I've worked for Electronic Arts for three years. I've challenged myself in many ways and succeeded far beyond my initial dreams upon joining the company. I began as a marketing asset creator and have blossomed into a strong creative voice. Those around me trust my creative intuition and I've also learned to trust my creative instincts more than ever before. I'd consider myself a valued asset with a passionate, hungry attitude who always goes above and beyond what is expected of me.

The best thing about EA is getting to work with talented people. Unfortunately, it is a very large company, and many business decisions are made in a very impersonal manner, ultimately leaving the players with a sense of EA being a soulless money-hungry entity.
