      Ich habe für mehr als 6 Jahre bei BioWare gearbeitet ()

      Pros

      - 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

      Kontras

      - 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.

      Rat an das Management

      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?

      Ich arbeite seit mehr als 6 Jahren bei BioWare (Vollzeit)

      Pros

      - Great opportunity to work with some of the top talent in the industry on incredible IP. - Studio has hugely experienced individuals at all three sites, in leadership and dev. - Fantastic culture; family oriented and friendly.

      Kontras

      - Games are big and complex to make: can be a struggle for those new to the RPG genre. - Edmonton facility is outdated compared to Montreal and Austin. - BioWare's desire to retain their sense of self can be at odds with EA on occasion.

      Rat an das Management

      - Stay the course: continue to invest in talented individuals. - Be aware of career growth for all staff.

      Pros

      - Average age of employees here are much higher than other game studios I've previously worked at. Reinforcing my observation that they really make it a place you would like to stay and settle down in. - Despite the usual industry technology churn and process changes, management is always approachable and willing to listen to your input, feedback and is sincere about your concerns. - Family oriented; if you need to...

      Kontras

      - Location makes it hard to retain talent, especially when attracting younger talent. - BioWare culture is harder to export to sister studios, which can cause misalignment with decisions and direction. - EA though mostly hands off especially on the creative development of the game, still consistently tinkers with the studio structure, management and process, causing past senior leadership members to leave and it erodes...

      Rat an das Management

      - Continue to act as a bulwark against decisions that don't make sense either from internal or external factors when it jeopardizes BioWare's ability to make great games. - Look at more other creative ways to attract and retain talent. - Worth looking at how we interact with both EA studios and our sister studios, a lot of positive gains can be had with how we build our games as we move more towards a build of having...

      Pros

      Gives a lot of support and opportunity for their employee to leave their mark in the companies and in the games. they let you go as far as you are ready to push for and recognize your effort. They'll guide you towards your straight when you are not at your best. Bioware cares for their employees and listen to them. The hierarchy is fairly flat and very open for everyone to speak out.

      Kontras

      not at the best of the technology in production tools , they come from far but are trying their best to get back up to the top

        -Bioware cares about its employees. Benefits are nice, and Bioware has a good life and work balance( of course there is always crunch when the game is at its final stage.) -Most of the time , the higher ups listen to our feedback. -Aim for a very high quality game. -When the game needs more time, most of the time is given by EA to ensure Bioware ships great titles. -Friendly work environment. -Very open to trying...

        -Politics. But I have been in the industry long enough to know politics exists at every game studio. Bioware has the least amount of it.

        Pros

        Working for BioWare is great!! There are so many opportunities to work on some of the industries best franchises; there are even new IP opportunities, which is a rarity. I've had the pleasure to work with some of the most talented teams and individuals assembled - super passionate and humble. Certainly in an environment like this I am consistently challenged, encouraged to grow with plenty of opportunities to contribute....

        The projects I have been working on are very, very, big. This does require a lot of determination, commitment and highly skilled individuals. Trying to work with so many dependencies can be tough at times.

        Pros

        BioWare has always had leadership that cares about its people. From the founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, to the current GM Aaryn Flynn. The company is focused on creating some of the best games in the world and it shows in its track record of games, including the recent Dragon Age: Inquisition (GOTY). BioWare's culture is defined by the statement "Quality in the Product and Quality in the Workplace". It is difficult...

        BioWare is a company that values open communication/critique. This can lead to stress as everyone's work is held to a high standard. If you enjoy a high performance culture, this might be a positive :-)
