    I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Probably the best place to work in the games industry in terms of compensation, job security, and work life balance. Good pay and benefits, unless you are in a support role. Fun culture. Talented and passionate workers, mostly gaming geeks.

    Cons

    The culture that Blizzard is famous for is slowly dying. "Every voice matters" no longer means company-wide input on games and testing, instead all games are developed in secret from anyone outside the development teams. "Commit to quality" appears to be going out the door, while financial considerations and development speed have become driving factors. Leadership in my department is nepotistic, so you're better off sucking up to the right person than being a high performer.

    Use to be a great company with great values and jobs opportunities, but those times are over.

    Activision is now ruling and Blizzard is not Blizzard anymore. Blizzard was a great place to be Activision/Blizzard is now just another "shareholders 1st" managed cie.

    I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time

    Pros

    - Extremely solid company culture that encourages individual passion and is generally very accepting of self expression. If you enjoy Blizzard games/stories/franchises or want to "embrace your inner geek" (as the core values state), then you'll fit in well - Culture fosters an environment where strong interpersonal relationships can be formed with others - The company Core Values actually mean something, and most employees stick to them as code - Cool and fun events both within your department and company wide - Exciting and meaningful projects where impact is prioritized - The company is taking several strides to address career growth

    Cons

    - Blizzard is in the process of evolving as a company, which leaves some uneasiness with employees - Internal communication of upcoming changes/major updates could be better communicated - Pay could be higher given the level of talent found at the studio

    Pros

    - amazing benefits - free swag and games - managers care about personal and career growth - everyone is a nerd - you can play games at work

    Cons

    I genuinely don't have any qualms about working here. This work environment has been much more encouraging and family like compared to any other I've been in. I started here as a contractor and was able to secure a full time position, and even now am encouraged to continue to grow.
