    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are good, and I got more vacation time and paid holidays than most other people I know. The culture was fun, and I enjoyed the game I was working on.

    Cons

    The salary is lower than what you would get at most other places with the same experience and responsibility. The culture and bonuses will vary based on the game team you are associated with. Some teams will have to deal with much more stress than others.

    Also, even though the benefits are very good, they are significantly scaled down from what they were a few years ago. They no longer offer sabbatical, and some of the smaller benefits were eliminated entirely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked with a variety of managers while there and some were better than others. The best managers I had were the ones that would focus on the people they were managing and doing everything possible to allow them to do their job.
