    Great First Job

    Pros

    I worked at Maxis as a contract animator - I always felt like everyone was happy with their job. I was sad to leave because it was such a healthy work environment.

    Cons

    Being my first job, I really wanted an in person studio experience. Due to COVID, this isn't something they could've changed, but I think it would've made the new animators feel closer. If you're not on the same team as someone, you never see them. I 'worked with' animators who I never spoke with for over a year.

    Game Team acquired by EA

    Feb 6, 2023 - Development Director

    Pros

    * Pay (increased) * my small game team was acquired by EA, they let us continue to conduct business as usual

    Cons

    * Upon Acquisition: The amount of numerous (and usually unnecessary) "on-boarding" meetings was overwhelming and generally effected productivity due to the entire team attending (mandatory). Worse than that, team members were scheduled at different times throughout the day / week. * We were a mobile game company upon being acquired. A few months later they drastically reduced our team size due to the 'entire EA mobile division' finances / budget. To their credit, they did allow 3 weeks to find another within the company. Unfortunately I found one, but the job posting was incorrect and ultimately by the time the Finance department realized it I was out of time (short version: I was to be remote on another team but at the last minute they said the job posting should have never been listed as remote and California pay vs that location was too high ...even though I offered to take the pay decrease anyways)
