    I worked at Playtika full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    "Shiny on top"

     in Israel, WV

    I worked at Playtika

    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.

    Thank you for the feedback. We are glad you liked the culture here. While sometimes business decisions are very tough to make, we have a solid leadership that has worked hard to maintain the same culture and environment in all our studios after last year's sale. Our goal is to continue staying true to our core values and identifying opportunities continue to make Playtika a great place to work.

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

    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.

    I have been working at Playtika full-time for 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.
