        Edmonton is somewhat cold an inhospitable.

        Pluspunten

        The pay and benefits were good.

        Minpunten

        Most disorganized art department I've ever worked for. Incredibly stressful and cut-throat work environment.

        Advies aan management

        Listen to your team members when they bring up concerns and issues. Not only will it improve morale but it'll save money, improve the project and reduce turnover.

        Doesn't get the recognition the studio deserves compared to the main (Edmonton) studio.

        Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij BioWare voor meer dan 10 jaar

        Pluspunten

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

        Minpunten

        - 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...

        - 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...

        The people, for the most part are collaborative, smart, creative. The studio is awesome. The benefits are great.

        Minpunten

        Transparency seems to be an issue. Meeting or private space (open floor plan) can sometimes be an issue.

        - Work with passionate people who care about the product - Compensated time off at end of projects - Dinners provided for overtime - Exciting and fast paced.

        Minpunten

        - Regular overtime is necessary to meet project commitments - Projects usually overrun their deadlines - Poor decision making processes and a tendency to revisit every decision

        Advies aan management

        - Listen to the project managers to keep projects on schedule - Stop revisiting project decisions

        Minpunten

        -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...

        Pluspunten

        * Passionate, smart developers who truly care about the products they're making. This sounds trite, but it's true. * EA really isn't as bad as many people think. * The studio is attempting to be really innovative with its current and next planned projects. This is a always a double-edged sword. Let's hope it works out for our fans' sake. * Salaries and benefits are decent. Some specializations could certainly make...

        Minpunten

        * Front-line management is often unfairly expected to do the jobs of two people. They must simultaneously act as advanced individual contributors and as people managers. This leads to frequent burnout by the company's brightest. * Double standards. Upper management does not practice what they preach. Cronyism. This is clearly evident during promotion and bonus time. * Several teams have recently been centralized, and...

        It will not be simple, but the cons mentioned above really do need to be addressed by the people with the authority to do so. Team health and studio morale is dangerously low these days.
