    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large variety of work. Tons of smart people. Cool work environment. Lots of perks. Decent gym. Bad coworkers don't last very long.

    Cons

    EA is huge. You will get ground down by management. Your friends will get laid off. Lots of producer types trying to make their mark at any cost. Crunch time is often driven by bad decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciation goes a long way. Management is a bunch of dudes for the most part so brogrammer culture is still pretty heavy. Hire more female DDs. Hire more female everything. Could TABU be more male dominated?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Electronic Arts in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward interview. Talked about my projects and skills. Make sure you know your C++. It will help if you have a game to show them. Best advice I can give is to be yourself, don't be fake, and just talk about what which EA projects interest you.
