I worked at Mythic Entertainment as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Today was my last day at BioWare Mythic (aka Mythic Entertainment). I left because I am relocating out of state. I truly enjoyed my job. I looked forward to going to work. My co-workers were friendly and always helpful if I needed something. The work atmosphere is relaxed - one that promotes creativity which is really needed in this industry. I think the employees feel like a team and truly work together. I will miss working there and miss the people.

Cons

Hmmmm.... to be quite honest, I can't think of one.

    Once a great studio that held family-like values that has since been absorbed by the corporate machine"

    I worked at Mythic Entertainment full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - It has a history of being a small studio that accomplished big things that others had once scoffed at. Dark Age of Camelot was the best thing they ever did and is still an icon in the MMOG industry.
    - Located in beautiful Fairfax, Virginia

    Cons

    - Upper management has never taken responsibility for their decisions.
    - Studio has been in decline over the past few years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take responsibility for failings, not just the credit for success.

    I worked at Mythic Entertainment

    Pros

    Lots of company swag.
    Studios events and outings
    Worked with some good people

    Cons

    Hire people who not only love games but have other skills that can help the company grow and innovate.
    Tell people the truth from the beginning, no one likes a surprise that puts their job and personal life at risk.
    Management and Upper management were not on the same page and the employees suffered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people. Show interest in them and they will do the same for you. Compensate your talent so they remain your talent.
