ask ko lang, pag junior game programmer ba kailangan may alam kna sa pag-gawa ng mobile game kc basic c++ *** alam ko ehh and im planning to apply for this position..any inputs po?..TIA
mabait po ba mga boss (manager, leads, etc,,,,) dito?
french_connectio, negative feedback din nga binigay sakin nung friend ko about gameloft pero ewan ko kung totoo eh,,,
may pagka-racist daw yung isang boss dun. pero yung mga employees ok na ok.
What does racist even mean here? Can anyone elaborate on this? I ask because most people in the Philippines have a slight misunderstanding when it comes to racism. Hell,there's a program here called Luna Blanca or something, an extremely white-skinned girl and and extremely-dark skinned girl. The former being treated okay and the latter being mistreated. Can't get more racist than that.
may one time daw na ginegeneralize nya lahat ng pinoy employees na ang habol lang daw ay pera, pag binigyan mo ng malaking pera sa kumpanya di na aalis kahit alipinin pa nila. sabi ko may point naman yung boss nyo, pero ang pahabol nya daw is you filipinos don't know so much like us. yun na yung sinabi ko sa friend ko na uhmm... ok....
sinabi ko na din sa kanya na amy ganitong forums na ang-eexist sa pex at naalala nya pa daw dati kung paano ipagtanggol ng former employees yung company nila. turns out na yung mga nagtatanggol eh yung mga loyal employees na nagsi-alisan na daw kasi sa unfair treatment and sobrang pamumulitika sa office. Magagaling daw magpatakbo, magsalita and mangako yung pinoy na naiwan na so-called lead daw pero hanggang dun nalang daw yun, puro salita wala daw gawa
In terms of racism/generalizing people from a different race/country , Filipinos are just as bad. Examples:
Indians = 5/6, mabaho
Chinese = mayaman
Filipinos stare/do not like people who have really dark skin. People here call black/dark-skinned people "negro" or "negra" when those words are racist and not politically correct.
On the other hand, the one guy saying "filipinos don't know so much like us", it's racist as well. But you can't really blame him, I'm assuming his french or american and he's from a 1st world/developed nation and we are a 3rd world country (some call developing world but I don't really see much development around here). I'm not saying that his racism is justified but it is to be expected. And if it's just one guy then yeah, that's his opinion. It would be real sad and unfortunate though if all the foreign employees in Gameloft PH think lowly of Filipinos as well.
As for how things are run/managed in Gameloft PH, I would think there are some real problems if there are more than a few negative feedback or complaints than positive ones.
I'd like to know more about the politics and the unfair treatment that some people have mentioned. Besides the extremely long OT hours and the really demanding deadlines, do you know more about it french_connectio? Specifically, the company politics involved.
As far as i wanted to tell more, unfortunately hanggang dun lang yung nasabi ng friend ko. i would like to know more as well. this isn't a case of a disgruntled employee kung sasabihin nila kasi sa lahat ng narinig ko din na feedbacks ng company, medyo nakakasira na ng image sa company.
As for pltics, hindi nya din nakwento sakin in detail.
if there is a brave soul/individual who would like to take the risk of sharing their experience, please do
I'm working in Gameloft PH, and I am a QA Tester there. I'm on the QA side so I don't know much about the dev side.
I didn't know na may pagka racist pala yung isa sa mga boss dun if it's true.
About the extended OT hours, it's true. I'm not discouraging for those who wants to apply here pero be ready for a LOT of Overtime. Sometimes extended, if needed. Just a heads up.
I hope may magbago na talaga in the future kasi pati yung mga taong okay naman sakin at yung mga taong gusto ko dun eh nag resign na. Medyo nakakalungkot lang.
I also work here in Gameloft PH... yeah, naririnig ko rin *** kwento about that boss hehehe... I don't know up to what extent yung pagka"racist" nya as our department is not under him, pero mejo hindi maganda *** naririnig ko... mabait naman sya sa dept namin, nakikipaglokohan at kwentuhan minsan, but i can't speak for the departments na hawak nya..
Currently employed at Gameloft and I'd like to end those speculations and rumors (if you want to believe me) about the other side of the office. Hint: I ain't workin' for the QA dept.
First of all, I'll give the pros as stated from previous posts as well as my own opinions.
1. Entry level salary is quite competitive.
2. Some of the people you'll know here will end up being your closest friends.
3. Talent is undeniable. You'll learn a lot from your peers.
4. Easy to go to, I guess.
5. The building where Gameloft is (Burgundy Corporate Tower) may be known for its super sucky elevators (but super friendly elevator operators) but it is stationed right beside several budget friendly eats.
6. No dress code.
7. Super nice, friendly, helpful and informative Filipino HR people.
I won't list the cons as I did the PROS. Instead, I'll recount some of the bad things I encontered here. Some of which may enlighten your doubting mind
A gaming company is a gaming company. No matter what direction you look at it. Relaxed, FUN, colorful. But, of course, a company is also a company. And in our country, several labor codes must be observed.
I experienced several OTs here. Some are okay, but most of them aren't. I stayed here as long as 2am in the morning and as I've observed, most of the overtimers here stay as long as the next working day.
I don't know about their OT pay, but we don't have one. I think we have a set OT pay that's already in our salary but it's too small considering the amount of work given. Although we're given a meal allowance, sometimes we don't get to re-imburse them because of several reasons.
As for management and that racist guy, aahhh. That's where it gets real interesting. Being racist might be okay if you keep it to yourself. But this guy flaunts it. AND I MEAN HE FLAUNTS IT.
french_connection's source is right. He does look down on Filipinos. He thinks HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT and Filipinos are wrong and not to be trusted. Elaborating that would take ages because there are innumerable experiences wherein he 'showcased' his 'talents' so I'll give 3 just to tickle you guys.
1. Racism. He admits it and he flaunts it. He loves to talk to people 1 on 1 and grinds his point to your face to the point where he insults you. Take note, he's talking to a Filipino and he tells you how much he hates your race. He might like you for your talents but he won't trust you because you're from the Philippines. Even if you're not that patriotic, you'll feel that pang inside when he starts blabbering about his sentiments about our race.
2. Personal opinions are most likely offensive and emotionally jarring. If you're weak at heart and easily offended, steer away from this guy. He stops at nothing. Even your religion is a target. FYI: He's an atheist. I'm not against anyone's belief, just don't make fun of my religion. I'm Catholic and he made fun of it several times. My faith is strong, I wasn't jarred. But it was enough to offend me. I just didn't show it but rather told him how we are different and he shouldn't be talking crap bout my belief.
3. Work ethics. Just as I said, he said it himself. HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT. I'll admit, I learned several technical stuff from him but not even a bit of professionalism or even the most basic of all: respect. He might laud himself for his skills, but hey, everyone has his own skill. It all boils down on how you treat other people.
We might converse about a topic or two not because I want to. It's because I respect him as a part of the office and the company that pays me to do my job but not as person. Don't get me wrong, I'm not bitter. It's just this person's work ethics are sooooo over-the-top. Over-the-top as in demoralizing, unrelaxed, disrespectful and too invasive to say the least.
These are just SOME of the reasons why french_connection's posts are right. Kudos to your contact for telling you the right info.
AS for the career path here, personally, I'm still looking for that. Even just a hint. I can't say for the other guys here.
I'm sharing these just to let you guys know that some of Gameloft's former employees aren't just being bitter. Some or most of them are sharing their experiences just to give you guys a warning. Especially those who are under our departments foul regime and for those who will be working under it.
A bit of info about the 'lay-off' thing. If you don't perform, you get sacked. That's true for every company. But the mass resignations here can mean several things other than under-performing. Too much disrespect and demoralization from a person can lead to serious personal issues. So sometimes it's better to leave and look for greener pastures rather than be part of the problem.
Greener pastures may not always mean better pay. Sometimes, it can also mean looking for better treatment and respect from/for the management.
