Has a bright(er) future
Game Designer (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC6 October 2017
The key to this company is the big lack in the upper management, which in turn leads to a close knit workfoce and rallies against this upper management rather than picking on each others.

The problematic mainly comes from the fact that the company grew too fast, and those at the top have been there only because they were there at the beginning, leading to rampant micromanagement, blanket desisions, and politics.

Now. the company's been acquired, leading to the former heads being replaced. However, the culture is still there and will only change slowly.

The perks are what you'd expect from a big game company but the salary is rather low, and they tend to hire mostly juniors. This leads to seniors quitting and a high turnover rate. In turn leading to low quality tools, products and procedures.

It's a good place to start, but don't stay there. You won't learn that much.
Pros
The usual perks, fun people to work with.
Cons
Not much to learn.

Terrible management
Developer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 February 2017
Management is the worst part of the company. They lie. I am disappointed in the company over all. Everything they told me that would happen with the role is not happening.

Nice company to work for with ups and downs
GNS (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC12 January 2016
I work for GNS which is a team of professionals from all around the world.You can start anywhere between 7am and 10am and take long pause at lunch time. The building has been only renovated so it is very nice inside. 3 weeks vacation and 5 sick days !

On the other side if you stay with this company you may be stuck for a long time as it doesn't invest into knowledge too much. You may find yourself working with technologies that are not asked on the market. The management is ok, as everywhere else , doesn't care too much. Office culture is invisible. You find your guys and that is it. The people who fail doing that will come, work and leave for home, like some robots.
Pros
free fruits, water and heating
Cons
no work culture and no opportunities to grow/advance

Testeur son (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC16 September 2014
Je crois que le plus gros atout de gameloft est la liberté des horaires. Chaque employés à le choix d'arriver à n'importe quelle heure entre 7h et 10h le matin et je crois que sa aide les gens a être plus relax et d'apprécié encore plus leurs travail.
Pros
beaucoup de concours
Cons
L'attente pour les augmentation est énorme.
