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

    Pros

    Work/life balance is outstanding. I'm used to put 60 hour weeks routinely, but at Roblox I work normal business hours. No outsourcing. The founders built the company with a thought that they want to enjoy working there and want others to feel the same. They've wonderfully succeeded. People really have fun at work. Ideas are encouraged. Management always looks to optimize feedback channels, so they can hear everyone. Startup with no strings attached. Greatly profitable, currently growing at outstanding rate. Talented people around, great technologies to work with. Great medical & FSA benefits

    Cons

    The office is in an old building. A/C's are noisy, you can see lots of odd piping going through the rooms. C-management keeps their grip on all decisions made. Sometimes you may find it tough to work with them. Though, you feel respected anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. So far it looks awesome.

    Pros

    Future outlook looks very good. Not much pressure from direct management as long as you do your job well. You will work on something unique that users love.

    Cons

    Even though it's located at the heart of San Mateo downtown the office looks a bit outdated for a tech company. It's difficult to push through ideas.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more strict management :)

    I have been working at Roblox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great thriving office with a lot of creative energy and passion. Everyone is extremely talented and open to sharing or helping. The company really values and support the people that pursue their passions and provide feedback. Management is also very good at acknowledging good performance/highlights. It's occupying a very exciting spot in gaming where its leveraging a huge catalog of content in conjunction with cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    With such a supportive environment, there are occasions where you really have to speak up to be heard. This may be difficult for people who are a little more soft spoken or timid.

    Advice to Management

    Career and personal goals usually fall off the radar mid quarter as work loads pick up and things get placed on the back burner.

    "Great place to work at."

    Pros

    All kinds of free snacks, including ice cream, surrounded by different dev kits, helpful teammates and good management. Can work on my own side project when the main tasks are done.

    Cons

    The company outlook can be improved and the building is old. Should clean up the workplace if possible. WFH is impossible.

    Advice to Management

    We should move to a better place when the company is bigger and has more revenues.

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

    Pros

    Free snacks are all I can think of.

    Cons

    High turnover rate
    Salary is not competitve with the cost of bay area living
    HR does nothing and looks the other way when complaints are made
    Very old building with bad A/C and leaky ceilings
    Poor facilities management
    Managers will throw associates under the bus when they can't handle their own job or stress
    Encouragement for growth is more talk then acted upon
    A lot of great hard-working employees have been let go due to manager egos
    CEO gives other people credit for the work you perform
    Healthcare coverage is not the best

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to the managers you put in charge of your departments. Pay your employees fairly for the work they perform regardless of their job title. Surveys mean nothing if you don't intend to fix the things employees are unhappy about. The fact that most of your company consists of people who have not been there more than a few years should tell you something.

    I have been working at Roblox full-time

    Pros

    Working on the future of play and entertainment. Great people. Big vision. Accelerating growth. Interesting market. Leverage from user generated content.

    Cons

    We are toolmakers more than content creators. Not the best place for people who want to be making games, unless they are interested in building the tools, infrastructure and environment where the ROBLOX dev communicty can build great games.
