of fun activities (e.g. movies, baseball games, weekend getaways, paintball, etc.). There is a great coffee machine and a kegerator at the St. Louis office :-D and travel perks include traveling to other Riot offices across the globe.

     Overall, a great place to work!

    Cons

    Honestly, not many cons come to mind. As with many companies that have experienced the amount of growth that Riot has in such a short time, we have growing pains such as the accumulation of tech debt. The tech debt is understood and being addressed.
