A nice starting point, but not meant for the long term

This is more specific to the contract work that is performed for EA Games, so your experience may vary based on other companies that work with this company.
As long as you do your job efficiently, you'll have no real problems here. I won't lie, it is tedious and will get mentally draining after a while, but the decent work schedule makes up for that. I'm on the day shift from 7-4, and unless the workload demands extra time, all weekends are free, as are holidays.
The biggest downside is that this is a contract job, and that after a year, your employment ends. After three months, you can re-apply, but this required termination can make things difficult for those watching their funds. There are opportunities to move up within the company where you can avoid these furloughs, but for entry-level employees, this can be an issue.
