It doesn't blow good air inside Activision Blizzard. The company has recently presented i profits of the last quarter, with record values, but at the same time is dealing with some protests moved by its employees.
According to a report by Bloomberg, Blizzard workers internally circulated a sheet to compare wages anonymously.
Blizzard also found in a 2019 survey that more than half of its staff are dissatisfied with their salaries. The company therefore attempted to correct the problem with wage increases and readjustments for some employees.
Dissatisfied with the results, employees began to monitor all the changes made, in order to measure the increase in pay. The results, according to the report, were well below what was expected. Some of the increases were less than 10%, particularly for those in customer service roles.
This news brings to mind the company's 2019 decision to lay off around 800 employees on the same day it announced it had posted new revenue records. The whole thing is even crazier if we also consider that the company rewards employees in "Honor Point", points that can be redeemed for cash or playtime on Battle.net.
