Employees Rate the WOTC Work Experience--and it Ain't Pretty...

In a thread that talked about the latest round of WOTC layoffs (hey, at least they waited until a month after Christmas this time!), someone linked to a site called the Glass Door.  I've never heard of it before, but it's a place to rate your company and the work experience anonymously.  Of the 58 reviews of WOTC, most of them were Holy Shit! bad.  It's worth registering for free as a member just to read all the reviews.  Check it out:

D&D 5e---Everyone's Second Most Favorite Edition of D&D?

I read that on someone's blog the other night, and it stuck with me.  How many people have adopted 5e as their primary game, vs, how many people are generally pleased enough with it to like it enough to call it their second most favored version of D&D?   Where does it rank in all the editions?


As for me, after reading the free rules set it interested me enough that I bought the PHB and MM, and likely will buy the DMG some day, in case I'm with a group that really really wants to play it.  But I will never run it myself.  If you eliminate second edition as just a pussified politically correct version of first edition, then I do have to say that after reading 5e I like it better then 3.x, PF, or 4e.  So I guess it is my second most favorite edition of the game,  But it's nothing I'd run out and play any time soon.
