    Pros

    it is a dream job, testing unreleased games and getting paid. Activision has the international and friendly environment, easy-going colleagues and great benefits.

    Cons

    In every busy summer, there must be a shift work without extra payment. It would influence your daily life, such as cannot enjoy dinner and comfortable night with your family. For overtime work on Saturday, it's paid normally.

    Advice to Management

    I think small daily welfare (snacks and fruits) and reasonable payment for shift work and overtime work is necessary. Hope it will be improved shortly.

    Pros

    Fun place to work if you enjoy playing video games. Decent perks but depends on the group. Lots of work but you learn a lot in the process. Sink or swim attitude.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, pleasing egos on a constant basis. Not great work like balance, again depends on the group. Either you deliver or you dont from day one.
