    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Pandemic Studios full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pandemic changed my life, and there's not many companies that I can say that about. The comeradie and dedication that everyone at this company had to making the most awesome games imaginable was breathtaking. The culture of learning and improvement made working there a joy, all of it bottom-up initiatives suggested by employees and embraced and empowered by management. I wouldn't change a moment of working there.

    Cons

    The money was terrible, the benefits were terrible, the hours were incredibly long. And none of that mattered, because it was the best place on Earth.

    Advice to Management

    EA, you let this gem go too soon (which you probably suspect, given how many vets of Pandemic went on to Riot Games and 343 Studios.) Sure, they'd made some mistakes -- big ones -- but rarely had I seen a company take such immediate steps to correct those errors and move in the right direction.
