Hey I sort of have the same question. I have been working with recruiters and I never heard any feed back from EA. but I know friends of mine that have had jobs at EA and believe I have better programming skills. Also rumor is that EA has a high turn over rate.
I'm a C++ / flash guru and I know I could be very useful to this company, especially having a 3d modeling back ground. If a recruiter cant get me in the door I don't see how I could. Yet I try..
So I second it Any advice for someone trying to get in?
