Quality Assurance Analyst Reviews

What is it like working as a Quality Assurance Analyst?

Quality Assurance Analyst in Duluth:
"Fun Atmosphere."
Pros: I like the people I work with and friendship developed. Also, my boss is not pressuring or strict. My job is very flexible in allowing me to Work from home when necessary.I like being able to wear business casual clothes in the workplace. Jeans, nice shirts and any shoe is permitted.
Cons: What I don't like about my job is the lack of support from other departments. Also knowing that my pay is significantly lower than my peers that I work with and I don't feel valued or respected in my department by Corporate and Department Managers.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Miami:
"Prepare Test Cases, Talk with Developers, Create new Tasks."
Pros: Check out the requirements and get the right answers for solving big problems.
Cons: Sometimes the answers or requirements are wrong.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Orlando:
"Dream come true."
Pros: I like being able to work with games that I know are going to impact millions of people.
Cons: The company I'm with is famous for under paying their QA department.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Medford:
"Great management and work culture."
Pros: I love solving mysteries, and that's what I do as a QA analyst. I get to try to figure out whether something is correct, and if not, why. My manager and co-workers are great.
Cons: Honestly there's not much to dislike.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Los Angeles:
"Working for Trailer Park is a mixed bag."
Pros: My direct boss is great -- they advocate for us whenever they can. Lots of learning opportunities -- I've built my skill set quite a bit here, and it's been a rewarding experience. Great coworkers who are supportive. Most of the people I've met/known here have been fairly nice and welcoming.
Cons: Pay is not competitive -- HR admits they only pay about 80% of market rate. Since merging with Deep Focus, it's been a pain keeping up how things need to be done. Lack of leadership from upper management -- it's hard to tell what they would like in the future. The area where they're located is terrible -- Homeless, tourists, and people hustling you to give them money for something or other is a common occurrence. Business development leaves to be a bit desired -- we're frequently losing business for one reason or another. Which makes it frustrating for other departments who are reliant on them for getting work.
