    Pros

    Easy work. Laid back. People are very chill. No skills involved as long as you know the language you are testing. Nice opportunities to play video games before they are released.

    Cons

    Low salaries. Very little chance for promotion. Low salaries even with higher position. Extremely nerdy people in functionality department, but not a big deal. Asking for paid off days can be a pain in the butt.
    Unstable. job is usually contract-based. Takes about 2 years of working there to become a permanent position.

    Advice to Management

    Adding flexibility to employees taking their paid days off will be great.
