Really multicultural office with a great working environment and the perfect place to learn loads about QA and the games industry, since you will work on lots of different titles on all major platforms for many major games developers and publishers. As with any outsourced company, there are not as many full time positions as there are people who want them. You have to go in to the job totally motivated to make the most of it - it is not a job for anyone looking for an easy ride!
Again as per most outsourced companies, the salary is not amazing, but the work atmosphere goes a long way to compensate for that.

The people at the company are great, there's a great sense of collaboration and familiarity.
Three very important things that need mentioning: - People are kept on 0-hour contracts for years to end. Recently, after promising many Full-Time contracts, they decided to keep people in the UK on 0-hour contracts and proceeded to open new branches in Romania and Portugal, with which the UK people will share the shifts and offering most of the Full-Time contracts there instead, as it would be cheaper. - Year after year, they keep on promising increased salaries based on performance, but only provide them a few weeks before the yearly update on minimum wage by the government, effectively keeping people on minimum wage or very close to it. - While this is a common issue in the industry, PTW has a system of NDAs in place that prevent people who have worked on a game to say the did so even years after the release date, even if the person's name is in the credits, and often won't ensure that the correct names are in the credits. While some change has been done on this matter (for a couple of games, if your name managed to get in the credits, you can now mention it after release - but for instance MY name didn't make it there so I can't) this still is a great issue as we don't have any way of proving our experience; in my case, I have worked on close to 30 games at the time of writing, and I can't mention a single one of them.2
