Verloop maar dit is eerder gelinkt aan de sector.

One of the best companies i have worked with. Very supportive team, very responsive.
Maybe improvements on contractor benefits, but there is not much to complain as we know as a contractor we get all inclusive.

You get to test game software, write bugs, use databases, and perform most kinds of black, and grey box manual and automated testing. (Unreal physics debugging, HALO testing, Golden Path/Happy Path testing...) If you are adventurous you can even create your own testing software, for review and future use. If you like to be challenged, they might just sit you down and make you do the hardest tests every day until your fingers are calloused. If you like hitting your head against the wall until you know everything there is to know about a specific program or database this is the job for you.
Cliquey behavior develops in the company and layoffs are based on personal emotions instead of metrics. Metrics aren't a good measure of value in this job. Will be told to not test X, or don't write any bugs on Y, then when your reviews come they will ask you why you didn't bug Y. You will be forced to perform laborious tests that take 6+ hours and only one person will get to write a bug on these tests if they are successful in finding the defect, this means only 1 person gets to meet their bug metrics that day. If you do not meet or exceed these metrics, you will be put on a personal plan. Your employment is entirely subject to the free hand of the market, you will be forced to work on extremely bad games that will never actually hit their profit margins, and thus your employment is always on a razor's edge. Managers will say they will always have a new project to take in the testers that are fired every year, but in reality, you would be lucky to make it 2 years without being terminated. Tribal knowledge. Not enough people are willing to edit the documentation for various how-to-do X guides. Oh yeah, less than $15 an hour because at the end of the day, you might be a highly specialized and skilled tester, but you are still just 'playing games' for work
