I worked at Square Enix UK (More than 3 years)
It was such a great environment to work in. Everyone was pretty amiable and understanding. The onus of responsibility is up to each individual person; this means that if you're late, you won't be getting money for the time you didn't show up but you won't be berated for it. Great bosses as well.
This is more of a downside of QA rather than Square Enix, but the downtime between builds is really lame. The worst thing here is being given nothing to do because they do not give you access to the internet unless you're of a senior position.
Advice to Management
Have clearer ways to advance in the company.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Square Enix UK (El Segundo, CA) in February 2016.
It was broken into 3 steps; Hiring Manager, Proficiency test, and then a final interview with the QA managers. The proficiency test was low pressure and the interview was actually very fun.
