      Pros

      + Work from home opportunities. At least during COVID. + You get to play video games. + Free games and discounts on games published by the employer. + Most co-workers are often laid back and fun to work with.

      Cons

      - Long work days. Can leave you mentally exhausted. - Mandatory OT. Could be a pro if you need the money or don't have anything else going on in your life. - Testing can get repetitive as you are often checking no more than a few specific areas of a game. - Contract job, and you have to wait a few months before reapplying. - Unless you intend on devoting yourself to standing out above everyone else and/or being hired internally to another position, don't expect much in the way of career opportunities.
