      Pros

      Allow you to take courses to learn. Coworkers generally are some of the best and brightest in the industry. Work life balance is great at this level

      Cons

      Blizzard much like all entertainment/tech companies hire you under a contract for a year or “whenever the project ends” which is a sneaky way to say you’re full time without any benefits. This is a loophole in our current hiring system that’s being exploited and unfortunately to work at a Fortune 500 company you might just have to accept it.
