Mostly great people, unfocused company
Associate Producer (Former Employee) – Santa Monica, CA – January 3, 2019
The Activision work experience is an exercise is cognitive dissonance. At the personal level, you're surrounded by people who are kind, helpful, smart, and talented. However, its corporate infrastructure and mechanisms are beyond bureaucratic and opaque – its culture and ability to adapt to the quickly-changing gaming landscape is nonexistent, and has been reflected in its market performance as of late. It has survived so far because its business instincts are top-notch – if it could marry those to a more agile and flexible development structure, it would be fine.
