    I have been working at DICE (Sweden) full-time

    Pros

    At DICE Los Angeles, they treat their employees like talent. Our opinions are valued. Work/life balance is extremely important.

    Cons

    The only con would be that housing near the studio is a bit pricey, but it's super close to the beach and in an extremely nice area, so that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! The studio just keeps getting better and better and has become a destination game employer in Los Angeles!

    I worked at DICE (Sweden) full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You get to work with experienced and skilled developers, of which many wants to help you grow and learn. Pay is great for new programmers the game industry. Wonderful and fantastic parties.

    Cons

    The game studio is divided in siloes that don't share the same goals. This leads to dysfunctional communication, lack of progress, as well as a lack of a clear vision. Strong presence of office politics; persuade the right people, "play the game", and pretend like any issues are non-existent to maintain a facade amongst people. "Buddy politics" & nepotism. If you're friends with the right people and if your partner needs...

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to stay, make them happy. If they aren't happy in their team, let them move to another team. It's short term thinking that leads you down the path of "we can't move this person we need him here", well if that person quits you have none of him anywhere. Start admitting that you have problems.

      I have been working at DICE (Sweden) full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      The benefits and salary is good. The games are top notch. Super talanted people, on art and design. You are very much responsible for your part of the game.

      Cons

      Can be a bit repetitive, and hard to have a huge impact. Crunch is fairly low. Some intense periods during a project happen, almost guaranteed but not that much usually. Being part of ea entails a lot of things, among them not being able to work on games on the side.

      I worked at DICE (Sweden) full-time

      Pros

      - no crunch encouragement - always on the the look out to avoid over time - good benefits - great technology - good projects

      Cons

      - middle management is quite inconsistent. You can find great managers that really get your back and other pretty sloppy - Common manners and social skills at leopard's spots. You can find very considerate people and other quite rude

      Advice to Management

      Keep on the great work done following the Nordic socialist tradition, keep on developing solid technology and cure a little bit more the choosing of the middle management personnel.

      Pros

      * No overtime, ever * 6 weeks paid vacation * Office is luxurious and fancy. * Free EA games, Free meals, Free massages, Free Gym membership, Free glasses * The people working there are top-of-class developers. Great, great talent everywhere. * If you like FPS games, this is the place to be

      Cons

      * If you don't want to make Battlefield for the rest of your life.. don't come. :P * Design discipline is weak and treated as second class citizens. Everything is run by various art departments. Sometimes it feels like people are more concerned about their portfolio reel / nice looking trailer than they are creating a fun and engaging GAME. * EA as a publisher gives great security and comfort. But they won't give a...

      Advice to Management

      Focus on gameplay and design. Your games are gorgeous, but that won't keep players playing for a long period.
