Colleagues are friendly and nice, it is actually a very nice environment to work in. The downside is the salary as it's very low. If you live in an expensive area, it's not recommended.

Employees aren't valued very highly and don't seem to be very trusted.

Great work is not rewarded whereas mistakes were a bigger deal.


The work culture is a bit too competitive and management had a slightly antagonistic relationship with some employees.

Working for SEGA is a relatively laid back job regarding you do the basics, you meet a variety of friendly faces on site and around neighboring shops that give a community type feel to the location.
this makes it a pleasure to arrive on site.
Pros
Game testing is to be carried out and can be fun

A lot is expected from employees for relatively little in return. Wages are generally low when compared to equivalent roles in other companies. No CPD. Nice people, poor workplace culture. Work never finishes and it is expected for employees to work well outside their contracted working hours. Poor travel benefits. Lots of finger-pointing and blame avoidance.

SEGA has a great working environment and a strong sense of unity in the staff (at least for the testers) this makes for a place you enjoy going to and even when the work becomes a bit tedious its still gaming related so you can always find fun in it.

Unfortunately they do not value their employees. Everyone is "replaceable". They would not hesitate to zero you down. No option for higher pay, neither for better position.

I wouldnt advise any experienced qa to take a position here, as you will be very disappointed in the experience.

Very Low Salary, especially in comparison to the rest of the industry

Feel like your back in school, steering at the clock waiting for break time.


strict NO phones on the office floor policy

Set break and lunch times (absolutely no office flexibility at all)

Half an hour for lunch, with no real food places local on on site cafe which is very expensive
Pros
A Good way into the QA testing industry for beginners (looks good on the resume)
Cons
Low wage, no flexibility, no phones

A lot of work to complete with different amounts of guidance, challenging job but always something to do and to keep busy. Management was ok, sometimes very little guidance given, other times perfect.

My experience was positive, though their failure to promote me despite my experience and exemplary performance was deeply frustrating. The working environment was pleasant and the people were polite and kind!

It can be a very good place to work for people looking for a temporary position only. Good working hours and nice environment, but not a lot of stability due to the zero hour contract. Suitable for short periods, but not for a long term idea.

You're bound to meet new interesting people at SEGA and experience the triple A games industry in it's rawest form. There is always something new to learn and many FQA disciplines to pick up on during your experience with this company.

My duty was to check the quality of Italian translations in game, proofreading text and assuring
there were no grammar or spelling mistakes, text cut off, overlapping or bleeding outside the text

boxes. Above all I had the responsibility to make sure that the specific terminology had been

respected for each platform in order to avoid failing the submission of the game (TRC). I often supported the role of Italian translator.

I started my career as a tester on this company, and for that I must be thankful. But the fact is that they will contract anyone, because their standards are very low.

There is a serious lack of professionalism at all levels, so why a Tester is going to be professional when the Senior Tester have the position just for being friend of the Lead, the Lead is watching football and listening music during working hours, the Supervisor hates his job, as he often says to everyone, and the Manager can't cope with stress as the job is too much for him?


Imagine an ordinary day at the office. You arrive and you realize you do not have a chair, so you have to steal one from another Tester. Then your computer doesn't work, call IT. Your PS3 is missing the controller, but people in the storage don't know why and moreover they don't care...


Then you start working one hour late, just to realise that the colleague sitting at your left is totally lost, she have no clue about this job and she should never have been hired, but hey, she is a girl and she is hot. Fair enough. And the colleague at right is cheating all the results because he is too lazy to actually test the game, and he is not even hiding.


A veteran Lead in the department told me this: QA doesn't stand for Quality Assurance, but for Quantity Assurance.


Besides all the sloppy shoddy disorganized work, it is a relaxed and fun place to work, where nobody cares too much about anything, where you can have fun, make friends and take it easy. And maybe learn one thing or two about this business, if you want.

Pros
Fun, relaxed environment. Not too hard. Play games.
Cons
Unprofessional. Low standards. Zero hours contracts.
