I have been working at Infinity Ward full-time

Pros

The compensation and benefits. Freedom to give feedback interdepartment. Location has a fair cost of living for the income. Project has breadth and depth, thus interesting challenges. Free food. Relaxed feel when not crunching.

Cons

The leadership does not seem confident of decisions made. Lacking clear direction in early projects. (Mostly art, some design) Lacking communication of vision thus lacking buy-in from implementers. Micro managed to some degree in the single player design department. Long crunches last year of each project.

Advice to Management

Wish directors have higher CoD IQ and tastes that's more in line of core audience. At the same time, should understand what is tiring to the audience and what needs advancement. Better interdepartmental planning to share assets, smart not brute forcing production.

    I have been working at Infinity Ward full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The perks are great, you get free food everyday. So if that is more important to you then actually working for a company that you can possibly have room for advancement then great.

    Cons

    The management at this company is a joke. They pass you and ignore you and look down at you like your a piece of trash. They forget that without you they wouldn't have their ridiculous salary for doing nothing. I've seen the same 4 people move up and around this company but yet if you do good work and aren't part of a select few, you will not go anywhere. You aren't even acknowledged when you do a continuous fantastic job compared to those who are moving up. The pay scales are all over the place. I've been a senior for about 6 yrs but then you have newer people with less experience and less shipped AAA titles that are buying million dollar houses and super cars. Meanwhile, just chug away at your desk with your head down. Great morale boost.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring people fit for the job that know the core audience. There is actually zero direction and the art team has to define the looks of the level themselves.
