    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Video gaming as a job - Testing new games - Colleagues are great - The office is quite big - Try many platforms - You can take or skip projects - No one would be controlling you or your schedules (but you have an evaluation after each project) - Lunch facilities in the same building - Many fun events before and after working hours - Easy to access by Luas

    Cons

    - Far away from city center (around 45 mins by Luas) - Not a stable income (only by project availability) - They keep hiring a lot of people of the same language, so it's hard to get a project. - Barely over the minimum wage. - Wages are by tiers, tiers depend on hours worked, hours worked depend on projects available. - It can be very demotivating not to have projects in a long time (could be even months),... specially if you look for jobs and get Keywords ads looking for testers of your own language.
