    I worked at Big Fish Games as a contractor (Less than a year)


    The location is fantastic. I could see the Puget Sound from my desk. I got to learn how to work on iOS devices much more than I had before. It's generally a friendlier environment for women than some of the gaming studios at Microsoft were.


    Initially, I was happy, because I had heard that this was a better environment for women in the industry than the area of Microsoft I'd been in. As it turns out, it's just as bad, in somewhat different ways. It had been strongly suggested to me that the team I was on rarely did not hire their contractors, that someone had to actively work to not get hired as an FTE, so when my contract was set to "completed" three weeks shortly before I thought they were going to offer me a fulltime job, it was a nasty shock. For almost a week I knew nothing about why I was removed, and when I did get an answer, it was only that "their staffing needs changed" and "they had a big deadline". I worked hard, including working overtime, and commuted a long traffic-filled way everyday for this company. I did my best to navigate hit-or-miss documentation and a surly, unapproachable trainer, and the thanks I get is to be jobless after I thought I'd be there for years? No thank you. My contract was set to complete shortly after I was told that "they weren't getting quality candidates applying" and "we are short on Senior Game Testers". If there was something else they needed me to be doing, or something they needed me to be doing differently, they sure didn't tell me. I was learning, and I didn't get a chance to prove myself.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your producers to waive less stuff. They let problematic things slip through. Hire more people and actually keep them on. Invest time and money in people and train them to be the employees you want, rather than rolling 4 D6 every time you are a bit dissatisfied with whoever is filling a given role. Reduce the politics. Get people who are good at their job in those roles, rather than the most likeable people. Make it so your leads have time to actually communicate with their people, and make sure your leads are actually willing to give constructively critical feedback. Nice is different than good, and nice is worth nothing if your employees don't know what you want them to be doing because your managers aren't telling them.
