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

Pros

- you are trusted
- you are empowered to do what you feel is best
- there is no such thing as stepping on toes
- every voice is respected and heard
- bottom up culture, not top down
- leaders serve, not rule (I am one of the leaders)
- no micro managing
- no glass ceilings
- full of culture
- high level of self awareness of everyone around you
- everyone can move the needle, and when you do, people get behind it

Cons

- young team, more leaders are needed
- current leaders are often stretched thin
- some of our wants out pace what we can achieve. There is so much passion it is hard to remember to slow down and get it done right

Advice to Management

- Continue to enforce the values and culture of the company, as you already do, the team appreciates it.
- Remember to stay connected with your teams, and that their success is their success, and their failures are your fault.
- Read things like glassdoor, and take it seriously.
- Never be too busy to get better and grow.

    Pros

    * results oriented, no time for BS or politics.

    * there is never a lack of opportunity to grow and achieve what you want, it is up to you to take initiative and lead

    * company takes good care of employees

    * player focused approach makes our business sustainable in the long run and it is the secret to our success

    * talent focus mentality, we hire and nurture the best and foster a strong collaboration - you will really feel part of a team and not isolated

    Cons

    * need to find your work / life balance, which is encouraged but not always reality depending on what you work on. We support a live service that runs 24/7 and never stops, sometimes you will work a lot, but the company offers mandatory vacation time and even pays an yearly retreat to everyone. Depending on the role of course, it is not too hectic though, most people have a balanced routine

    * not a lot of direction or coaching on day to day which can be hard for junior roles. If you expect months of on boarding and lots of training, Riot is not the best. Generally new employees need to figure things out fast and know our product well, there is not a lot of hand holding. On the other hand people are very approachable at all levels so if you take initiative you will find what you need and learn very fast.

    Advice to Management

    * keep it up, let's maintain our strong culture even after we scale fast in size

    * spend more time with the different teams, they love to interact with you but many new employees haven't had many chances
