    Pros

    Decent food. The company mostly cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Not much better than any other gaming company. Leadership is top down, not transparent, and doesn't handle feedback well. Not a lot of perks to reflect company success.

    I have been working at Roblox full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Besides all the awesome perks and benefits, I would say the best part about Roblox is my team. We collaborate well with each other and my manager is always open for anything we have to talk about. I’ve also never grew so much in my career as I am with Roblox. I’ve worked for some at some popular companies before and Roblox makes work feel fun. As a whole, I feel Roblox cares for their employees and offers many opportunities to improve on career growth and your well being.

    Cons

    No cons at the moment.

    I have been working at Roblox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is one of many jobs that encourage you to bring in new ideas and not a turn-key solution, Roblox definitely took me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to open up to new technologies and new challenges to encourage learning and growth in my career. This is definitely a place to be at. Good team overall and chemistry on the Infra Operations team. remote, nice office, free meals, free snacks, and drinks are always welcome.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any so far.

    It is so great to hear that you've been bringing your ideas to share in tackling new challenges. Our teams often need to find solutions in uncharted territory, so learning and growth are fundamental to our success (and the free snacks help too).

    I have been working at Roblox full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a hard decision to leave my other job to join Roblox. Turned out to be a truly transformative place with smart, collaborative people to work with. Minimum bureaucracy. Managers care about people growth as well as getting s*** done. Executives visionary and approachable. Infrastructure came a long way. Huge impact made and being made. Tons of opportunities ahead.

    Cons

    Oftentimes too busy keeping the light on.
