I worked at Konami as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly atmosphere that familiarizes you with the software development process while keeping a working environment that eases someone fresh out of college into the working world.

Cons

Chances of retaining extended employment as a QA Tester are not guaranteed. Check with your supervisor how long your contract will last so that you can have another job lined up if it does not look like they will extend your contract.

Advice to Management

Be upfront with QA contractors and let them know if their chances of acquiring an extended contract are low so that they can work lined up. Other than that it was a pleasure working with you all and I hope things are going well.

    I worked at Konami as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was my second experience in the gaming industry that basically cemented me wanting to continue on into the industry. I loved the people that I got to work with and am still connected with some of them today. Some of the people that I worked with were promoted through the company and got to become Producers and Product Managers.

    Cons

    The fun corporate culture that I've since experienced at other companies seemed almost non existent at Konami. Very little development work is done at this office so there's not much control over the products.
