    I have been working at Eidos

    Pros

    One of the best QA tester pay you can get from a wide variety of companies. Very relax and fun environment. People are very friendly and you feel as though you would are home!
    Work performance is expected like in any other company, but the employee benefits and respect you get from piers and management is really great!

    The company just established itself in Montreal and will surely grow with the years to come. Montreal is shapping up to be a world leader in the video game business.

    Cons

    For certain people, being a QA tester on games is a dream job come true! For others well, its just work as usual. Testing the lastest games, giving feedback and finding bugs is really nice, but the work becomes repetitive and you don't always choose which project you will be on. Like in any company, the project you are on, might not be your favorite at the moment, but down the road, you will end up on something really nice.

    The pay could be higher, but like any testing job, Eidos offers more than the other companies out there. Overtime comes by in bulks, and is not expected by employees, but appreciated.

    Teamwork is nice, but like any other teamwork project in school or in business, some always have to pull more their own weight than others, which is frustrating for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on doing a fine job of doing what you are suppose to. The atmosphere is really nice and don't waht works, but try in tuning what works in something even better. Any aspect of work, fun or repetitive can be bettered in a wonderful work experience.

    I worked at Eidos full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    At the time, Eidos were one of the few British video game publishers left, but the staff (especially all of the ex-SCi people) were excellent.

    Cons

    Lots of people pulling in different directions made it a frustrating place to work sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you decide to do something, do it with heart and passion.

    I worked at Eidos

    Pros

    Computer games is a fun industry to be in, very relaxed environment, people as a whole were nice and friendly. Finished at 3;30pm on a friday which was brilliant but i then i had a long commute home meaning it was still around 5 - 6 by the time i got in.

    Cons

    Limited career progression unless someone left, wimbledon isnt the easiest to get to if not living in london, finished at 6pm mon - thurs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer some form of career progression to workers even if it is only minimal. By doing this it would give employees something to work towards and hold onto good members of staff
