Featured Review

Former Employee - Localization project lead

I worked at Riot Games full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Visionary leadership. - Clear company values. - A common language among all employees - An "right at home" feel in any company office. - You are a trusted member of the organization right from... the start. - Lived feedback culture. - Great set of company perks. - Friendly and energetic office atmosphere.

Cons

- Hiring generals can lead to long winded meetings - Salary not combative in Dublin - High cost of living in Dublin - Stakeholder feedback on higher levels putting projects on hold which had been... in production for a long time, therefore fostering a risk averse perception in employees.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing.

Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I worked at Twitch full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great internal tooling, great culture, everyday is fun, tons of learning opportunities

Cons

Very slow and resistant to change. Some of those in power act like straight up frat bro’s. People talk trash behind each others backs

Advice to Management

Stop over indexing on metrics and status reports your subordinates just manipulate to deceive you, push the Ray Dalio principles, there is too much immaturity.
