Good people, fun atmosphere and my manager cares about us. Work life balance is good.
Not very innovative. Bad at tech because of lack of investment. So hard to get approval to do anything.5

You get to work on visually appealing and exquisite jobs. 'Work' and life balance are good.
•Communication between departments is at minimum if none existent at times. •Security attempts just make your job complicated and unproductive. •Someone always gets fired during the Christmas Holidays. •Managers just do meetings and lunches, nothing more. Well and Facebook. •There are more managers and bosses than actual workers, which causes for the little people (workers) to be buried in work and are taken for granted. •Employee Moral y always LOW •Inconsistency, on everything! •Its funny how they hire people that don't really care for the product and decline those who live and breath the games.5

Work/Life balance is good Comp is good in certain groups Hasbro 401k plan is stellar if you're able to contribute
Health benefits are awful, with massive out-of-pocket costs Vacation time is a bit low for the area and industry Company culture is very weak Career development is extremely difficult8

Excellent Work/life balance (if on the right team). Great culture, especially for fans of WotC products.
Confusing leadership decisions, disconnection with fans, regular layoffs. Difficulty advancing.1

Great swag Interesting IP if you like D&D or Magic Good work life balance
Very little diversity in leadership Old school management style Very little promotion opportunity Agenda around D&I not taken seriously Will try to lowball employees hired (ask for level and pay band in interviews)7

They have work life balance down in that no one really works that hard in comparison to other IT jobs.
The place is full of passive aggressive politics and back stabbing. This is encouraged by management and leads to a culture avoidance and CYA that makes doing your job very difficult.5

Efforts are being made to improve employee culture. Lots of smart people and fairly good work/life balance. You get lots of product.
Medical insurance offered is expensive and pay is on the low end. Would like to see more women at the top as it tends to feel like the good ol' boys club. It can be political and senior leaders aren't always on the same page and it trickles down.4

Work life balance is good at this company with a lot of products given for free to all full time employees. WotC is backed by Hasbro as its child company. Free soda and some amenities. About 15 days paid vacation days and 3 personal days from the first year.
Pay is a little below average. I'm sure the company is going through a change for better but a few arounds of layoffs happened all of a sudden this year.5
