"EA is incredibly supportive and understanding of life beyond work, and recognizes that life does not always permit working from 9 to 5. I think this attitude is mutually beneficial to both the productivity of the company and the happiness of the employees—happy employees work harder. I think the trust and flexibility demonstrated by the management at EA is reciprocated by dedication, loyalty, and a desire to produce nothing but top quality work by those who work for EA. Though the job can be hectic, busy, and certainly more than 40 hours per week at times, vacation time is respected and encouraged from all levels within EA."
