    I have been working at Riot Games full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Riot is a special place. It is obviously not perfect. But the pros still far outweigh the cons. - Trust of the whole team to test and innovate - Understanding the difficult times we are living during the pandemic - Freedom of communication with anyone in the office, without the need for bureaucracy (the problem is finding time on the agenda) - Values ​​its employees, either with payment or with "perks", team building actions etc - There is a genuine desire for everyone to evolve and work better

    Cons

    - You will work a lot. Really. It was worse, but there are "unspoken" expectations of certain teams so that you are available 24/7 - The diversity in the company and in the BR office leaves much to be desired, but it was worse - Contractors, who work as much or more than Rioters, are often treated as second-class citizens. Not with insults or lack of respect, but the difference is clear with "lack-of-bonuses" (but there is a genuine desire to change that) - The company quickly loses itself in the amount of meetings, with that you don't feel productive, just jumping from meeting to meeting (yes, many times it could be an email)

    I have been working at Riot Games

    Pros

    Riot is a company that deeply honors it’s mission of being the most player focused company in the world. The employees, endearingly called Rioters, are some of the most passionate, brilliant people I’ve ever worked with. I’m in a perpetual state of knowledge gaining and sharing every day that I show up. The authenticity at Riot continues to astound me. Every day I’m encouraged to give and ask for feedback, and to be uniquely myself which is seen as one of my greatest contributions. IMPACT. No matter what group you’re a part of you have tremendous impact of creating the future in gaming and entertainment which is really special. Play. Riot values hard work and commitment just as much as they do play. There are several events throughout the year dedicated to fostering a player’s spirit, and the campus is designed to encourage all forms of play at any time. Benefits and pay are really great. Riot’s compensation structure is unparalleled for the industry and the benefits extend beyond medical/ dental/ vision to really capture unique areas of our personal lives.

    Cons

    External perception. As a minority (in more than one spectrum) I was cautious about beginning a career at Riot based on some of the articles I read that depicted the culture. I am so glad that I met with other Rioters and asked honest questions to receive honest answers. My experience has negated all of the false narratives that I read about prior to joining Riot. Work/ life balance. More of a personal issue than a Riot issue to be fair. When you’re surrounded by people that are so committed to delivering the next great thing for players it can be tough to unplug for self care.
