      Pros

      Good compensation for most teams, with employee office perks, and average benefits package. Free snacks in the break room.

      Cons

      Eventually canned our entire studio and moved overseas for cheaper labor rates.

      Fantastic Colleagues, Fun Tasks, Amazing Environment

      Pros

      Every person on staff is brilliant, easy to talk to, and encouraging! You'll really love coming into work and will leave the day knowing you accomplished something good. In my history of employment, I have never worked in a place where I loved working with every person till Playtika Santa Monica. The middle management folks are sincerely supportive of their staff and do their best to help you reach your career goals. The company fosters a true work life balance and assists everyone in living a healthy lifestyle. With that said, not all the snacks are super healthy but there certainly are great options for the health conscious. You will not regret working here and will only ask yourself, why didn't I get my foot in the door here earlier?

      Cons

      Not really many or anything serious. The open floor isn't for everyone and it can at times be difficult to really focus. The sprints are somewhat aggressive, so it can be intimidating for those that can't handle a little pressure. Playtika has an abundance of happy people, along with a good number of intensely nice and ecstatic people, thus, it might not be a good fit for the melancholy. Middle management is also very good, which can be a negative because you don't want them to leave, but that means there really isn't a way to go up the ladder.

      Sharp People & Great Culture

      Pros

      The people at Playtika are, in my consideration, one of the company's biggest assets. Almost everybody hired in the Santa Monica office is extremely capable. Everybody is task-oriented and brings no egos to the table. The culture in the office is really great too - happy hours, twice-a-week catering, and a general stream of work-appropriate silliness abounds. The products themselves are pretty successful too, which helps in terms of job security and company stability. There are usually interesting things to work on, with very few menial tasks. Management seems to have their heads on straight in making good long-term decisions for the company.

      Cons

      Overtime creeps in more often than I think many here would like. While there isn't a culture of overtime, it's used too frequently when plans are made for the future. Communication breaks down from time to time as well, causing occasional confusion and conflicting requirements. Finally, some of the company's efforts to be flexible in planning gets frustrating as there are too many last-minute changes for my taste.

      Pros

      Relatively small dev teams, so everyone plays an important role. The heads of the engineering teams are world class. Playtika's greatest strength is its office culture. The people here are great and a large reason I've remained at the company. Nice perks- free lunch 2x a week and free massages. Santa Monica is an unbeatable location.

      Cons

      Communication between dev & product teams needs improvement. Data driven to a fault: glaring customer service/experience issues can get put on the back log if they don't noticeably effect the bottom line. It seems unlikely the studio will ever get to make a new game.

      Pros

      Studios in different countries, good benefits, nice perks, nice offices, profitable company, fun gaming environment, good leadership (depending where you are).

      Cons

      Corporate headquarters doesn't get the balance that needs to be achieved when it comes to having studios world wide. Very closed minded and rigid leadership at corporate. Studios outside of corporate tend to not be kept in the loop or included in decisions. Culture is driven by corporate, but they don't understand different cultures.

      Comfortable but complacent

      Pros

      The people are pretty interesting and mostly fun to be around. The company has plenty of resources to make things happen if they really need to. Because of that, there's basically no "crunch time" situations where you have to work insane hours.

      Cons

      There's nothing exciting or engaging about the job itself, so you better find the actual work enthralling or this job will become a 9-5 caricature very quickly. Technical decisions are made with very little forethought, often because of business objectives. Never enough time to complete business objectives, and the office politics are a bit much.
