      - Given real work directly from the PM even as an intern - Strong team to learn from - Nurturing and caring environment - Great compensation

      Pros

      Able to work with some of the most talented engineers in the industry. If you are a learner, you get to learn and gain experiences from the elites, great for starters. Lots of employee benefits and perks!

      Cons

      Sometimes work can be overloaded, not much of a work-life balance environment. There is little career advancement opportunities.

      Pros

      Good working environment, people are friendly, everyone can sit down and play together

      Cons

      No work-life balance (depends on what project you are on also). And the progression is not promising.

      no work life balance, lack of people management skills, stress and frustrated working environment

      Pros

      self-learning discipline and has chances to touch different working areas

      Cons

      No work life balance and prefer the mechanism of longer stay in office, the better performance No KPI evaluation and all the personal performance commitments evaluation are based on manager's mood. Nothing to learn when you stay too long. Need to know how to avoid trival mistakes, because it will deny all the good performance you have before.

      Pros

      - Fast paced growth if you can perform and not burn out - Challenging environment and responsibilities - Autonomy over many decisions and processes - Autonomy to initiate change and improvements - Nice office, young colleagues, many in-house events and free food

      Cons

      There is very little work-life balance here. By little I mean close to none. Expect to be on standby most nights and forget about making plans to meet other people on weeknights. It is common to be back on public holidays and weekends too. Tis is the case for all depts, esp shared services (data, IT, finance, law, corp). It is the culture set by managemnt.

      Pros

      Superb people - v talented. Great office environment. If you're good, you go places.

      Cons

      I'd suggest perhaps management tries to encourage a better work life balance. Common in gaming industry for folks to work long hours (sometimes down to employees not managing time well), but leadership needs to set the tone.
