Great company, Great Benefits, could be better when it comes to compensation

ProsGreat Health Benefits (full vision, medical, and dental), Good Stock Purchase plan, Good 401k, Good work environment, Emphasis put on learning how to do your job better, EA University provides a great opportunities to improve your skills, Opportunities given to move around the company, nice facility, flexible work hours, respect of your personal time, plenty of time off

ConsCompensation lower in comparison to other bay area companies (at least in the customer service department), Politics are sometimes involved when positions are chosen, it is a large corporation so it can be easy to get lost, sometimes changes in policy take longer to make because it is such a large company

Advice to Senior ManagementMake compensation more competitive with other Bay Area companies, try to pick employees based on the best qualifications rather than for political reasons

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Lack of performance is tolerated, and it is near-impossible to fire people. Lots… Advice to Senior Management: Lay-off the bottom 30%. They are deadweight. Look to promote those who are being rated SAT consistently by their peers. Consolidate the producer and DD… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Steer clear of EA, despite the numerous company benefits.

Pros: You get EA Game Credits on a yearly basis, which is pretty rocking, and after you spend your credits you can buy games that EA… Cons: Well, I found working for Electronic Arts to be very political. If you rubbed the wrong way with someone, you basically would eat lunch alone,… Advice to Senior Management: Sure. Just be more open with your employees. If you perceive there's a problem with someone, come… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
