The evolution un-did my position causing my salary to be underneath the new low for Associate QA Analysts. During the QA salary corrections, they gave me $3 to help compensate. Before that I was a mid-level analyst making $19.97, less than what associate analysts were hired at. Irvine

7/31/2020 15:16:40Full Time EmployeeInsights Analyst$50.48/hourN/A: I started in January 2020I was headhunted by Blizzard and this was the lowest by 10-20% of my 4 offers, including offers from startups and other large game development companies, with the highest cost of living. I was told at the time that I was already at the top of my band but have not received any information on what that band actually is, and was later told that I would likely not receive a salary raise until I got a promotion because of this, but that I was unlikely to get a promotion any time soon because there is already "a long waitlist" of people waiting for promotions in the department.Irvine
