      Pros

      Great people, supportive team. You feel like you're part of something big. Great culture. Good benefits.

      Cons

      Nothing really. EA will open doors for you, so long as you want to take those opportunities. It is what you make it.

      You're Just Here to Work

      Jul 30, 2021 - Quality Verification in Melbourne

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      - Friendly atmosphere with Melbourne employees. - Supportive policies lead by the US during the pandemic. Local studio implementation is another matter to consider. - You'd be working for EA, just the name.

      Cons

      - Working with remote teams (mostly based in Hyderabad, India). Culture and communication problems arises regardless of inclusivity policies. - Obvious disengagement with so-called managers in India versus Australia. Managers in India are clueless on Australian work culture and loves to micromanage. Even understanding reports is a challenge. - So-called managers or leadership are in the position because they worked in the company that EA bought for x number of years. Very poor people, growth and management experience. - No real leadership or change advocacy in local studio; lack of skills. You'd wonder why leads are called "leads" when there's no leadership at all. In my stay, I have observed all talks but no actual change which has become demoralising and happy to have left. - "Frat boy culture" and too much swearing! You'd think a large organisation like EA should have policies in abusive languages, but no, this studio accepts that as a norm. - Poor and reactive process. Discouraging colleagues with constant complaints. - Projects are not exciting and very repetitive! - Pay isvery low (decided by the Indian team).
