Amazing work campus
Blizzard has a top notch facility, on site cafe, food trucks, gym, yoga, massage, volleyball court, basketball court, continuing education, library for digital and print media, and doctor visits.
Their culture is super laid back but at the same time everyone puts their 110% forward.

abusive
Blizzard does not care about their employees. They are one of a number of companies who treat people like equipment. They're also the kind of company to judge people by superficial demographics instead of merit or character. They don't care about people, which is a problem because the company and the customers are all people. At the end of the day, that's all there is.

exciting
I was interviewed on Skype for the job as a Concept Artist and got selected for a short term job. I was part of a team of of 18 people.
I got a lot of experience working with such a popular studio we have.

Productive and fun workplace its the video game industry
I really enjoyed the culture of the job as it fit who I am especially with one of their core values of "Embrace Your Inner Geek" which is to be yourself and that is something I think is important that we all have lives outside our work and to remember many people have similar interests and its not a negative thing.

Good environment but no opportunity for growing
Any special events, traininigs, or opportunities offered by Blizzard are only to those that are permanent employees not contractors. Meeting qouta is strictly pushed and those not meeting it are at risk of getting laid off.
Pros
Good food, nice coworkers, good pay

Incredible culture, incredible people, and always a new challenge!
Blizzard has always been one to put culture at the forefront of what they do. By allowing, and acknowledging, that every single employee brings something unique to the table, Blizzard has always been a place where sharing ideas and promoting open communication comes easy. This is the driving factor for me staying with the company for such an extended period of time.

As for the next best thing? It's their ability to never accept the status quo as the norm. Blizzard is always looking for ways to raise the bar for both the employee and customer facing sides of the business. This has lead to a workplace where the ability to adapt to change and consistently learn & grow is crucial to success. There is not a day that goes by where the job doesn't provide a new challenge or experience.

Great company to work for, care about their employees, work/life balance is great.
Blizzard is a very good company to be at, the experience gained is invaluable and they deeply care about their employees and communities. Managers give their team room to flex and be themselves. Hardest part about blizzard is that while they try to promote within, moving around different teams is hard and there aren't a lot of programs supporting that culture, so to move up, it's likely that you must leave for that experience.

Fun place to work but doesn't pay
Working at Blizzard can be a double edged sword. It is a fun place to work, but you will not make near what your peers make outside the company. Blizzard recognizes this, but just consider it a part of working for them.

Time spent working for people who hate you.
Blizzard has inside political ideologies, if they find out you don't fit their world view they will attempt to manage you out, if that fails they let you sit in stagnation with no opportunity to move up or transfer to other departments.

Good benefits otherwise. Fun co-workers. Clueless managers who are obscenely out of touch.

Activision screwed up a good company when they bought Blizzard.
I had heard about how great it was to work for Blizzard for years from a friend of mine that worked there. Unfortunately for me, by the time I got there Activision had already sunk it's claws into Blizzard. Basically, the Activision bean counters took over and turned a good company with a positive soul into just another company without a soul.

Cool place to work, but you work for less.
Everyone wants to work at Blizzard, which means, they do not have to pay as much to get employees. It is a cool place to work, but on the downside, team inclusion can be difficult, depending on the personalities you work with. This is regardless of your race/gender/preferences. HR is poor at helping employees with complaints.
Pros
Occasional free lunches, bonuses, great work environment
Cons
Poor pay, Activision, game teams only respected teams

Highly Recommend, but very Situational
Within Blizzard, there are many different groups and sub-groups. Many of them hold very different dynamics, but overall, Blizzard is a great place to work.

Great people. Tough work load.
Very meeting heavy and poor work/life balance. People are amazing to work with and the culture is enjoyable. Lots of perks provided but tough to take advantage when you work all the time.

A Fine Place for Ambitious People
Blizzard is a fine place for outstanding people. The atmosphere is "implicitly competitive" -- relaxed and welcoming, but hunger for praise is rewarded.

Blizzard is the most supportive and stable environments in the video game industry.


Some disciplines are under-represented at a team level. Support for cultural diversity is strong.
Pros
Growth Encouraged, Nerd Culture, Diversity, Casual Workplace
Cons
Stress, Transparency, Strategy
