    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Excellent wages + nice perks (Free games, ice cream, masseur on site, work events, raffles, meditation rooms to chill etc.)
    -Language bonus sweetens up the paycheck further
    -Constantly evolving training and workflow
    -EA fosters and supports its employees, offering options to improve and grow through various channels
    -Monthly 1 x 1 Meetings with Team Manager to stay on top of things
    -Very nice office building with great tech (Those new PCs are sweet!)
    -Interesting insight in how the gaming industry actually works, I was honestly surprised how like 75% of the EA hate is based on blatant ignorance/wrong information
    -Galway is a lovely place to live with reasonable rent

    Cons

    -Blackout periods for vacation periods during peak season
    -If you are working in T1 can have a rather monotone call centre quality whereas Specialist roles are scarce
    -Focus on yearly releases like FIFA, Madden etc. is dominant which can be disheartening if these aren't games you enjoy
    - Even though a Yearly Bonus Scheme exists based on performance, it's nothing special
    -Information takes time to reach Advisers/Specialists who then have to take the heat from players
    -

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees in the loop more
    Offer game time to employees to gain hands on product knowledge
    Acknowledge that stats are highly biased and often out of the advisor's control due to issues only Studio can fix

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Electronic Arts (Burnaby, BC (Canada)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I was recommended for an interview by someone who worked there up until recently. Brought in for an interview at their Burnaby campus. First 15 minutes were them telling me about what they do at CDS, projects they're working on, what they hope to do with data in the future. Then it was at least 30 min of questions about statistics, machine learning, sql.

    Interview Questions

    • For SQL, he showed me a piece of paper with about 4 different tables on it, all related to a warehouse maybe: one for customers, one for items, one for orders, one for shipments. He gave a scenario where a manager wants a report every day of all the shipments that went out that day and the report should include orderId, itemName, shipmentDate or something like that. What query would you use to get these things.   Answer Question
    • If you were the CEO of Shoppers Drug Mart and you wanted a display of the total revenue for each of your stores, what would be the best way to display this info?   1 Answer
    • What are the basic assumptions underlying linear regression?   Answer Question
    • How would you measure the error of a linear regression model?   Answer Question

    • What is an "outlier"? Give an example.   Answer Question
