Company deludes employees into thinking it's an "amazing" company with bells and whistles.

QA Analyst (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

I worked at BioWare as a contractor for more than a year

ProsWorking with the QA department was a great experience.
My direct boss was very easy going and explained things very well.
Loved my team and my tasks.
Was my first gaming company I worked for, so I was able to get my foot in the door that opened up lots of possibilities.

ConsI was led on that I would be brought on to the company full-time as opposed to being a contractor. I did an amazing job and worked my way up the QA ladder, but still got the boot once my contract was up.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of spending ridiculous amounts of money on breakfast every morning, use that money towards bringing dedicated and hard-working contractors on full-time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
