Work life balance is bad

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Respawn Entertainment full-time for more than a year

Pros

- The Studio genuinely cares about the products they create. - You feel part of a team. - Upper Management and Directors want to keep their people happy. - An amazing pool of talented people. - EA's... best studio hands down. - Amazing Benefits and Fair Compensation. RRSP Matching and Bonuses.

Cons

- On Live Service Games some teams do not get any breaks. Season after season there is expected Overtime and some weekend work to hit deadlines.

Advice to Management

Keep up the amazing work. You have built a gem of a studio and EA is very lucky to have you as part of their company.
