I worked at BioWare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great People
Good learning experience
Can learn many aspects of business from here

Cons

At the time it was a very large studio with 500+ people. So there is a lot of bureaucracy to communicate with anyone not part of your team. The approval processes and number of meetings can occasionally be disruptive to work flow.

    I don't have too many cons to report. I had a great experience during my tenure at the studio.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BioWare as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the QA department was a great experience.
    My direct boss was very easy going and explained things very well.
    Loved my team and my tasks.
    Was my first gaming company I worked for, so I was able to get my foot in the door that opened up lots of possibilities.

    Cons

    I was led on that I would be brought on to the company full-time as opposed to being a contractor. I did an amazing job and worked my way up the QA ladder, but still got the boot once my contract was up.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of spending ridiculous amounts of money on breakfast every morning, use that money towards bringing dedicated and hard-working contractors on full-time.
