    Truth

    Pros

    - 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 .

    Cons

    -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 .

    Great place to grow

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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?

    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.

    Pros

    Caveat: I still work here. But this is an honest review. A lot of companies make claims about flat structure, work/life balance, looking after employees, but LBC actually walks the walk.

    Cons

    I'll find it hard to deal with second best ever again if i have to, honestly.
