    Je travaille chez Infinity Ward à temps plein

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

    Inconvénients

    - Like anywhere, sometimes you will have to put in some extra hours if you're missing a dead line, but it’s not unrealistic.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep listening to your team. Don't settle for average.

    Avantages

    Fair pay, very competent co-workers, good company perks

    Inconvénients

    Stress, Crunch, Incompetent studio leadership, Poor project planning, Sociopath studio leadership, no actual studio identity as studio heads constantly rotate through Activision executives and high senior level turnover.

    Conseils à la direction

    Remove studio heads from the company unless they receive training for how to make a game without forcing employees to crunch for two years.

    Avantages

    Free lunch (dinner also if you work late).

    Inconvénients

    -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

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

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

    Avantages

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

    Inconvénients

    *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.

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.

    Conseils à la direction

    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.

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

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