I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 5 years)
Benefits, good pay, and room to grow.
Restructuring seems common, outsourcing is growing
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Austin, TX) in December 2017.
I had a brief screener with an HR, which was very helpful and informational. Then I got a second phone interview, this time with the TD for the position and was asked to program in C# *over the phone*. Not Skype, not a Google Doc, it was done over the phone *verbally*.
This is the single worst interview that I have ever received in my 4 years, it is completely unfair to applicants, especially considering the company works *in a visual medium*. Other AAA companies at least Skype you and screen share for these kinds of interviews. Other companies have even done a Google Doc share. I've never programmed in an interview setting without a whiteboard or some kind of visual aid to clarify to the interviewer. You would never be expected to do this in the real world, either.
