Employee testimonials on the company website leave stellar reviews, but testimonials on sites like Glassdoor and Indeed are mixed. While reviews from current and past employees generally seem to praise the company, many also have genuine concerns. It seems that Wizards of the Coast has been a great company to work for due to their work-life balance, the fun and relaxed work environment, and the exciting projects employees work on. However, many testimonials report that the company is currently experiencing a shift in culture, especially due to management changes. Another voiced concern is the prevalence of multiple layoffs, especially around the holidays. Taking everything into account, the reviews trend towards the positive, and many seem to passionately enjoy their work for Wizards of the Coast.
