    I have been working at QuickPlay full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Quickplay is like a teenager in the tech startup world, but still functions a lot like a startup. Positives are: Cutting edge technology. A ton of engagement events for employees like monthly lunches with games and cash prizes that normally include beer. Company sponsored happy hours offsite are normal, and the annual summer events/ Holiday party are a lot of fun. Quickplay invests a lot in their people and the CEO gets that the employees are essential to their livelihood. Office culture is really relaxed-- you can wear jeans and a t-shirt everyday and bring your dog to work. Overall, there are a lot of perks that set this company apart from the average. The company pays 100% medical benefits for employees, which is rare these days.

    Cons

    For some of the positions at Quickplay the days can be long, and that is the startup feel. Clarity on project work is missing sometimes. Communication could be improved from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communicating from the top down, so the lower level employees still understand what Quickplay is working towards and how they are contributing. Set clear expectations for projects and hold people accountable.

    I worked at QuickPlay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When building out the San Diego office, The people and environment were the best. Some of the best and brightest group I had the pleasure of working with.

    Cons

    Reporting to corporate in Toronto, then opened a remote office in India. Some developers, technicians and analysts left and were never replaced. San Diego professional services contracted to the point where I was working 50-60 hours a week. After additional restructuring of the organization, my position was felt no longer needed and let go.

    Advice to Management

    They need to get hire a couple of high level executives in the San Diego office. We were right to worry about the visibility of our work. Especially with the center of excellence, we felt we never got the visibility we deserved.
