Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

Pros+ Still have a lot of experienced, knowledgeable people that will give you the time of day
+ Onsite Cafes & Frequent Food Truck Visits
+ Gym, Daycare, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementStill need to improve customer relationship. Effort is there, but all the good that happens behind the scenes is often washed away by a silly public facing gaffe.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The people are great, the politics are not

    Engineering Manager (Former Employee) Redwood Shores, CA

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: EA has a great number of hugely talented individuals, lots of cool projects to work on, lots of great tech to play… Cons: The atmosphere is highly profit driven, to the detriment of quality in many cases. Politics and jockeying for power or recognition is rampant. People can… Advice to Senior Management: EA would not be losing ground to other smaller companies in both reputation and market share if it could get closer to its roots, and… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
