BioWare hailed as a top Canadian employer

<i>The Financial Post</i> names Edmonton-based developer one of the country's 10 best places to work.


Mass Effect

After Electronic Arts announced last week that it had acquired BioWare-Pandemic from Elevation Partners in a deal worth $860 million, BioWare cofounder Dr. Ray Muzyka told GameSpot that the sale meant more opportunities for the studio, but added that "nothing would change" about the way they make games.

That "don't mess with success" attitude was bolstered today as BioWare revealed that it has been named to Canadian magazine The Financial Post's 10 Best Companies to Work For. The Edmonton-based studio has appeared in the Post's annual Top 100 Employers list three times before this year, but this is its first time cracking the top 10. The list is culled from thousands of submissions for Canadian companies in a variety of industries, and seeks to recognize those with the best employment practices, including better pay, welcome perks, and more comprehensive benefits.

This is not the first time a game developer has cracked the Post Top 10 list. Last year, Vivendi Universal Games (now simply Vivendi Games) made the list for its Radical Entertainment studio.
