    Pros

    Great games
    Great, experienced talent in studio
    Making changes to improve transparency
    Everyone is trying to make the studio a better place
    Huge recent improvements in the engine and tools that are making a difference
    Great benefits
    Competitive salaries

    Cons

    Could be more nimble.
    Approval process is slow.
    Some people are good at pointing out problems, not as good with coming up with solutions. Creates negativity around some pretty simple things that can be solved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the studio and the way we work. You are starting to change things for the good but we are far from where we need to be. I really want to see this studio be the best in the city. There is no reason why we can't be!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Capcom Vancouver in January 2014.

    Interview

    An HR rep contacted me to schedule and initial phone screen within days of when I had originally submitted my application. During the phone screen, the HR rep spoke about the lengthy hiring process, and what I could expect during the phone screen and going forward. They seemed very professional and specific.

    Interview Questions

    • I never got past the first two initial questions. We never talked about my experience, or who I was or where I came from, which I found to be disrespectful. The first questions was:

      "How big was the biggest team you managed?"

      and the second question:

      "What projects are you credited on?"

      After the second question the HR rep told me they weren't interested in my services. The phone screen lasted <10min.
