EA won America’s worst company because of internet trolls. In what world is a GAMING company worse than companies doing actual harm, like pharmaceutical companies jacking up drug prices, oil companies drilling at anything they can find or automobile companies dodging recalls?
Your comment was that they didn’t win it for no reason. They won the vote with like 78% of the vote because it was linked on 4chan/Reddit/etc and people were brigading the poll... So yes, they did win for no real reason. It would be like me putting up a vote for most popular person in the world, having all my friends vote on it and then quoting it as fact.
I don’t know I work at EA now and while yes it is stressful sometimes, it’s a far cry from shitty treatment. We have excellent benefits and management has been very transparent. EA missed target by $700M and they are only laying off maximum 350 people in very much non essential roles. These people are all being given severance and opportunities to apply internally to open positions. My org is already considering candidates that were impacted by this. Laying off less than 350 people with such a massive earnings miss is actually pretty commendable.
