    "Shiny on top"

    Pros

    Great food! Yum. Yum! Yum!

    Cons

    This place is a con. It sells you a shiny, hopeful future and what you get is a sexist garbage place. Women are kept at the bottom if they have children (because you MUST put in 9 hours a day or 12 hours if you don’t have Gan pick up) and other co workers will find a way to stab you in the back. It’s a matter of time before a lawsuit shows how vile this place is. Until then, they’ll give you a nice trip once a year and some free sandwiches to shut your mouth.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and look at your calendar. Times are changing.

    "Good company, need to work on a few things"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Playtika full-time

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and listen to what other studios are saying. Preserve local culture. Don't delay all decisions and get in the way of studios being efficient. Consider that there is more than one way to get something done.

    Pros

    Stable, and the culture was the best of any place I have ever worked. Great people and a really fun atmosphere and getting to work on a game that is very successful.

    Cons

    -not much development of new games or new ideas

    Advice to Management

    Great job.

    I have been working at Playtika full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    The planning of projects and initiatives should involve more departs earlier, just to make sure that the best way to approach it has enough time and expertise to be found. Staffing is also a bit low.
