Good games, poor processes

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsRare opportunity to work on games that are actually fun and look good on your resume. Good creative potential, lots of smart and passionate people. Due diligence helps ship titles against all odds (see below). Very casual. Fun events, cheap beer.

ConsVery poor code quality, management doesn't realize or care. If you're a coder, you can't excel through the quality of your code. Bugs, OMMs, crashes. If you're a young coder, don't go here - you'll pick up bad practices. Very poor pipelines, broken builds all the time, artists and designers suffer. Toxic politics. Propaganda that forces everybody to be in denial about the issues and not speak their minds publicly. Multiple layers of PMs most of whom aren't professionals in either code or art and therefore use cheer leading, drawing graphs and guilt trips instead of reason to motivate and manage. In fact, outrageous ratio of PMs to people who actually do the job. Overtime, though not as bad as in some other places. Didn't fulfill promises of bonuses and vacations to compensate for the OT. Pay is below average. Location is not actually in Vancouver.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork smarter, not harder.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
