    I have been working at BioWare full-time for more than 10 years

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at BioWare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were good.

    Most disorganized art department I've ever worked for. Incredibly stressful and cut-throat work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team members when they bring up concerns and issues. Not only will it improve morale but it'll save money, improve the project and reduce turnover.
