Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Activision gearbeitet (Über 3 Jahre)
Strong culture, can-do attitude, in some parts of the company things get done quickly. Lots of really smart people working there.
Lack of planning and poor collaboration with studios leads to a lot of stress and just-in-time work. It will grind you up and spit you out. Most likely you're in for a long commute.
Rat an das Management
It's said that most people at Activision are either on their way to -- or just arriving from -- agencies. This, plus the relentless calendar of each new COD means that there can be a lack of long-term investment sometimes, or a lack of planning. It's great that the studios are autonomous entities, but when it comes time to sell the game, you'll sell a lot more if you collaborate better with the studios. It felt way too antagonistic. Not just the stress of the deadlines snippyness, but sometimes goals that were at opposition and no incentive to work together.
Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2015 bei Activision (El Segundo, CA (Vereinigte Staaten von Amerika)).
My interview was held at their El Segundo location on the 7th in their Pitfall conference room. I was interviewed by 3 managers all at once.They asked fairly normal questions and I did not feel intimidated they made sure you were comfortable. The only thing was during the course of the interview and even listed in the job description they did not state you would not be hired directly through the company, instead it's through a temp agency call Volt Information Sciences. It takes forever to get hired within the company. The wait time to receive the offer was about 3 weeks. I was laid off after 7 months due to "budgets cuts" all they did was change the job title from Outreach Specialist to Customer Service Representative. All in all it was fun while it was lasted but their management is terrible and they are a bit unorganized most of the time.
