Reviews for Software Engineer in Riot Games

A company I loved and admired, but riddled with management woes

I honestly loved the advertised culture, but Riot has changed a lot in the past couple years. There is very little room to advance, and in general, the company doesn't seem to have a solid vision or strategy for where it wants to be in the next year or two. I feel that many of the leaders don't know how to enact policy or really help the organization evolve positively. I mentioned that Riot has changed a lot, but it hasn't been due to the leaders making the engineering organization better; it feels more like a slow erosion, where they try to maintain a status quo and often stifle any rumblings of change.


Lunch and dinner are fully subsidized for now, "Unlimited" PTO, Shared Success Plan


Limited growth opportunities, difficult to affect change, leaders preach a culture of feedback, but rarely display any effort to change.
