    I have been working at BioWare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Lots of really great people -Moving between departments is relatively easy -Projects are pretty cool.

    Cons

    -Tons of politics and drama -Zero support for innovation unless it's a lead's pet project -Rotten core of senior leadership that does nothing to improve the situation -There is almost no room for advancement unless you're a friend of one of the 'old guard'. -Crunch - all of the crunch. Every project I've worked on has resulted in 80 - 100 hour weeks for at least 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Bioware is long overdue for a 'changing of the guard' - people in senior positions refuse to fix the very serious personnel issues festering beneath the surface & it's driving talent away from the studio. Either bioware will clear house and move into the future or it will crumble - not sure which way it will go.
