A great opportunity at a great time in the companies history

Producer (Former Employee)
San Mateo, CA

I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: The second largest publisher and creator of interactive entertainment products offers a great amount of resources to projects… Cons: To big for their own good. Projects suffer from far to many layers of management and an over emphasis… Advice to Senior Management: Get back to your start up, scrappy roots! Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Despite being told not to join the ranks at Tiburon by many friends and former colleagues, I did anyway -- big mistake.

Development Director (Former Employee)
Orlando, FL

I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than a year


Pros: The major pro to joining EA is getting to work on AAA gaming titles at almost any studio. They own some of the biggest… Cons: Horrible work-life balance on any game team. Be prepared, especially on Madden, to be under a constant microscope where management, especially marketing, will continually… Advice to Senior Management: Building a game is simply like building any complex piece of software. EA Tiburon has "implemented" Agile/SCRUM, yet does't really adhere to the rules… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
