I worked at Electronic Arts as a contractor (More than a year)
Great people, diverse teams, get to be involved with big anticipated projects. The job isn't the most fun thing in the world, but it's not terrible. The office has free tea and coffee and soft drinks with a huge discount. You get free shirts.
The salaries are okay, overtime is payed, but rarely required.
A conveyor belt with very little stability. Next to zero career opportunities. You're expendable and the managment is ready to replace you any time. Each year a bunch of people leave and another bunch is there to replace them. Contracts are short, which is very inconvenient, even though they get extended almost always.
Work hours are a bit inconvenient. You start late and finish late, leaving little free time for you in the evenings.
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).
