QA Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 February 2018
Over several years at EA I had some pretty amazing experiences. I was able to explore many paths and roles with quite a bit of support. As with any corporation, making any types of large scale changes is difficult and slow, but possible with the proper support. I would have to say that the best part of the job was working with such talented people on such amazing products. I would recommend EA to those starting out. Moving into a higher level role can be more difficult as people at the top don't tend to move out and climbing the ladder can feel more like standing in place for years at a time.

Graphic Artist, Mobile Game, Tablets (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 November 2017
For a first experience as a professional artist, EA Mobile was a great experience. Located in the heart of downtown Montreal, EA mobile used to be thriving with multiple mobile game project team, creative talents, great producers and managers. Unfortunately, for reasons no one could control, the studio was shut down a few years ago. The great news is that EA is now back in Montreal, on Stanley street.

If you love video games, start here. You will work crazy hours and not-so crazy hours for little pay but you get to be immersed in the video gaming culture, process, development and ultimately rewarding experience of making something that can last a long, long time.

Assistant Producer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 July 2017
Working here has taught me many things. Some good, some bad. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. Management can be hit or miss, but that is similar to any other place of employment. The workplace culture and benefits were always great.
Software Engineer in Test (Current Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 26 June 2017
Great company, great people. It can get super intense when release cycle happens. My direct manager is super nice and good to us. However, big company problem. The higher up management need to know what they are doing.

Paid training, fast paced, never a dull moment, awesome teammates, cash prizes, weekly contests. Staff and employees very helpful and always willing to lend a hand. They teach you from the ground up. Always Challenging.
Volunteer video game tester at Electronic Arts (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 8 June 2016
The typical day would include me arriving at 15 minutes before a scheduled time to sign in with the front desk, then going on to participate in surveys as well as play new content and give feedback which may help game developers.
