I worked at Electronic Arts

Pros

I always looked forward to coming into work. My contributions were always considered, and usually made it into the final product.

Cons

San Francisco and the Bay Area are fun and beautiful, but the cost of living will catch you off-gaurd if you don't do the research.

    Pros

    Can be a fun environment depending on project, project team members and team leader. Diverse coworkers, good exposure to industry with hands on involvement in game development and solid teamwork type atmosphere.

    Cons

    competitive environment, experience often dependent on team members and team leader, difficult to get promoted, somewhat overworked and underpaid, no leverage for employees bc there is always a long line of replacements waiting to take your spot if you rock the boat, rigid hierarchy of departmental management, development personnel (sometimes understandably so) maintains distance from qa personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find better ways to promote within other areas of the company. there may be a lot of folks to weed out but i think the qa staff has a lot to offer and the qa experience is a good test to see how employees fit into the ea team as a whole (not just tech jobs).
