    I have been working at Infinity Ward full-time

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits. Freedom to give feedback interdepartment. Location has a fair cost of living for the income. Project has breadth and depth, thus interesting challenges. Free food. Relaxed feel when not crunching.

    Cons

    The leadership does not seem confident of decisions made. Lacking clear direction in early projects. (Mostly art, some design) Lacking communication of vision thus lacking buy-in from implementers. Micro managed to some degree in the single player design department. Long crunches last year of each project.

    Advice to Management

    Wish directors have higher CoD IQ and tastes that's more in line of core audience. At the same time, should understand what is tiring to the audience and what needs advancement. Better interdepartmental planning to share assets, smart not brute forcing production.

    Interview

    Discussed to setup an interview with department heads, never heard from them again. Said they would be in touch week after, never ever heard anything. Tried to reach out, ignored my email with silence. Extremely unprofessional, I will never work for this company in my life.
