I worked at PopCap Games full-time (More than 3 years)
Great people and fun atmosphere. The company lets you be yourself and work and different projects. You can learn a lot and advance your skills.
The culture changed when the company was purchased by EA games. They department I was in was over managed and the managers were not that good at their jobs.
Advice to Management
Let the members of your teams work independently and feel that they have the room to fail.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PopCap Games (Seattle, WA) in December 2014.
Interview process was a personal one with 3 in the panel. The questions were pretty direct about the role. Responsibilities were clearly communicated. It was more of a formal discussion.
