Do employees at places like nintendo get special benefits? I've heard that blizzard employees get blizzbucks but are there any special gaming company specific benefits that you enjoy? How much do you actually end up using these benefits?

- New / Eng Fo4jd7I have 5 friends in the game industry, and... no benefits can save those salaries and wlb.
- Rapid7 / Eng ikarusThey get benefits like working long hours with underwhelming pay. I know a dev that got a job offer at Blizzard. They were trying to convince him that hourly pay was better than salary because of all the overtime he would be doing. Which makes no sense, especially in California. Not sure if blizzbucks would be given out at 1 1/2 times during OT.

- Microsoft bigsixheroAt MSFT we get a discount on xbox live and a game pass for 3 months...lol.
People in xbox/store org actually get xboxes with dev accounts with every game enabled, though.
- Blizzard bucks are given once a year. There shitty honestly cause u can’t spend it on clothing so you can really only use it to buy MTX in our games or buy our games for a gift.
