its just an ok company, nothing special

Assistant Producer I (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

Proslooks good on the resume
free meals depending on crunch time and team budget

Consno consistant free meals or any other perks unless you are top tier management
super high costing on-site daycare
very poor-to-zero EA University class options or support to learn new things
bad higher management leading to poor middle management with company goals
very slow to change anything
behind the times in mostly everything, with bigger egos than creativity ratio with most game design teams

Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is low in most every studio because upper management keeps trodding down a path of bad decision making. This impacts performance and creativity and inspiration down to the lowest positions, so the corruption is deep. Overall, you just don't have good designs with your games which leads to bad systems (lol agile) and even worse QA.
