Given all of the stuff that came out about the cube crawls, the horrid sexual harassment at the Blizzard offices, and everything else in the lawsuit...I absolutely would understand any worker not wanting to return to that situation. Plus, the world has shown how effectively they can work from home. Dragonflight is probably the best WoW expansion in quite some time and that was done pretty much fully remote.Stuff like this just makes me glad I don't work at Blizzard, which is amazing considering how long it was my dream company to work for. But the corporate goons just don't care for the workers and it shows in their policies.
Funny, if companies actually made employees take a MyersBriggs test, they would find out there are lumps of people that actually don't need or even want in-person collaboration. I also feel sorry for anyone that thinks working 5 days a week is a good idea. I would rather live on the street than work for a company that is not 4x10s. Automatic 3 day weekends and holidays making it a 4 day weekend is the bomb. As to the argument that WFH enables people to be lazy and not work... I've seen people go to work and do nothing all day, they are called managers, and they have nothing to do but make bad ideas real until a deadline approaches.
It seems like the CEO is trying to run this entire company into the ground.
The amount of bootlicking in these comments is unbelievable *chefs kiss*
Good luck trying to keep your employees in 2023 if they're expected to be full time on the office. I'd personally gladly quit my job to continue working from home (doesn't have to be full time, but like 50%), even if I'd get paid substantially less.
Ah yes, everyone loves a pointless commute and sitting in mind numbing traffic every day to go to an office to do the job they were peacefully doing at home...
If blizz can't afford to keep the building, they should get rid of it.
i dont understand why
They don't learn their lessons
