So, in other words, all large gaming companies are horrible places to work.
It's certainly looking that way. Although EA seems to get pretty good marks from its employees from a harassment/ abuse perspective, so that might be the exception. Interestingly, EA seems clear-eyed about the issue you articulate:EA exec says toxic environments are inevitable inside large publishers ‘but you have to take action’
EA has it's own issues of course. An interview with a former EA dev I heard said he left because the focus had gone from "How do we make the best game" to "How do we best monetize the game?" He said the vast majority of his planning meetings were around monetization. And that has born itself out in their game releases and the resulting player backlash.
