    Enjoyed my time at Babel, but senior management does not discipline the leads enough.

    Current Employee - Test Lead

    I have been working at Babel Media full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get in, no experience necessary.
    Good place to begin if you are interested in QA/games.
    Light work atmosphere
    Meet lots of new people
    Projects change frequently, keeping things -somewhat- fresh (as much as QA can be)

    Cons

    All workers starts as Freelance, meaning non reliable work. If you work hard, and be friendly, you should get constant work.
    Not a lot of advancement opportunities, unless you get lucky. Takes about 3 years to become a Lead on average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let testers do evaluations on their Leads. You have a LOT of leads who are incompetent.
