    No one has ever worked for Electronic Arts (EA) gaming company. Their video games are all 👽 sent.

    Depends on the teams. Overall working at Redwood City HQ was great.

    Pros:
    Good campus
    Onsite daycare
    Cool people

    Cons:
    No free lunch
    Politics

    EA is a terrible company to work for. It is literally one of the most notorious company in the gaming industry for having the worst WLB

      Appreciate the insights. This would be more in product management so I’m hoping the WLB would be better than developers. Do you guys think you had good exit opportunities? I don’t want to limit myself just to the gaming industry going forward

      The PMs I knew had good wlb and they all went to FAANG for PM roles afterwards. Definitely great exit opportunities.

    Really enjoyed my time at EA (2013-2016). The culture was fun/hard working; seemed like most people in my org were high performers. The company is incredibly efficient and has plateaued in terms of margin efficiency, they need to generate other sources of revenue to maintain the momentum they had pre Anthem.

      Appreciate this insight! When you left EA, were other companies impressed with your experience at EA? I want to make sure I don’t pidgeonhole myself into a particular industry

      Yes, but only because I went to another gaming company and they appreciated the insights on EA
