I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Shared expertise and decades of industry experience on every team.

Cons

The hazards of working at a huge publisher is that smaller ideas might get lost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd love to continue working for EA, but must telecommute. Open a satellite office in Portland, Oregon?

    Fast-paced and superdynamic environment, tight turnarounds -- but "work hard, play hard"

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of cool perqs for full-time employees like free onsite gym access, free digital and physical games, beautiful facilities, and all kinds of outreach and organizational opportunities. Work hours in my department are flexible and my peers are creative, intelligent, hardworking people. Fun and interesting to work in the video game industry.

    Cons

    Major deploys or product announcements mean long hours for weeks at a time (10-12+ hour days, sometimes weekends). Lack of organization/forward planning by development teams results in severe production crunch further down the line.

    I worked at Electronic Arts as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great gym, great commute and great people.

    Cons

    The new CTO and technical organization is not in touch with the requirements of the business and systems stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to align the goals of the business with the horrible mismanagement of the new CTO and his organization.
