Good place to learn what not to do

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

I worked at Capcom Vancouver

ProsNice people. Fun projects. People are passionate about what they do. Good benefits. Owners are very approachable and easy to talk to.

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 there heard of design patterns, object oriented development. Just abysmal design. Its a wonder they can final games.
- Design decisions all over the map. Once month the game is X then next month game is Y. Then you wonder why things take so long.
- Work life balance is not very good.
- Terrible pay. They look for junior staff and underpay them. They keep pay low even after you excel and can demonstrate senior capabilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay people what they are worth.

Overall programming aptitude is improving, but still a ways to go.

Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

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


Pros: - Interesting IP with many opportunities to work on interesting tech - All tech is developed in-house, letting you touch all… Cons: - Compensation is lacking. Less than what you'd make at EA or other nearby large studios. - Leadership likes to play it too safe. … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
