Based on the heart of Guildford, EA (Electronic Arts Ltd) is a pleasure to work for with its relaxed environment, plenty of social events (including board games night, summer & Christmas party and generally a nice creative vibe).

There is opportunity to move round the company but other roles have limited progression.

You are expected to be on call 24/7. The company restructures every two years, so there is no job security. People that don’t deliver within the company are not held responsible and those that make up for their inadequacies pay the price. People with no management experience are left leading teams, creating a toxic environment where bullying is prevalent. And the company is so male heavy, it might as well be a fraternity house.

Job culture is fun, with lots of engagement and Employee Resource Groups available.

Advancement opportunities are lacking at this juncture, as specific Orgs mature and new skill sets are needed - it's becoming more and more likely for external candidates, rather than internal hires, to move into open positions within some Orgs within the business.


Pay and compensation are lower-end for Tech and Media companies - the video game industry is growing exponentially, but salaries do not tend to meet this growth when compared to trends of similar industries.
Pros
great social life
Cons
constant restructuring

Great place to work. The workplace culture is very welcoming and relaxed. There is a great sense of teamwork and collaboration at EA. It is great to work alongside people who are passionate about what they do.

Opportunity to work on large scale projects and advance your career, but constant organisational restructure and lack of understanding of international market needs can be difficult.

The work was interesting but the continual crunch and poor product management made EA difficult to work at for long stretches of time.

This job varied from tedium to fun. A typical day involved testing computer games for faults. Sometimes this was to written test sheet, sometimes we were given free reign to test how we would like. When faults were found they were entered into an online database called devtrack, which the developers used to fix them. After fixing we tested the fixes and updated the issue. I also did language testing and third party requirement testing.

The co-workers and lower levels of management were pleasant to work with and we had friendly atmosphere. We played five-a-side football during our lunch breaks and after work. We could also play our own computer games during lunch times.


The only downsides was the low salary and low job security. As a temporary job, we were only allowed to work there 11 months per year and when a game came to the end of its development the team was at risk of being made redundant unless there was another game to work on.
Pros
Low cost computer games, sometimes fun testing games, free dinners on late shifts, opportunities to work abroad.
Cons
low salary, low job security
