Featured Review

Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

I have been working at Ubisoft for more than 3 years

Pros

Working with clients is fun

Cons

Can be stressful and messy

Advice to Management

N/A

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at BioWare for less than a year

Pros

BioWare has a great work culture, especially considering it's in the infamously hard-working games industry. The developers there are great to work with, and being under the Electronic Arts umbrella... gives you access to teams across the world. The teams across the BioWare studios all collaborate very well. Some interns were given full, genuine projects to helm themselves from start to finish, as opposed to "intern work" that people usually expect.

Cons

Working under Electronic Arts can be demoralizing if you like to read public opinion. If you're looking to put in a lot of passion and above-and-beyond effort into your work, not many of your... coworkers will join you in that.
