Mentorship, salary, flexibility, food, people and culture

Barely-qualified Software Engineer Intern manages to succeed through hard work, determination and helpful colleagues.
Orlando, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to really make changes and have an impact on a AAA game title.

The work environment allowed for significant expansion as an intern.


Downers

I did not receive credit to help finish undergrad (This was mostly UCF's policy, not EA's)


Advice to Potential Interns

The opportunity at EA exists if you are willing to take it. Some interns failed through a lack of determination and closed-mindedness. Only take the job if you really love games.


Sample Interview Questions

Typical tech interview. Easy things that prove you have a comprehension of programming, and questions which are targeted at displaying your passion for gaming.


Advice to Management

Training is almost non-existent. The whole process is very "Trial-by-Fire". While this worked well for myself, it would be much nicer to have relevant training series.


Would You Recommend

Yes

The most amazing job ever!
Redwood City, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people.


Downers

The drive.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be there to get the job, network. Be nice to everyone. Make sure everyone wants you to come back. EVERyONE! And you'll be coming back. Work hard. Don't be afraid to work extra hours if you need to or to leave on time if you need to. ASK QUESTIONS. They'll respect you far more for asking than if you just sit there stumped. Enjoy yourself and your colleagues. Make friends. Make it an experience of a lifetime. It is all up to you.


Sample Interview Questions

What is OO programming? What are the trade-offs of virtual functions? What kind of projects have you worked on? What do you want to do?


Advice to Management

Have more managers like Tony? He was amazing!


Would You Recommend

Yes

4.9 of 5 stars

Making meaningful contributions to one of the most influential AAA gaming franchises in the industry.
Redwood City, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Fantastic networking opportunity, created valuable friendships/connections. Flexibility to work meaningful overtime and make the most of the internship. Ownership of parts of the final product, possible by the team trusting me with real work as opposed to "intern work." Phenomenal learning experience about the workflow/structure standpoint in my desired industry, as well as cutting edge tools in the gaming industry. Great for establishing the work-life balance that I will be practicing post-graduation.


Downers

It felt so short, and that I had to leave at a critical time for the project. It would have also been nice to have another intern in my specific department.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is an internship experience that is extremely rewarding for someone that likes to dive into new tools and learn quickly. It gives you an opportunity to work among industry professionals and push yourself to leave a lasting impression on your team. You can expect your hard work to be meaningful and relevant.


Sample Interview Questions

Having had a similar internship prior, the interview questions were mostly focusing on that experience.

Difficult, all-the-while extremely rewarding internship experience.
Orlando, FL | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was given real, meaningful tasks to work on that I was able to see become part of production.


Downers

Nothing, really.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would suggest to go out of your comfort zone and work on areas of development that you have not before. I was able to develop a ton of great new skills because my boss gave me new, unique opportunities.


Sample Interview Questions

I honestly cannot remember.


Advice to Management

Honestly--I loved everything. I guess the only thing I could suggest are some more intern social activities.


Would You Recommend

Yes

Gained great experience and was given the responsibility to implement major features.
Redwood City, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The overall educational experience was amazing. The office quickly accepted me, and swiftly ramped up the difficulty of my tasks. They respected me enough to give me actual work. And, the work was enjoyable and very educational. The general culture of the office was also very warm.


Downers

There were some failures in communication and other issues about finding housing, but they listen to my problems and I believe they will act on them.


Advice to Potential Interns

My experience has been great, but different studios have different cultures, and a lot of it depends on the employee about whether they will enjoy working there. That said, I really really like it there, and I couldn't imagine having a better internship position.


Sample Interview Questions

A few simple C++ questions, then questions about personal projects, how I would technically expand them, what I learned, what I could have done better.


Advice to Management

No real comments.


Would You Recommend

Yes

nothing i could think on which i least liked. The only cons i can think is its relocation amount and not providing any housing facility.

This company has best working culture. I really had blast throughout the internship. Team is good. people are so cool with great minds. People knows their jobs so well yet they are cool in attitude, That was the best experience i can get.


Advice to Management

i only have complain with the compensation in terms of relocation and housing and daily commute transportation.
