I have been working at Bungie full-time (More than 3 years)
Bungie supports and embraces individuals creativeness. Your opinion is valued even if you disagree with individuals. This is really a company that looks for and embraces people that are self-motivated and are willing to interact with other teams and push the boundaries of the game.
The growth at Bungie is great. We have reviews every 6 months these are peer reviews and if you are performing above what your level and you are working hard you can be promoted. I do not know many companies that promote people every six months but Bungie is one of them.
The work life balance is great I work 8 - 9 hours a day 5 days a week. I have only had to crunch a couple times and even when crunching it was like 10 hour days for a week or two.
Bungie has some of the best benefits I have ever seen in the industry they go well above and beyond when it comes to keeping their employees happy.
Bungie also has performance bonuses and profit sharing this means every 6 months you will get one or the other this can range from a 3k - 9k.
It tends to take too much time to get approval from the higher ups to proceed with something and this tends to slow down production and leads to some crunch.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing but push on the higher ups to make decisions faster.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bungie (Savannah, GA (US)) in April 2017.
It was a very informal portfolio review more than it was an interview. The representatives were very casual and funny and offered lots of advice on how I could make my portfolio better. I actually did most of the talking.
