    So right now I'm a QA intern now at a small software company (they've been around for a ~5+ years but it has a startup feel to it). I hear QA isn't the greatest of places to be in software, but I hear many end up starting in QA before moving into other areas. I'm trying to learn as much as I can and hopefully I've shown so far that I can make a contribution to the company, and if they offer me a position when I graduate, I think I'd accept.

    I'm looking for software people's perspective on QA and Dev, pros & cons, advice on positioning myself for moving up, and working in small shops vs large companies like Microsoft or Google.

    If I lived in Cali, I'd move apply at Blizzard in Irvine or EA whereever they are and all the gaming companies out there. I have read where QA is a good intro into the gaming industry but I don't know anyone personally that's done this.
