    I worked at Testronic Labs as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you love games, it's great place to be. You will be playing over and over the same title until the title is ready for release:) You will be playing titles long time before anyone else! There some pretty cool guys working in TL. Atmosphere is usually quite laid back, no one is stressing out or gives you crap (unless you do something really wrong - and I haven't seen that happening).

    Cons

    You can't be sure about tomorrow - shifts get cancelled and re booked, projects postponed etc. If you work on projects it's very difficult to estimate when are you going to be getting more work. Different situation is for those who has got a proper contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more projects in and keep your staff informed.

    Good company if it was for a bit of incompetence at higher levels

    I have been working at Testronic Labs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people (most of them), good clients to work for and increase experience in the videogames industry.

    Cons

    Staff is undervalued, and promotions are based on personal preferences. No wonder why there are people at management level with not much experience creating massive issues and bottlenecks. Also considering that some people got to management level automatically and without interviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on unproductive people and ensure whomever stands at higher level undertakes an interview. You might start keeping unskilled people and lose very valuable staff if you continue at this pace.

    I worked at Testronic Labs as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    + lots of interesting people to work with, fun environment
    + double pay for extra hours, and free meals on the weekend

    Cons

    - almost all the stuff is on 0 hours contract, which essentially means that they can get rid of you whenever they like
    - low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to spot and keep good professionals. Many of them have to leave searching for more opportunities, because they are unable to progress within the company.
