      Pros

      Excellent work/life balance. Outstanding Leadership team that is driving an inclusive company culture and holding all of us accountable. Caring, compassionate, and fun work environment. Super smart people.

      Cons

      Some teams delivering games do have challenging work schedules. We have work to do on DEI but moving in the right direction.

      EA Games is an amazing company

      Pros

      Amazing work environment. Respect is show to all levels of employees no matter their job, even lowly quality assurance playtesters.

      Cons

      Honestly...I can't think of much that I would say is a con. I guess if I had to list something, it would be that the hourly wage for playtesters was a little on the low side at $12.50 / hour.

      Pros

      Growth opportunities and fun to work environment!

      Cons

      Games are the bread and butter of EA! If you are not in one of the game development teams, your work might not be recognized that well.

      In need of leadership, not management

      Pros

      Fun work environment, great employees

      Cons

      C level individuals collect massive annual bonuses despite laying off employees when a game tanks. I witnessed management laughing and making jokes about how white their sneakers were as they walked from meeting room to meeting room to furlough people. Managers would frequently dodge, reschedule and no-show to meetings in regards to contractors inquiring about trying to renew their employment.

      Awesome Company!

      Pros

      This job is incredibly fun. The work environment is very inclusive and they are flexible when it comes to your work schedule if for some reason you need to switch to part-time for a different full-time shift.

      Cons

      There’s not much room to grow, only because contracts last 3- months and you can only work here a maximum of 3 contract terms.
