    Pros

    - Some of the most caring and thoughtful, passionate and skilled people I've ever worked with - Riot is built around a heavy focus on its people, it really cares about their comfort and does a lot to try to be a great working environment. (a lot of that isn't accessible during COVID-19, but the spirit is there. - Has made significant strides in addressing press-reported D&I challenges, but has more to do (as does everyone) - Really great products in League of Legends and VALORANT; some true world-class expertise. - If you're at Riot, you want to be on a game team: League of Legends, VALORANT, even Legends of Runeterra. Wild Rift is more painful potentially... IP/Creative is probably good too. You really want to heavily avoid anything relating to the central teams or "publishing". - This company has incredible potential, but see the cons section below as to why it's a problem

    Cons

    Riot is truly a place that struggles because it scaled too quickly and never figured out its leadership layer correctly. So, all the successes of the company are found in the part of the company that is valuable: GAMES. The current CEO, Nicolo is a good person, who ultimately cares a lot about the company and the employees, but doesn't have what it takes to lead. It's just a sad reality. He doesn't know how to create games (he never has done this), he doesn't know how to hold his publishing team accountable (he built it, it's pretty much all he's done in his career and so he doesn't know how truly terrible it is), he doesn't know how to prioritize or focus (his approach is always the biggest bets
