    I have been working at BioWare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BioWare has always had leadership that cares about its people. From the founders, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, to the current GM Aaryn Flynn. The company is focused on creating some of the best games in the world and it shows in its track record of games, including the recent Dragon Age: Inquisition (GOTY).

    BioWare's culture is defined by the statement "Quality in the Product and Quality in the Workplace". It is difficult to balance the needs of a project with the needs of the employees, but BioWare has done a good job of it over the years.

    Cons

    BioWare is a company that values open communication/critique. This can lead to stress as everyone's work is held to a high standard. If you enjoy a high performance culture, this might be a positive :-)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at BioWare.

    Interview

    I was emailed an art test after talking with HR which is understandable. But it was something super ridiculous and time consuming. The Test was something that should take about a week plus, but they gave me 3 days initially to complete it. About two days later, I was contacted again by HR again but a different person giving me a redundant overview of the job. It was very odd because I'm not sure if they knew I had already talked to someone and was given an Art test. Just a very awkward interview process.
