No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Big company, some job security, some great IP, opportunity to travel, smart people, forward thinking. The company has a lot of great projects but is at risk of running out from not giving them room to grow

Cons

Slow to manoeuvre, bad PR at times. Company isn't in a great PR position at the moment which affects the morale of the staff.

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time

    Pros

    Some people are amazing, you get the opportunity to work with amazing teams Depending on the role/team, there are interesting learning opportunities Good benefits if you are a permanent employee Great to have in the CV

    Cons

    It's all about politics: you can easily find yourself being managed by somebody inadequate that talked his way to the role It feels more like a factory than a game company environment, no culture or creativity Untrustworthy and sometimes clueless upper management

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if management focused more on the job and less on their personal agendas.

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

    Pros

    Extremely passionate developers of sports games, with clear ideas on how to build the best possible tech for these. Excellent facilities, gym, soccer pitch, beach volleyball court and Friday afternoon BBQ on the roof at EAC are great for team building and general relaxation.

    Cons

    Management had little clue as to how technology dependent games are, and how investing in technology pays for itself on cyclic-games like sports titles.

    Advice to Management

    Start walking the walking of YOUR cultural values.
