    I have been working at Roblox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great benefits, cooperating with staff is amazing due to the company welly training them. Also when I get a project finished, everyone gets to collaborate, and get to share their own opinions.

    Cons

    During a project, we have to put up hours of trial and error because of size references, different likings, and color matching with the product.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a great opportunity if you are well at cooperating, knowing your surroundings, and other people's likings.

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

    Pros

    Nice, smart people. Haven't run across any jerks.
    Cool product making a positive impact.
    Clear vision from top leadership about what we're trying to do.
    Unlimited PTO
    Generous pay
    I really like my manager

    Cons

    Code, tools, processes all old. A lot of time lost on everything but development (fighting with tools, trying to understand old code, etc).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in infrastructure. We are moving at half speed (or worse) because we are saddled with so much technical debt.

    I have been working at Roblox full-time

    Pros

    A lot of snacks in the kitchen. A lot to learn and explore. Co-workers are all very bright and hardworking. If you able to last in the companies for years, means you have been delivering.

    Cons

    Work is extremely fast paced and demanding. Have to deliver result on a daily basis. Be prepared to stay late if there's emergency, even on weekend. Recruiter low balled my salary, even though I have close to 20 years of experience. My salary is lower than my previous job.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were nice enough.
