A great place to work.
QA Analyst (Former Employee), Austin, TXFebruary 24, 2013
Pros: free breakfast and meals during crunch overtimes.
Cons: management turnover and lack of focus.
Usually I would get into the office early, go into the break roon and grab some breakfast, and then head to my desk. After the Manager gave us our tasks for the day we would break into our teams and start work. We started as QA on the low end of the totem pole but our manager was great about always adding new training and tips into what we were doing. – more... By the end of my contract I was on the end game strike force which was in charge of testing all end game content. – less

Productive and fun workplace
Assistant. Project Manager (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 22, 2012
Pros: free breakfast, loaded game cabinet, and awsome game swag.
Cons: 1 year contracts with little chance of conversion to full time.
Bioware was a great company to work for with a great group of talented and driven employs.
My duties entailed the localization of Star Wars: The Old Republic game and marketing content.
I found management to be very supportive.
Co-works are also always willing to help.
The most difficult part the project was getting information from the marketing team.
The – more... most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the final product on the established deadlines. – less
