EA named one of British Columbia’s “Dream Employers”

Friday, 6th December 2013 19:56 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

EA was named as one of British Columbia’s “Dream Employers” during a recent survey.

The survey was conducted by Insights West in partnership with the Miles Employment Group and Business in Vancouver.

BC residents were asked to “think of as many as three organizations they would consider as a top employer,” according to EA. “After the results were tabulated, ten private organizations made the list, including EA.”

Factors mentioned by participants were work-life balance, compensation, career development, benefits, culture, opportunities for advancement and flexible hours.

EA Canada’s campus in Vancouver is home to approximately 1,300 employees working on franchises such as FIFA, NHL hockey and UFC. PopCap Vancouver is located in the region as well.

    Ah but that’s the thing, I actually do know how it is at that exact branch of EA.

    Now, let me clarify, it’s not a bad place to work at (it’s not Foxconn). But let’s just say there are much better options given a position is available (very scarce in Vancouver).

    They do have a sick employee store, all EA games for like $20.

    So this is a survey by people who don’t work there but think it would be a ‘dream’ to work there?

    That would make sense as the facility is amazing. 16,000 sq ft gym, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, cafe, two Starbucks, good store with the cheap games. If you get with a good team it’s great but if you’re on one to the teams with the constant eye from above then watch out. I loved/hated my time at EA in equal measure.
