How can we relax after this?

If we are having layoffs with numbers as good as they are, what's going to happen when we actually see drops in profit, not just "unsatisfactory growth?" Also, how are we supposed to attract the best talent if the word gets around about such business... —  read more

When will we know?

My husband works at Blizzard, and he's been a nervous wreck since the announcement. I think saying major layoffs are coming and not giving any details for days afterwards is unnecessarily cruel. What's the point of prolonging the anticipations and... —  read more

So mad

I guess this is what happens when record results achieved by the company do not translate to record bonuses for the executives. How dare those who helped bring in these profits also take away from them by getting paid for their work??? This is just... —  read more

You think they'll target older employees?

Not laid off but left on my own in 2012

Used to work there, it was cool, most of the time. It’s very fast paced, sometimes it’s nuts… There is no enough support given to anybody to meet the deadlines…. The execs know this but they play the game – they encourage the rumor mill, oftentimes... —  read more

So much for my dream job

I haven't been with Blizzard for a full year yet, and the way things are looking right now I won't be here long enough to see my first anniversary. I was so happy to land this job - I left a really good position in another company for it. And now it... —  read more

2016 Minnesota Layoffs at Activision

customer service

activision pays really low for customer services and they lay off all the time and it’s bad to be customer service here - tools are not reliable… as a side note, remember, taking calls all day is draining in every sense, you get tired quickly – and... —  read more

You guys make some of my favorite games, I really hate to hear what's going on. We all know it's all on Activision. Not sure if anybody is going to read this, but I wish every one of you good luck this week. I'm sure all of you will have no problems... —  read more

Revenue is down

Not that I'm gloating... I'm just worried this might lead to even more layoffs down the line... I guess we have to wait and see... I hate that Blizzard is now a part of this mess... —  read more
