One of a kind job experience!

This was a one of a kind job experience. A lot of pros but then the cons would be management. Many people were put in manager roles with no experience.

Pros

Free food, fully stocked kitchens, company events

Cons

A lot of managers that showed favoritism and had no idea how to manage

Fun place to work

Riot will keep you busy but it is a fun place to work. They care about their employees and handled covid well by quickly sending folks home. They also provided everyone with 1k to help setup their wfh setup.

Unable to grow in company, unless willing to accept management's political views.

The long standing culture at Riot Games is one of misogyny, false wokeness, and "locker room talk". Over the years it has become a factory for managers with little to no experience who are hired based on their relationships to executives at the company to grow their resume while under performing in their role.

Pros

Free food, games on break

Cons

Company culture, management

Riot's not a place for everyone, but THE place for some

Riot's a unique company still catching up from an infrastructure standpoint from their massive expansion and success in the early 2010's. Being a part of that growth is challenging, but there's no better feeling of satisfaction of accomplishing your goals and making an impact in that environment, and an engaged player base. Riot is not for someone looking to coast for a little while, if you try to coast you'll stick out like a sore thumb.

Great working environment filled with passionate people

Everyone here is passionate about what they do. It's always easy to meet new people and start new conversations. Everyone here works hard and also knows very well how to balance that with good fun.

Don’t bother if you don’t breathe videogames

It doesn’t matter how exceptional you are at your craft:if gaming isn’t your heart and soul you will be shunned. Note: I like playing games but not for my first hour of the day at work, 2-3 hours a day in the afternoon, another hour of games on campus after eating there, then going home and paying for several more hours with Theo-Le you just played for 5 hours with during the work day every single day. It’s worse if you’re a girl there is a very specific mold they expect there

Agile company that learns from its mistakes

The culture is second to none and the desire to have a positive work environment and willingness to help employees grow in any area they want is what Riot is all about. But you better love games!

Comfort Zone

Many folks fall into a comfort zone which leads to complacency, as it’s impossible to get fired here. The same complacent managers are recycled year after year with no accountability for results.

Pros

Work Life balance

Cons

Lack of any manager accountability

Look for the helpers

Great place to work and learn new skills. Also a great place to build relationships with experts all over the world. Problem spaces are complex and vast and fun to work through with a collaborative team.

Fun environment for gamers

They allow employees to be themselves. Trouble is if one of them is very negative they don't stop them. That's both good and bad! It's fun getting free food and lattes!

Friendly environment with all you can eat

Cleaning before service starts and making sure everything is where it should be. Making sure products are stocked well and your'e area is clean and ready for service. food catering events would occur meaning helping handling food and attending events, parties/gatherings.

Pros

All you can eat, game room, free coffee

Cons

short breaks

Fun work place with poor management

I loved working here in the beginning. During my employment I had two managers who had no idea how to manage. There was also no room for growth. And there was only one raise during the time I was employed.

Pros

Free breakfast, lunch and dinner

Cons

Horrible management

Gaming Company with Gaming Culture

The company is trying to include more minorities and more women but it skews heavily male. Employees are expected to give 110% but playtime is also encouraged. Interview/hiring process is long and intensive. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with dedicated, smart employees who are passionate about delivering the best.

Pros

Great benefits, lots of perks, beautiful campus, smart and competent coworkers.

Cons

Lack of women in management roles.

A wonderful environment, but don't get too comfortable

Riot Games tries to create a laid back business culture, where colleagues can build trust and speak frankly with one another. With people acting like friends and playing games every day, it can be easy to forget that you're at work. Never forget that you are at work. There are supposed to be metrics and improvement plans to help employees meet and exceed expectations, but not all teams have that in place. If there's a perception that you're not delivering enough widgets, prepare for unceremonious termination.

Pros

All your needs are taken care of, the people are great

Cons

Pressure to stay in the office, for all hours.

If you're passionate about games its good, if you like having a life and being compensated for your skills, not so much

I took a pay cut to join Riot games, and while I enjoyed the experience overall, now that im more senior in my career, looking back there were faults. Compensation is horrible, especially within QA. Leadership is promoted beyond their skills and cannot properly mentor their reports you have to be a cliquey kiss up to succeed in this company

Pros

beer at meetings, subsidized dinners, good peers

Cons

horribad compensation, long work hours, cliquish people, leaders caught in scam

Manager

The people make this organization work -- not the leadership, not the broken processes (where they exist). It is the relationships that drive decisions and enable the company to do what it can. The interview process is a fair representation of what it's like to work there -- if you enjoy that process, you'll love working there. If you dislike it, then no amount of money will make the work experience better.

Cult

Yeah it was great at first...... The place is a cult, and I could not see until the ride was over. The company culture is lazy and sluggish. They have one product since they stole someone else's hit game.

Pros

Free Lunch

Cons

Work life balance is non existent
