    Pros

    Friday afternoon off. That's all. Benefits are just average.

    Cons

    - Management is technically ignorant which is problematic for a tech company. - Role assignment and decision making relies more on personal kinship than assessment of competences, costs and benefits. - Dev work is not rewarding: mostly maintenance and efforts towards technological upgrades are largely hampered. If you are looking for a no-brainer job to just get your pay check at the end of the month, it might... be for you. Otherwise, stay away.

    I have been working at Playster full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Excellent things being done in this development company. The location is in the heart of Montreal. The managers do a good job. There is a healthy balance of project work and putting out fires. The Playster team is smart, knowledgable and helpful. There are a lot of perks that get discovered. The Devops team is remarkable and many things are being done with the most cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    This is the best place I've worked in Montreal and I truly have nothing bad to say.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
