I worked at Electronic Arts as an intern

Pros

Learn a lot on the job
Flexible working hours
Great compensation + benefits, even for interns

Cons

Studios are typically very large, not necessarily a con to some though
Don't have a lot to list here to be honest. It's a great place to work

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    * Money
    * You're working on games
    * You get to work with lots of talented people

    Cons

    * You're always working
    * Projects are always on fire - they can't help cramming in more features, even when they've run out of time.
    * Lots of short term thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live your values, or stop pretending that they mean something to you.

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

    Pros

    * The benefits are great
    * People are smart and nice
    * Great perks. Each studio has their own unique offering. If you work at EARS, it has the biggest perks.
    * Above average pay

    Cons

    * Crunch can be pretty brutal
    * Upper management can be a bit intrusive and sometimes can cause chaos by feature creeping near alpha.
    * In certain studios, promotions are hard to come by.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
