        J'ai travaillé chez BioWare à temps plein plus de 10 ans

        Avantages

        - Fun perks, game deals - 'Community' events for coworkers - Being able to work on top quality titles

        Inconvénients

        - It's now become just another EA studio clone. The dollar is the ultimate bottom line now, as opposed to the quality (of both the product and the workplace) which used to be the priority. - Long hours of expected crunch with poor food options during finaling stages is still a problem here - Excess bloat of middle-management 'producer' positions which are full of people with little to no experience in the departments...

        Conseils à la direction

        - Remove a large portion of the middle management 'producer' roles that are currently filled with unqualified people, hire some project management people that have experience in the areas they are managing. Probably the biggest thing right now. - Create a work environment that is supportive of not only extroverted people, but introverted people that need quiet space to concentrate/focus. - Create something like a 'training...

        Inconvénients

        -Not always necessary buy-in or support from middle management. Certain initiatives or projects aren't setup for success due to lack of people power and resources, however requirements and priorities are not adjusted to reflex this. -Commitments and goals pushed down by middle management do not always align with the needs of the project. Occasionally they are driven by internal agendas or box checking. -Gambling future...

        Stable, mature studio Focus on work-life balance Senior, experienced teams World class games

        Inconvénients

        A lot of dead weight in middle-management. Producers punch down trying to be the next executive running the game. Online backlash/drama is constant.

        Conseils à la direction

        Management needs to do a better job of making face with actual content creators and programmers. Everything is filtered through ineffective middle managers.

          Avantages

          - People are in general kind, friendly, and helpful. Many of these people are the best in the world in their individual roles and they care enormously about the games and their team. - Upcoming projects are exciting and look great. - Company is family-oriented and leads constantly stress that you should keep healthy work-life boundaries (a nice change from past years). - Studio is moving soon to a new, very nice office...

          Inconvénients

          - Siloing has always been a huge issue at BioWare. - Some leads are really insecure which can manifest itself as either avoidance behaviour or abusive behaviour. - A small but passionate section of BioWare fans have historically and will probably always be mean to our company and our games. - EA is a double-edged sword.

          Conseils à la direction

          -Please give people an opportunity to grow beyond "just" senior without forcing them to be people managers. Top talent should be rewarded but there's nothing worse than a manger who is there for the wrong reasons. - We could be doing more to attract great people. I don't blame the city. I blame our processes. We should modernize our recruitment processes and then become pickier on who we hire. - Encourage employees...

          - Great people, great live work balance. Literally a big family. - Lots of exciting challenges - Lots of love from gaming communities and cosplayers - Free breakfast, lots of swags and nice perks

          Inconvénients

          - Products and solutions can be repetitive. - Hierarchy is strong, very hard to challenge senior technical people. - Very difficult to find the 'meat' of the game . - Put itself in tight deadlines as it promises impossible things over and over. - Edmonton is tough if you like a urban/hipster life.

          Conseils à la direction

          Focus on less content but high quality content. Look forward and not sideways, try thinking ahead. What is it that players want to play 3 years from now?
