    Not actually remote

    Pros

    None, this job isn't remote

    Cons

    I just wanted to post this because I feel like my time was wasted and maybe I'll be able to save someone else from wasted efforts. Don't advertise that you are hiring for remote positions and then turn around and tell me it's actually hybrid. The only WFH days are Mondays and Fridays right now, but Tuesday-Thursday, you are expected to be in the office.

    The people rule. The leadership and culture do not.

    Pros

    Compensation package, including outstanding medical and generous bonus structure. People, Riot attracts extremely talented and passionate individual contributors.

    Cons

    Riot's senior leadership (C-suite) is disconnected from the rest of the organization, particularly production. Communication is gated, and senior leaders do not take/receive feedback from lower levels, including product leaders and senior management. Senior leadership is prone to overruling experts and gatekeeping creative control. Senior leadership does not prioritize the players/audiences experience, but does expect others to do so to a punitive degree. Workplace culture at Riot is ultimately abusive. COVID policyies are negligent and rigid. While mid and low level employees have made great commitments to reducing Burnout, leadership is inflexible on timetables to a degree that forces a constant burn. Likewise, mid and low level employees consistently demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion that is, at best, of no sincerely demonstrated interest to those in control.

    Pros

    Nice people for the most part. The work life balance is usually good, but depends on the team. I find the work I do to be really interesting and impactful. Comp is comparable or better than most places (asides for FAANG/MANGA).

    Cons

    For SWEs, a lot of people complain that the comp isn't comparable to FAANG. However, the compensation is still better than your medium sized tech company. From my point-of-view, the quality-of-life I have working at Riot vs a FAANG is well worth that trade off. ymmv The organization is very chaotic. Riot is far from a fine-oiled machine. The can make it a bit frustrating because it feels like everything is out of your control. On the positive side, this also means there are a lot of easy wins in addressing disfunctions within the organization.
