    I worked at Riot Games as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture and work life balance, intelligent people, extremely passionate about gaming and product development, driven and ambitious. Furthermore, great pay on par with top tech companies.

    Cons

    gaming during office hours can be distracting and slow the progress of deliverable development. no clear-cut promotion path, many managers by title but without true managerial experience (i.e., no direct reports).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop a better model/structure for career development paths as the company continues to scale

    Senior Development Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Riot Games.

    Interview Details

    By far the most awkward interviews I've ever experienced and an unacceptably disorganized interview process. Not only do months lapse between interviews, but no one seems to be on the same page with anything and the entire organization appears to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

    I've been around the block a bit through my career, and I've never witnessed such odd interview practices and delayed timelines. Further, those in management roles at this company who interview you repeatedly claimed that all they do every single day is interview people; so who's actually managing the company and their employees? Scary, to say the least.

    I am passionate about League of Legends, so I believe that's what ultimately led to a potential with Riot, but I took another position without hesitation after seeing the mess first hand.
