Employee Review

    Current Employee, more than 1 year

    Trying to be AAA, but not sure how.

    Pros

    Steady employment in the tough Vancouver market. Lots of board games for lunch breaks. Cheap Beer.

    Cons

    Studio is heavily mired in ego and politics. There is a common rule of "don't rock the boat". Don't bring up your issues with management on changes in direction. Don't try to implement better team management and work practices. Just keep your head down, talk about your issues outside of the office and do your work. Deadlines are consistently ignored, and blame is shifted downwards. Project managers have a hard time with task management. Engine is also very primitive. The tech really needs to be updated to support a AAA title. If Vancouver had more competition, this studio would have a hard time keeping their staff. The management in charge of this studio does not have a great amount of experience doing AAA titles, and are making some very odd decisions. Dead Rising 2 missed multiple deadlines for Capcom, resulting in no bonuses for staff (even though it was dangled like a carrot many times).

    Pros

    Working with super high-profile and respected IPs in the video game industry. Great co-workers and team members.

    Cons

    - The C levels and upper management (Japan) have no respect for employees or work life balance. - Benefits package is barebones with very little to keep employees going. - Despite a totally functioning remote company because of the pandemic, higher ups still constantly threaten to make people come back to the office without giving anyone the option not to even if they can function 100% from home.
