EA is the Worst Company in America, Now What?
And EA's response:I believe EA is a destructive force in the industry as their goal isn’t to make gaming more accessible and respected as a medium.

These articles don't even mention the EA Spouse protest campaign from a few years ago when the husbands and wives of EA employees banded together to confront EA over brutal work schedules.
