Shopzilla provides a fun place to work but the ratio of QA to dev is unbalanced which makes the QA workload very high.

QA Engineer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

Pros*Learn the latest industry trends for QA
*Learn many new QA technologies and frameworks
*Fun place to work at times

Cons*Industry trends implemented are not proven technologies
*Each team does non-standard QA practices (makes the ramp up time for transitioning from team to team very high)
*High turnover of employees
*If you do not have a dev background and don't want to program do not work here
*Expect QA to be heavy on automation
*Expect QA to be heavy on development skills (isn't that dev's job?)
*Very high workload - (8 hour days are unheard of)
*Food is catered in - (industry trick to get you to take shorter lunches and increase productivity)

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease standardize the QA across teams so there is one unified way of performing QA. QA productivity would be higher if you separated QA Engineers from QA Automation Engineers. There is just not enough time for a good QA leader to learn years of dev knowledge if the workload and pressure is high.
