A great place to work! Best benefits around.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

ProsPeople are fun, easy going, friendly and cool
Managers are experienced, fun and great to work with
Best benefits package in the entire games industry
PTO system is non-confrontational (online form you fill out; manager clicks yes or no; you are rarely denied vacation as long as you have time accrued)
Company shutdown at Christmas through New Years = about 2 or more weeks Christmas vacation, fully paid, every year.
Salary is competitive
Large networks
EA Want Ads is wayyy better than Craigslist!
TGIF - free beer, chilled drinks and snacks where lots of people mingle, play ping pong, generally have a good time
Company Christmas parties are amazing!

ConsSkill-wise does not give much room to grow; not challenging enough
Company is too afraid to take risks; will end up doing the same games and same mistakes over and over again.
Frequent lay-offs, especially around Christmas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
