Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Burnaby, BC

I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Mature company that normally get it. There are lots of senior engineers that will not put up with crazy over time and the like. Not to say it is easy but that is part of the fun too.

Cons

It will depend a lot on the team however. Starting out in games is hard however once you have worked a few years things get better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to take risks on good games. We have spent too much on some of the companies we have bought. Star wars didn't turn out so well.

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

    Pros

    - A lot of advancement opportunities
    - Great office looks and feel

    Cons

    - Cutthroat culture
    - Incredibly horrible compensation, even after several years of work and 2 promotions (more responsibilities and stress but no salary adjustment)
    - Preferred quantity over quality in workforce, resulting in poor work environment and unacceptable productivity/headcount ratio

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire career QA staff
    - Pay within the norm of software quality assurance
