You can have a lot of clout with some features and design
Team can be a bit disorganized or focus efforts on lower priority issues.

A good work life balance Fully remote work
Below industry standard pay Flat hierarchy leads to lack of accountability Leadership does accept constructive criticism well

- Good team of people -Benefits are mediocre -you get an extended wallet for health insurance starting at 1000 dollars and goes up from there depending on your need and your negotiation skills. Means you pay out of pocket and then get reimbursed for the costs . Once you use your wallet up though you have to pay everything out of pocket so it would really suck if you are unhealthy and are sick - long term. -A good hit (hempire) it is an old game , over 5 yrs old now . - they are ambitious -they have a bunch of Canadian awards about workplace even though i feel like that was all a lie and just for good PR . not really a positive .
-LBC Studios (Langley British Columbia ) that's what the studio brand means . Which is a weird way to brand a game studio . -lack of leadership -lack of training for inexperienced employees - salary isn't as competitive as it should be - They don't really have there own identity (policies ) they just stick with what the basic rules are in the province for salary raises, and severance checks . The bare minimum . - Lack of overall identity of the studio . The upper management really lacks any sort of experience running a game studio . They are also not overly passionate about tech / or games . Its more of a studio where they believe it can get rich quick . -Hempire is the only successful title that was mainly all outsourced . -No in house successes yet. - Lack of vision for the brand of the studio holistically . -Need leaders with years of gaming experience . -Listen to your employees more . - People at the studio have rose colored glasses on when it comes to how things are going . Most of all the reviews are pretty fake . - Oh yea never worked at a studio where literally half your or more of your sprint consists of days/hours of meetings for everyone . I think most meetings should just be between leads . - They believe in collaborating as a team , which is all good and fun but its beneficial to be inspired vs collab on art for example to many cooks in the kitchen make it a mess. -Leadership needs a AD or Creative Director to make things more on brand. -Burnout is real at this studio .2

1. Nice bosses and team to work with; 2. Always get support that you need; 3. Remote work;
I can not think of any for now.

Collaborative and positive work environment Flat management Work life balance is highly valued by the team, able to have time to relax and keep stress manageable. Overtime asks are very rare, this is not something I have seen in the games industry elsewhere.
Not a lot of downsides from my personal perspective and experience to mention. Perhaps LBC might not be the place for you if you do not like to collaborate or work only on your own?

Welcoming and collaborative team, individuals who are passionate about their work and success of the team and studio, open and honest communication, growing mentorship opportunities, awards for best place to work for mental wellness and diversity and inclusion, fun social events and activities, continuous improvement for day to day and for future goals
I can't think of any cons.

Excellent for personal growth, great work and life balance, and very trusting leadership team.
The studio is currently small still - not everything has been structured yet but definitely on the road to improving that.

- Flexible hours - Open communication and high levels of transparency reinforced in our studio values - Competitive compensation with a rare list of perks including vacation, sick, and personal days - Scrappy start-up feel but strong business focus and care - Lots of room to self-improve, and management is very much interested in building a culture around personal and professional growth - Mistakes and processes are regularly reviewed, and those discussions are encouraged - Not a place where you can coast - Strong desire from management to recognize the value of their people
- We learn by failing, and we've had our share of failures to date - Weed-focused games not for everyone (but anyone working in games should have learned this lesson immediately) - Remote nature of much of our work can be a double-edged sword--if you aren't a strong communicator, you may hurt the team and your prospects here, and this opens the door to mistakes and miscommunications
