    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    EA is a very successful company, so you'll have the opportunity to work on some great games. Also, they have a whole lot of job opportunities outside of working directly on games.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work, hours can get bad. But things were way worse 10 years ago, and a lot of teams have made vast improvements.

    Applications Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Austin, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter emailed and setup a time for a phone screen. Was a very amicable conversation, talked about benefits, the position etc. Then setup a time for a technical phone screen with the hiring manager. Terrible experience henceforth. The interviewer was rude and arrogant, and cut me off at every answer that I tried to provide. He tried to question my background and my experience. I told him clearly at which skills and technologies I have worked with and have not, but he nevertheless kept on asking me questions on the same stuff that I never worked on. It was more like an interrogation than a professional interview with an adult. Seemed to me the phone interview was a mere formality. The guy was never serious about considering my candidature. I lost interest that moment. The interviewer's arrogance, snobbishness and lack of basic professional etiquette and humility was a big turn off(who would want to work with a guy like that to begin with ..!!)...Waste of time !! Informed the recruiter that very evening that I am not interested in proceeding forward.
