Good place to learn what not to do

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

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.

    Pros: - Full time employment in an industry that is heading more towards contract employment… Cons: - Inability to focus on what makes the IP good and push the quality on those features and maintain them between sequels. - Base of… Advice to Senior Management: - Recognize who key contributors are and focus on keeping them happy rather than just keeping the peace. If someone is screwing up -- do… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
