What were your expectations of working at a large company before coming to EA?
When I was younger, I assumed large company culture was very strict; strict hours, strict work environment, etc. I expected larger companies to make you wear suits. I thought interns weren't allowed to speak casually. But when I came to EA, I realized the culture didn't have to be that way. I love wearing shorts to work. I am able to talk to my manager easily; not as his employee, but as somebody who truly knows me.
I never thought I'd be able to combine my love for coding with my love for video games. When I realized I could work for a company like EA as a Programmer, I was ecstatic. I play video games. My favorites are DOTA and FIFA. My first experience with FIFA was FIFA 98 and I've been playing ever since.
