Good working environment with great benefits and employee perks

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCompensation is commensurate with job expectations. Creativity and thinking outside the norm are encouraged. Strong benefits package and the Redwood Shores campus is very nice with onsite cafe and gym.

ConsGamer culture can get a little annoying if you aren't a hard core gamer yourself. There have been a number of reductions in force followed by employee growth followed by more cuts. It can get tiresome looking over your shoulder all the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop making expensive acquisitions and investing in trends that fizzle out, (Nintendo Wii, Facebook games) and stick to what the company does well and has a long term future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
