I have been working at BioWare full-time

Pros

You can learn a lot about the game industry.

Cons

The game industry is based on people's extra income and as that shrinks, so does the studio.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to be a designer you need to play the games you design.

    I have been working at BioWare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Lots of room for learning new teach and solving problems
    * Smart people
    * Crunch periods are not that long

    Cons

    * Management communication leaves lots to be desired
    * Lots of "Tech Managers". Basically strong tech people with crappy management skills
    * Downsized recently, more work spread to few individuals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to communicate with employees better. Secrecy is a killer
