    I worked at Gameloft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Young team , relaxed atmosphere, easy to learn

    Monotony, you learn everything there is to learn in a month, then there is nothing new and exciting. Salary could be better. Over-reaching team leaders

    I worked at Gameloft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with Office is located within great hangout spots Staff is very approachable They have bidet in CR! Challenging culture - helps you thrive and learn a lot from everyone Good employee engagement activities

    Cons

    Local management should consult everybody when making a decision; too one-sided Hire the right people at the position to not have problems later on Have more people participate in activities Low salary and offer very few career opportunities Office is too small Building where the office is located is too old and the elevators pose a risk to accidents

    Advice to Management

    Please act professionally and do your job as proper as you can. Also, please expand the company to have its own game dev team.

    Pros

    - Getting a job a Gameloft is the easiest way for a person with non-technical background to enter the IT field. The recruitment process is a quite easy, the only real requirements being English and basic computer skills. - Somewhat flexible schedule. - Not very stressful. - Several decent benefits: Free coffee, free ice cream, fruits, chocolate, energy drinks and so on. - Recreational areas: Playstation, Table... Tennis, Pool - Decent healthcare that gets better over time. - Overtime is paid twice as much as a normal working day. Helps you gain experience and adds a weight to your CV. - You get to know people of very different profiles, different backgrounds, different mindsets etc. And surely you will get to know some awesome people. - Local management is awesome. They care for people and strive to constantly improve themselves and the working procedures, even know it's easier said than done.

    Cons

    - Very low and non negotiable paycheck for the more skilled workers. Given the responsibilities you have when you start, the paycheck is decent, but fails to keep up with your skill level. - No interest from the company in helping the employee' skills. There is an overall poor employee retention strategy. Everybody is expendable and the top management will make sure you know it. - Broken promotion system. You... may get to be the best tester in the building, but you won't get promoted unless you convince the Senior Project Manager that you're the one for the job. Even if you manage to do that (given the SPM isn't biased), you'll be put on the waiting list if there are no spots available for that position. Until an official promotion, you may get more responsibilities, but your paycheck remains the same. - Broken reward system. A performance bonus is given to the highest employee score. If you want to get the necessary score, you need to be the best but also know the right people. It's all or nothing. - Personal relationships usually interfere with the working process, and that leads to unfair decisions being made. - Although most people are decent, some of the persons you get to meet can cause real head aches. - Major communication issues between different departments ex: QA and Dev. Although they should be working together, most of the time, it's more like a fight between them. The company runs on a business model which allows it to hire inexperienced people on QA side. This leads to a high turnover rate, which determines the management to treat the QA employees as a highly dispensable. - Although you get a lot of experience in the field, you realize at some point that you don't make a real difference. That's mainly because HQ doesn't value QA's expertise the way they should.

    Advice to Management

    - Learn to value QA's expertise more. They have the gaming experience, they usually know what's best for the project and they are closer to the market. - Put more value in your employees. If you treat them as an expendable force, they will start to put less interest in their work, before they eventually leave.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Gameloft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company ensured that fun, engaging, competition environment in the work place is maintained. They have company events for big holidays and small tokens of gifts make for special occasions. I deeply appreciate that Management / HR department value employee effort with good reward system, and listen to opinions open-minded.

    Cons

    Attendance and break time can be quite strict but I understand we need this policy special in place for QA Department.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in process improvement systems could be more priority so that certain steps in the testing process could be more improved and automated.

    Pros

    The colleagues are great, work environment is super cool and relaxed. Good work schedule with the possibility of over time.

    Stress over nothing, nobody in the management listens to what you have to say, salary raises are very small if at all.

    Advice to Management

    You should listen to what the small people say not only other fellow managers.
