    Does anyone know what it is like to work for these guys? Working conditions, hours etc?

    You'll work a 40 hour week, that's 8 hours a day, and if you take an hour for lunch you can expect to work from 9am - 6pm. You must start before 10am in the morning, though this is a bit flexible. We have game of the week on Friday's, where you can knock off at 5pm and have beer and chips (on the company), while having a go at the latest game to come out. And roughly every 8 weeks we'll do a company activity, the whole company took the afternoon of last Friday to see the Simpson's movie. I've been here for 10 months and haven't had to do any overtime (which is surprising for a programmer). The pay is decent compared to the rest of the industry and the location is pretty good, plenty of places to eat at lunch time and fairly close to trams and spencer and flinders st station. There are loads of experienced guys here (5+ years), and the people are really friendly. We work mainly on DS, PSP and Wii, but I wouldn't rule out our prospects for 360 or PS3.

    Thanks for that
    It sounds like a pretty good company then, I had read on this board about Melbourne House and the nightmare some people have working there so I was wondering if this was the same.
