Former Employee - QA Tester

I worked at Rockstar Games full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great team easy going fun. Supportive team with chances to advance and work together collaborate across the departments. Fun atmosphere

Cons

Long hours with no overtime paid. Must wait for yearly bonus. Working in an office open space can be tense at times

Advice to Management

Shorter hours
