    I have been working at Riot Games full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Player Focused: Every decision and detail at Riot is made from the perspective of the player. Everyone at Riot is a huge gamer and loves core games which I love.

    - Houses the best talent in the games industry: So fortunate to be surrounded by peers from every discipline that are best in class. I'm constantly learning from everyone around me.

    - Constantly getting better: Everyone here wants to constantly improve - we know we could always be better at what we do so pushing ourselves and stretching for difficult to achieve goals makes this a motivating place to work.

    - Great long term career: Many of my peers have been at Riot for 5+ years and I feel like we're still just beginning and have a long way to go. We're only one game in and it's already awesome.

    Cons

    - Company is scaling quickly: Not necessarily a con, but you'll need to be adaptable and interested in learning and growing to be successful at Riot. Growing from 60 people to 1500 comes with a lot of challenges, so understanding your own strengths and weaknesses, and having career goals goes a long way to adapting to the company as it matures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on keeping the culture awesome as we scale! Riot makes amazing experiences for players and it's a great place to work - let's keep it that way as we grow.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Riot Games.

    Interview Details

    Riot requested me to contact them after my portfolio review at GDC. I scheduled a phone interview soon afterwards, and eventually got the on-site interview. The on-site was several hours long including a lunch interview and three consecutive interviews with the team I was to be joining. I was very nervous but all the interviews were very casual and pretty fun conversations. After a week or so I received news of my offer.
