      Pros

      Work environment - iif you aint interested in working then this is the right place for you, Dress code- people dress in whatever way they want, from night wears to shorts and slippers

      Cons

      full of Uncouth people, unprofessional, no growth for freshers, very low salary, fake promises, most companies are not willing to accept EA employees or gaming experience even if they do they are always underpaid in other organizations also coz of low package offered by EA, most of the people will be on contract and they hire people as TFT (Temporary full time employee) saying its on EA's pay roll but dont provide all benefits like leaves and game points , so if u are joining please better be careful or atleast know everything....

      Pros

      very cool work environment for gamer : ) best shift timings for girls.. You get a chance to work on different platforms. no matter how much experience you have,you get many opportunities when you leave EA.

      Cons

      no growth & low salaries for contractors. less recognition,Politics & firing across the teams especially more for contractors in India,even though they are fit for the position. For people who want to continue in EA ,they have to play games but I feel this wont help in the long run as far mobile & manual testing is considered as growth for automation & various tools are not used in India center.

      Pros

      The work environment is very lively. You get ample chance to express your thoughts and the management listens to your opinions. The dress code is wearing what you like and amenities for spending leisure time are wonderful

      Cons

      The senior given is based upon the goodness of relationship people have with senior management. Manly able people are left behind when it comes to giving raises.
