      Pros

      Activision Blizzard is an incredibly diverse company with some of the most world renowned, enduring global franchises. I love the opportunities in the organization to explore the many moving parts, and participate in cross-enterprise dialogues. Internal mobility is promoted, meaning career paths are not limited to the BU at which you being your ATVI journey. I also want to note the extraordinary job the company has done during these recent challenging times. The support from the HR and Benefits departments has truly been special, providing an enormous amount of tools and resources to the entire employee population. This attention to their people during an especially unique circumstance has made the organization standout in my mind in comparison to its contemporaries.

      Cons

      An inherent aspect of working for a Fortune 500 company can be the difficulty to connect with colleagues around the vast infrastructure of the organization. While ATVI has many systems in place to encourage this type of engagement, it can be challenging to understand the cohesive global strategy. That said, I joined at the onset of the pandemic, which added an extra layer of complexity through the removal of in-person networking and socialization.
