TECHNOLOGIST (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 8 May 2013
Good place, with great people. Workload based on product release cycles (busy sometimes and quiet other times). Flexible work hours though and the company does their best to improve through employee surveys.
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
