Poor pay, unstable flexi contract, no form of advancement and poor management
Whilst I did enjoy my time at Keywords, the longer I stayed the more I could see the split ends and cracks in the corners. The salary is disgracefully low, I was earning more behind a shop counter! Management is inefficient and poor at communicating with themselves and employees.
Pros
Nice people, interesting work if you like games
Cons
Poor pay, 0 benefits, unstable contract

Excellent experience
There is a collaborative and relaxed environment. I would work with them again if I had a chance. I got fairly paid on time. Also had a very nice interview experience.

A good environment
For someone that lives in the gaming industry, I can say that this company provides a great overall experience of this type of market. Keywords also have a great environment to work, gives the employees the space to be able to balance a healthy day and the natural stress of the job.

Not a serious company, not a fair company, not a smart company
Let me start of with the good:

- You get to play video games

- With some luck your name will end up in the credits of a game

- You get to sleep in every day as even though you are expected to start working at 9:30, practically nobody does, even leads and Pm's come in late on a daily basis

- perfect if this is your 1st job in life


Now the bad:


- Very demotivating

- Unfair company culture

- Higher positions put the blame on the people below instead of taking responsibility for their own mistakes

- Bad pay, working at a local supermarket will earn you 2 euros per hour more.

- Unfair treatment of employees

- People in high places with (very) bad decision making skills

- They have policies and guidelines, but nobody really cares

- Working hard will be rewarded with: more work

- you WILL be underappreciated by everyone above you unless you just shut up and do what you are told regardless


- Little career opportunities:


You can progress to become team lead and then PM however, why would you? Pay will still be low and all the aforementioned cons will still apply.


- The company and its employees in decision making functions share 1 common practice:


Short term investment, with short term profits


- Flexible contracts, people are disposable

- People with no skill ending up in high places

- Even the people who are in charge of organizing events have no clue what they are doing; for example: previously a BBQ would be organised on-site after work hours, that was great! Free drinks as much as you'd like and no need for travel. What happens next is that the

Worst place to work ever
Bad management, unstable contract, minimum salary. Just don’t work here, you deserve a better job. They will treat you like you’re worth nothing and don’t even expect any benefits
Pros
None
Cons
Everything you can expect will be worse than that

Fun, enjoyable job
Fun enjoyable job, but don't expect too many personal development opportunities. Nice atmosphere, easy going. Unfortunately, not a good fit for ambitious people.

very good enviroment
A good place to start in terms of experience and learning about the work environment and linguistic culture. You get to meet many nice people and very friendly environment
The salary and benefits are very poor. It is not enough for people to survive in Dublin.

Multilingual workplace
During my experience at Keywords Int. I have worked for the major video game developers and publishers such as Sony Computer Entertainment, Microsoft, and Namco, specializing in the identification of linguistic bugs (translation, grammar, spelling issues) and the review of language components (Text and Audio files). I have also gained experience of using databases together with an excellent attention to details. Moreover, I have developed strong communication skills by cooperating with the other members of the multilingual team to ensure an efficient job according to the priorities set by the team leader.

Productive and fun work place
We have daily plan for to-do-list, so we organise that what we will do for that day and we can manage time. It is an international company, so it is fun to work with many colleagues from the different countries.
I learnt to report some bugs and to edit some corrections in database. It is enjoyable to test games, but you have be really focus on for details and needed so much care.
Cons
Flexible contrat, payment lunch
