Trying to be AAA, but not sure how.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I have been working at Capcom Vancouver full-time for more than a year

ProsSteady employment in the tough Vancouver market.

Lots of board games for lunch breaks.

Cheap Beer.

ConsStudio is heavily mired in ego and politics. There is a common rule of "don't rock the boat". Don't bring up your issues with management on changes in direction. Don't try to implement better team management and work practices. Just keep your head down, talk about your issues outside of the office and do your work.

Deadlines are consistently ignored, and blame is shifted downwards. Project managers have a hard time with task management. Engine is also very primitive. The tech really needs to be updated to support a AAA title.

If Vancouver had more competition, this studio would have a hard time keeping their staff. The management in charge of this studio does not have a great amount of experience doing AAA titles, and are making some very odd decisions. Dead Rising 2 missed multiple deadlines for Capcom, resulting in no bonuses for staff (even though it was dangled like a carrot many times).

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and invest in proper per-production and engine building. Do blind surveys on employee satisfaction.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

They seem to have just started on Agile,… Advice to Senior Management: It feels like some of the senior staff is more concerned about keeping the status quo and participating in political games to hide the real… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Good place to learn what not to do

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Burnaby, BC (Canada)

I worked at Capcom Vancouver


Pros: Nice people. Fun projects. People are passionate about what they do.… Cons: - Overall quality of work is very poor. At least from a developers standpoint. 10k lines of code for a player. Come on hasn't anyone… Advice to Senior Management: Pay people what they are worth. More
