    I have been working at Electronic Arts as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Super talented and hardworking colleagues. The sense of teamwork and collective advancement is very strong.

    Cons

    long hours without reasonable compensation. I was hired as a junior engineer and was given tasks I was not yet qualified to do and I wasn't receiving any proper training .

    Advice to Management

    Put the effort in training junior engineers and facilitate their connection to more experienced people. Also try to hire more staff for teams that are under a lot of pressure.
