Associate Producer
in Santa Monica, CA

"Activision has a good culture, the teams get along and work together well. However IMO women producers are far and few in between with no EP positions. The recent remodel of open work area is not optimal for game development and publishing work. Also there seem to be a lot of upper management, and sometimes there are too many cooks in the kitchen."
