Pros

Do you want a job that is challenging, fun, rewarding and intimate? Then dice is for you. Also, contrary to common beliefe, dice is no longer a "garage company" where people work 24/7. Most people have grown up and are in their 30s and have families. This is wholeheartedly supported by the company. I am able to have a flexible schedule and work from home if I have to to resolve family issues. On the other hand, the job is so fun that I myself tend to work a bit overtime because I want to, never because I am told to. I still get compensation.

Cons

The type of enthusiasm that is fostered within a successful game development studio comes with side-effect that people work a lot. I personally work a little bit more than I should mostly because I love my work so much but there have been conflicts at home at times due to this. In general though, if you do not commit to doing something no-one will blame you if it does not get done in time. The challenge here lies in not committing to too much and being very clear about what you do commit to.

    Nice office in a nice part of the city
    Very experienced team

    Cons

    One trick Pony, you will work exclusively on milking the Battlefield franchise
    Not a creative environment, strong focus on technology rather than design
    Company is not open with their employees, they are informed in a need to know basis
    Talent exchanges between different teams can be very bureaucratic
    Recruitment process misplaces new talent on unwanted roles
    Management heavy, cumbersome internal structure nobody understands
    Long hours are expected without compensation
    Heavy cycling of contractors and outsourcing to China

  2. Very good place to work at, full of awesome people.
