    Pros

    Policies and procedures are set and make a lot of sense. Almost all departments are open to helping one another understand exactly what it is they do and how they need things done. In Production, there are a lot of good people in Associate Producer and Production Coordinator (Production Assistant at other companies) roles who work hard and know what they're doing. Work / Life balance is encouraged by most of upper management and in some cases Activision will work with you if you have special needs. Most teams are flexible with what hours their employees work, so earlier or later time schedules are often times approved.

    Cons

    Policies and procedures are often not followed. The good people are bled dry from chasing the carrot that gets dangled in front of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell employees the truth about why certain decisions were made. Also learn to apologize to employees, not just thank them behind plastic smiles.
