Benefits and Perks
Only a quarter of survey participants enjoy paid vacation days and paid sick time — a rather disappointing finding. Riot Games sponsors a 401(k) program, and almost all workers use this option to save for their retirement. The vast majority of workers receive health insurance, and most survey participants get dental coverage. The list of perks also includes a casual working environment, stock options, gym membership, and flexible hours.
