Riot Games, the maker of the popular multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends, has turned out to be a great place to work.
The company was named as No. 4 on the list of the top 25 tech companies to work for in 2013, based on annual research by Business Insider and Glassdoor.com. The latter includes ratings of companies by employees themselves. This is the first time that a game company has been included on the list alongside tech companies. The firms ahead of Riot are Riverbed Technology at No. 3, Guidewire at No. 2, and Facebook at No. 1.
Brandon Beck has a 100 percent positive rating from employees on Glassdoor.com, and the company’s overall rating is 4.4 out of 5.
One Riot employee said on Glassdoor.com, “Everyone here is immensely passionate about what they do, and if you aren’t learning something every day, you must be in the wrong office. The company takes ridiculously good care of us, and tries every step of the way to make sure we’re engaged culturally, intellectually and socially with the industry and each other. It’s by far the best place I’ve ever worked.”
