I worked at Square Enix UK as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

You work with people who enjoy video games and pop culture and the hours are swell

Cons

No possibility of moving up, no recognition for more effort in the contract positions.

Advice to Management

When you have someone that cares and works harder than the average temp, it might be a good idea to at least give them advice or suggestions to move up, even if its into other departments.

    I have been working at Square Enix UK as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For trying to break into the video game industry, you couldn't find a better place to do QA Testing than Square Enix. The environment was well lit and kept cool (sometimes a little too cool) and you're constantly surrounded by SE merch. Getting to talk with your coworkers is easy and encouraged, and everyone there is very helpful and super friendly. Food was brought in and shared at LEAST once a week.

    Cons

    The turnaround is pretty fast. People come and go and moving up is (I hear) very hard. I've also heard that some pretty major changes happened to the QA dept after I moved on. I hope the environment is still as great as it was when I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep being so cool.
