Several employees claimed management told them to"avoid talking" about how many years of experience in QA they had when speaking with CD Projekt Red. CD Projekt Red was not getting the"level of experience" it paid for, and sources said it led to the company raising concerns over the QA's"underwhelming performance" multiple times to Quantic Lab.

PC Gamer's sources also revealed the turnover rate at Quantic Lab is high, with lead testers having to lie to clients about the size of QA teams. One former employee described harassment from managers, and many said management would"directly state testing games was unskilled work". Others shared their low salary figures and said it was financially unfeasible to live near the company's office in Cluj-Napoca.
