Interesting products and technologies, but poor work/life balance and no recognition
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 16 March 2018
The products are very interesting to work on, a fun culture around gaming, but not very visible in the Markham office. Work/life balance is non-existent - many 11-12 hour days every week, some 12-13 hour days. Many consecutive weekends spent working from home or in office or on call. This lasts months at a time, with very little break in between. Lots of knowledgeable engineers and developers, but project management makes it hard to build products effectively. Overall, what could be a fun and rewarding workplace is made unpleasant because employees don't receive breaks or rewards for the hard work they do.
Interesting projects, fun culture, knowledgeable team members
No work/life balance, consecutive weekends spent working or on call months at a time, no recognition for hard work
