Activision Blizzard Employee
in Santa Monica, CA

"Harassing environment, overly lean, overworked, high criticism, extreme micro-management to the point of bullying, did not foster good relations. Unskilled manager & supervisor, unprepared to lead caused confusion, distress and mistakes. No work-life balance, with holidays and weekends interruptions. Staff FORCED to work long hours and BARRED from leaving the office without authorization (even if the normal 8 hours/day had long come and gone). encountered. A case for the LABOR Dept."
