I worked at Roblox full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

This is the most professional gaming company I have ever worked at, David, Keith, Matt everyone just oozes profesionnalism. None of that big ego stuff you find at other gaming companies, at Roblox people come to work to do their best and to be efficient at doing it.

The Roblox game environment is a 24x7 host solution and yet OT hardly ever occurs why? Because the system was engineered to be robust and scalable, and what is probably even more important the alert and notification system doesn't bug you at first sign of problems, it actually has some intelligence to it such that you only get paged when things are really suspect/bad.

Cons

Not sure if I should put it down as a 'con' but Roblox is still a young start-up their policies and benefits are not as elaborate as you will find at other companies.

Advice to Management

Keep going and kick some a..!
