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

I worked at Capcom Vancouver

Pros

Nice 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 Management

Pay people what they are worth.
