Great, unless contract

QA Tester (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsThe culture and attitude of KingsIsle is amazing. Everyone is really open to everything and there isn't anything that can't be brought up to management/upper management. They understand that people have lives outside of work and do everything to accommodate that.

ConsContract employees are contract for at least 1 year before even being considered for full-time. This consideration can take another 15 months. The pay is not livable.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove the arbitrary 1 year minimum. Hire based on performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
