Kind of a mess, management is extremely stingy on advancements/promotions
As a contracted QA tester, this job was fun and relaxed overall, but beneath the surface it's a complete mess.
A typical day occurs at different locations depending on which project you are assigned to. Your QA lead will give each team lead a task, which they will break down for their respective groups.
For the most part, other co-workers were - more ... cool and laid-back, but many were very hard to work with. Getting people to help with an assignment is like pulling teeth, so the majority of tasks given are completed solo. People will ask you for help relentlessly, but refuse to return the favor ... - less
ProsPeople generally fun to work with, free breakroom snacks/drinks, manageable work/life balance
ConsHard work goes largely unnoticed, team leads sometimes make strange impulsive decisions, majority of employees lack common workplace ettiquette
