    Ich habe bei BioWare gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Was previously a great company but the culture changed.

    Kontras

    This culture change wasn't for the better either. It reshaped the company and a lot of infighting happened because of this.

    Rat an das Management

    Work on getting the company together.

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

      Pros

      - 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...

      Kontras

      - 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.

      Rat an das Management

      -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...

      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?

      Keine Meinung zum Geschäftsführer

      Ich arbeite bei BioWare (Vollzeit)

      Pros

      - Opportunities to work on famous and popular AAA franchises - EA's pay and benefits are tops in the industry - Good facilities with lots of perks - Inclusive workplace that values and promotes diversity - There's a sincere effort to ensure work-life balance, but that's the first thing to disappear when a project catches fire

      Kontras

      - Studio leadership is untrustworthy, unaccountable and obsessed with politics - Bad creative and business decisions are allowed to survive for years and destroy the projects that get stuck with them - Sub-studios are the public scapegoats for the Edmonton mothership's failures - Constant high turnover at all levels, with many replacement hires being temp workers who don't receive any benefits - After years of high-profile...

      Rat an das Management

      - Reconnect with what made past BioWare games great and let it be the focus of future projects - Clean house in the upper management's ranks to bring in fresh blood that won't be distracted trying to settle old grudges - Give employees a good reason to stay besides the paycheck

      - In general, ideas are valued by their strengths, and can be argued for - A high concentration of good personalities - Great benefits - Edmonton is relatively affordable

      Kontras

      - Edmonton is cold in the winter - Office could use some upgrading

      Ich arbeite seit mehr als 20 Jahren bei BioWare (Vollzeit)

      Pros

      BioWare rewards hard work and dedication with opportunity and growth. BioWare goes out of their way to make employees work-life comfortable and collaborative. Chance to work alongside worldclass teams, such as VFX, Character Art, Level Art and Cinematics.

      Kontras

      Often BioWare is the target of wrongful assumptions and scrutiny.

      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.

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

      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...
