    I worked at Electronic Arts as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Despite what seems like strict corporate hierarchy, it's very easy to talk to high-level executives. I worked with a senior director for my internship project and comfortable enough waltzing over to his desk to ask questions. Was also able to meet the CTO in person (more than once) and talk about my project.
    - Very open-minded about letting me work on what I wanted to explore.
    - Recruiters were very flexible and easy to work with.
    - Gaming culture which means it's perfectly normal to play video games with friends during breaks.
    - Generally an understanding for taking days off to show a friend around town as long as work is getting done.
    - Great work culture for women! I never experienced any pushback (or questions really) for not being a gamer.

    Cons

    - Internship program is still quite small, especially if you're not at the main headquarters in Redwood City.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Seattle, WA (US)).

    Interview

    I applied online via the EA website. About a week later, I got an email requesting a phone interview. In that interview with a hiring manager, we discussed my educational, career, and research history, mostly background stuff, very light. Hiring manager was very kind and responsive.

    Following that, about a week later, I had a technical phone interview where I coded in a shared document. General questions relates to different data types, followed by an implementation of a cpp datatype conversion algorithm. Wasn't too challenging, and the interviewer walked me through a couple critiques and the problem itself.

    A couple weeks past without response, but fortunately ended with a request for an on-site interview. I met with them a couple days later, had a series of interviews with engineers that I would be working with, both technical and personality interviews, lasting about 5-6 hours in all. I coded on a white board in response to general algorithm questions, mostly pseudo code. Nothing too difficult, and all very interesting and honestly kind of fun. Interviewers were kind and assisted in guiding towards the right solution.

    A couple days later, I got an offer and accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • (Phone interview) Signed an NDA, so no specifics, but I was asked about how I would convert from one datatype to another datatype efficiently.   Answer Question
    • (On-site interview) Signed an NDA, so no specifics, but I was asked about how I would implement a couple algorithms that acted on various cpp data types. Also general algorithm problems related to social media tasks.   Answer Question
