    Pros

    Fun environment without much pressure.

    Cons

    People management, project cycle is very short and EA i believe is a company who will let go many employees.. may be that's why they hire so many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do not let smart people walk away that easily

    A great place to start your career if you really like the gaming industry. Plenty of people that are willing to help you learn and develop your skills. A very friendly and "buzzing environment" :)

    Low income salaries for starters (QA/Devs..etc) compared to competition :(

    More automation in game testing as it will bring more value for both QA & Dev and the product.
