Pros

Great People
Good learning experience
Can learn many aspects of business from here

Cons

At the time it was a very large studio with 500+ people. So there is a lot of bureaucracy to communicate with anyone not part of your team. The approval processes and number of meetings can occasionally be disruptive to work flow.

    I worked at BioWare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great IPs to work with, lots of emphasis on personal input, management is open to listening to your ideas and is generally concerned with your work satisfaction. There was a really great emphasis on work/life balance as well.

    Cons

    I don't have too many cons to report. I had a great experience during my tenure at the studio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really admire the company's core values. Keep adhering to them and you'll have a satisfied and enthusiastic team.

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

    Pros

    Met some great, talented people. Many days were lots of fun.

    Cons

    QA is run in a way that discourages being a team player. Too much emphasis on contract and overseas QA. Much of QA, except those few who are 'embedded' with the developers, seem to be kept at arms length.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the industry-wide use of contract workers. QA personnel are an important part of the development process, not a group to be thrown away.
