Stay away
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Redwood City, CASeptember 20, 2018
You will not be valued or compensated appropriately for being a hard worker. Just stay away from here. The only upsides to have worked here was I meeting my husband.
Pros
None. Seriously.
Cons
Just about everything. Don't work here.

Fair Experience at a Video Game Publishing Company
Localization Specialist (Former Employee) –  Redwood City, CAAugust 29, 2017
First time working in the game industry. Perfect World Entertainment was a publishing company that localized and hosted foreign games to the US market. My job title was to act as a Korean localization specialist, but I ended up doing some QA work as well. Though I didn't mind doing the extra work, it's important to note that the company is notorious for employing low wages. Nevertheless, it's not a bad way to get your foot into the QA or publishing industry.
Pros
Supervisor was helpful and understanding
Cons
Wages are quite low compared to game industry standards

Very good, but a few drawbacks
Quality Assurance Lead (Former Employee) –  Redwood City, CAJuly 12, 2017
Great place to work; one of the few places I've worked at where QA testers are treated like actual people. Unfortunately, organizational problems resulted in several entire departments being cut, and me doing three people's jobs without being properly trained or appropriately compensated.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Frequent communication failures

Average Game company with average expectations
Senior Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Redwood City, CAJune 5, 2017
With this being a world-wide company, with developers scattered across the globe, getting issues resolved is incredibly difficult. Teams are close-knit but there is little to no communication between them. This creates a disjointed feeling around the office, and not a very welcome environment for newcomers
Pros
experience
Cons
poor inter-department communication

Great People That May Go Unappreciated
Tier II Lead Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Redwood Shores, CASeptember 16, 2013
There are some great people working here.

Everyone shows up with a similar attitude and that energy is shared throughout the day among the group. No one is afraid to ask questions as there is a very helpful attitude when it comes to training and assisting each other in the team environment.

The job has taught valuable skills in the importance of writing, management, and communication that can be applied to any job.

The hardest part of the job is simply attacking seemingly endless flow of work that keeps coming and never stops.

Management does it's best to alleviate the stresses of the job, but most everyone here is over-worked and becomes over-qualified for their position in a short time. The trial-by-fire has made many people qualified for something better, but advancement always seems to take much longer than necessary.
Pros
Good benefits, location is relatively convenient, small company with room for growth
Cons
Nepotism is common, sluggish Advancement
