    Chance to work on many different titles, paid holidays, fair amount of secondment opportunities, summer/winter parties, free snacks + fruit.

    You start off as a contractor, meaning you could lose your job at any moment, most the people I started with were fired. You also don't get as many benefits as permanent staff, no sick pay.

    I worked at PlayStation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Dynamic and exiting working culture which doesn't overwhelm or stress employees with tight and unreliable deadlines but it encourages creativity and innovation. Also it has recently started to substantially improve how PlayStation look after its employees with initiatives such as flexible working, new facilities including a gym, or session well-being related. People there are amazing and its a classic to pop down to the canteen on Thursdays or Fridays after work to have a drink and have a laugh with your colleagues.

    Cons

    Rather than a con it's more a challenge the company has come across due to its impressive and fast growth over the past years, specially since PS4 launch, which has made that the company structure and some behavioural process are still catching up with that fast growth.
