Productive, Expectations of hard work yet FUN!
Development Director - FIFA Franchise (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 12 January 2014
Great place to work, amazing amenities (gym, pilates/yoga classes, cafeteria, arcades on-campus). Some of my best mentors are from EA, they have great managers and leaders there. Every year the franchised product needs to get out the door, so there is no room for "time wasting" which taught be a lot about failing fast and recovering quickly. Making mistakes was encouraged as long as they were learned from. Amazing coworkers and team camaraderie and team building activities to ensure people were "gelling" throughout the project lifecycle. Work/life balanced has improved incredibly at EA, they're not given enough credit for this.
Campus Amenities, great people/team collaboration
Very little room for "process improvement", structure already set in place, can be political at times.
