    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward gearbeitet

    Pros

    Free lunch (dinner also if you work late).

    Kontras

    -VERY low pay
    -Poor leadership
    -Slow Advancement
    -No one that is a part of leadership cares about you as an individual or your career path.
    -Cliquey
    -HR department lacking coordination, sympathy, and initiative

    Rat an das Management

    Investing more into your already hardworking employees is way better than hiring a bunch of contractors every 6-12 months just so you can pay them a low wage. Perks are never better than benefits.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward gearbeitet

    Pros

    Salary, daily great free lunch (and dinner when working overtime, which is pretty much all the time but varies from department to department, and bonus.

    Kontras

    Don't look to HR for any kind of help. Longest hours I've experienced. Large company so some leads better qualified than others. Culture that rewards dishonesty, bullying and more.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to your developer's complaints and take them seriously.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward gearbeitet

    Pros

    *Nice facilities with big kitchens and a gym onsite. *Free lunches, dinners and snacks. *Lots of free swag and frequent parties/events.

    Kontras

    *12+ hour days everyday for months on end. *Directors and leads that fight publicly amongst each other. *Lack of a clear vision for the project *Call of Duty is uninspiring to work on.

    Rat an das Management

    It’ll be impossible for IW to make a great game with its current leadership. Establish clear roles/responsibilities and put an end to the fighting and undermining

    Talented employees can work anywhere they want in the current business landscape. Treat your employees with respect, pay them fairly, stop requiring overtime, and make sure you have qualified leaders to run your departments.

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward gearbeitet (Über 3 Jahre)

    Pros

    Most coworkers are super friendly and helpful. You'll make friends and learn a lot as long as you don't actively try to avoid people. There are plenty of sub-communities around playing board, card, video, and rec room games at lunch and doing things on the weekends like extreme sports, regular sports, karaoke, bar-hopping, etc. Catered lunches, lots of swag, fun (and fairly frequent) parties. Then there's the standard stuff like decent health insurance and vacation.

    Kontras

    Pay raises are minimal, my rent increases at a much faster rate! Get a good wage going in; they won't do a proper cost-of-living adjustment unless you fight like hell and/or threaten to leave. Crunch isn't fun. Last project we had 12+ hr days every day for about half a year (felt like eternity) and some departments did it for much longer. Even normal days you're at work for 9+ hours because someone decided we need to 'make up' that lunch hour now. Most people don't even take an hour for lunch. What happened to the 9 to 5? RIP Dolly Parton.

    Rat an das Management

    The studio has a lot going for it: cool people, cool perks, etc. But if you don't offer industry standard wages to long-term employees you initially nabbed cheap, you'll lose them. And don't make them fight for it, industry standard should be standard. Also, don't add crunch to the schedule, avoid it at all costs! Happier workers do better work and last longer.

    Pros

    Lots of perks, especially for gamers, and great environment for FPS game development with people who know their stuff. Decent health benefits.

    Kontras

    Poor work-life balance. Mistakes from higher ups affect everyone negatively. Friction between leads. Located in the crappiest part of the Valley.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward

    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.

    Kontras

    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.

    Rat an das 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.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Infinity Ward (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    The perks are great, you get free food everyday. So if that is more important to you then actually working for a company that you can possibly have room for advancement then great.

    Kontras

    The management at this company is a joke. They pass you and ignore you and look down at you like your a piece of trash. They forget that without you they wouldn't have their ridiculous salary for doing nothing. I've seen the same 4 people move up and around this company but yet if you do good work and aren't part of a select few, you will not go anywhere. You aren't even acknowledged when you do a continuous fantastic job compared to those who are moving up. The pay scales are all over the place. I've been a senior for about 6 yrs but then you have newer people with less experience and less shipped AAA titles that are buying million dollar houses and super cars. Meanwhile, just chug away at your desk with your head down. Great morale boost.

    Rat an das Management

    Try hiring people fit for the job that know the core audience. There is actually zero direction and the art team has to define the looks of the level themselves.

    Pros

    Fantastic environment, highly competitive salary and benefits. Incredibly talented and passionate group of people in the industry!
    Amazing project to work on with some of the minds that invented the most popular franchise in the entertainment history: Call of Duty! Fun work place with lots of amenities, parties and outdoor activities organization. Great technology to work with and ability to contribute to.

    Incredible sense of 'family' within everybody in the company from developers to high management. It's a company that believe in actions and not in mere words and talents will always be rewarded anytime it deserve. Great sense of justice and everybody share a strong vision and knowledge.

    Kontras

    Long hours are needed during the last period but no surprise when you are working for such a big and well know franchise!

    Rat an das Management

    You are just amazing, best managers in the industry!
