I liked some of the early EA games (or rather the guys who did developing), a company is an ever changing thing made up of people who come and go so saying you like or dislike EA without giving a time period is meaningless.

I'd never buy an EA game.

EA is going on Microsoft's steps. Trying to buy everyone. It wouldn't be a surprise if they would buy Konami and release the next Pro Evolution as FIFA ...3004
a real evolution, 1000 years ahead

It's like this in Sweden too... I know of several corporations that have the practice of not paying for overtime, including Sony Ericsson. (To be fair, the salary isn't bad though. But it would be better if they paid per hour, this way they can in principle make the employee work around the clock, they should learn that time is money instead.)

I'd never take a job at a large game company, being just another cog in the wheel of a 15-crew assembly line. Pun pun.

It's funny that even workers in such a competition-laden industry as the car industry have better unions than the software business. Auto workers have negotiated their way to better working conditions. I really believe this is the answer, to unite and form a software union so the employers can't get away with these (strongest word in the encyclopedia) business practices.

Unions destroyed the factories here in the US, if employers can't screw their employees then they will move the factory to places they can.
