Employees rate Madrid 2.8% higher than the overall average
I worked at Electronic Arts (More than 5 years)
Friendly and relaxed atmosphere with people from all the cultures. LGBT-friendly.
Very short temporary contracts. Sometimes 2-week long. No promotion opportunities. Salaries not updated since 2011. Non-existent personal-development for those temps who would like to apply for secondments / internships. Working schedule that breaks whole day (10-19). Atrocious incompetence of HR department. Remote localization within Madrid (outside M-40).
Advice to Management
Revise your HR strategy in Loc department. It´s the only real issue.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Madrid (Spain)) in August 2015.
Applied online. Then call to set an interview. It was 1:1 interview with a product manager, not very technical (what they do, my background, english level). Later they sent me 2 test exercises to complete in less than 24h (one was simple, the other was more complex). After that, a second interview (more technical this time, about my solution).
