    I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Surrounded by some of the most talented and intelligent individuals in tech, art, and creative. - Tons of opportunities to learn and grow. - Really competitive salary (still tough to survive in LA if you're not an engineer, but above the average for creative roles in LA). - Amazing campus with free breakfast, lunch, and dinner; free full coffee bar; PC Bang; VR Room; and more. - Fun events on campus. - Lots of small perks like RP stipend, reimbursement for games every month, wellness, massage discount, on-site massages, free yoga classes, etc. - A unique ability to find and carve out niche roles that really interest you. If you want to do a job, just do it. - Work-life-balance isn't bad depending on what you do. It depends on you, your team, and your job.

    Cons

    - Happiness is team dependent. If you're on a team with inefficient management, your experience can be really unenjoyable. - Salaries are low if you're not in engineering. Los Angeles is really expensive, and if you're not in tech you can forget ever buying a home or renting super close to the office. - Things take a really long time. - Riot can be an echo chamber. Everything happens in a bubble and it's hard sometimes to be the dissenting voice. - There are people still in positions of power who have harassed individuals, blocked career growth and projects, and created unsafe work environments. - Talent (HR) is ineffective. There have been numerous cases of clear violations that I've witnessed that have gone completely ignored. - Lack of transparency when it comes to career progression, salary bands, and areas for growth.

    Pros

    Great environment for collaboration, treat artist really well. Food and drinks provided everyday, as well as other wellness programs.

    Some factions of the company aren't open to new opinions from new artist. Knowledge in certain areas of cg/vfx (depending on department) aren't well thought out before venturing out to do cinematic s.

    I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    In pockets you can still find really talented passionate and dedicated people

    Cons

    In response to the corporate controversy, Riot had made some great changes and some terrible ones. Riot's executive leadership now has a sizable group who do not care about players, and have been setting the example that not caring is a perfectly acceptable stance to have. Riot may be the most player focused 3000 person gaming company out there, but we are no longer the most player focused company. And it's not even close. On top of that, Riot has greatly slowed down due to needing Central approval for an embarrassing amount of simple every day tasks.
