    I worked at Infinity Ward full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    *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.

    Advice to 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Infinity Ward.

    Interview

    The entire process took around 1.5 months and felt like a huge drag. I was given an emailed test to do. I completed it in about 4 days, and after that, waited 2+ more weeks, went through another round of interview, then complete silence for 3 weeks. I sent them a polite follow up email every week, and were completely ignored. As an applicant that took out the time to do a test for them and was weeks into the interview process, one would appreciate some kind of response, even something as simple as, "We'll have the result in 3 weeks". But there was nothing. It was like an eternal wait.
    It was eventually after 3 weeks that I received a short email that the position has been filled. Despite the fact that it was a rejection to the job of my dreams, that short email was actually a huge relief that there will be no more waiting.
