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

    Pros

    there are many smart people and massive resources internal and external to reach your potential and make your mark. Every studio has standard tech-company perks, coffee shops, cereal, ball pit, parties, concierge (car wash, haircut, dry cleaning, etc)

    Cons

    Sadly, with size comes bureaucracy, you need to be comfortable with making change in your area not the entire company. While you generally have the empowerment to change you're work, the rest of the company won't follow you and for some folks that can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to keep up the push for change, the industry is shifting and we may not be reacting fact enough, R&D groups and a few "moon shots" wouldn't hurt.

    A lot of ups and downs. It's great when the business is good. It's a cutthroat culture during the lean times.

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities. Can learn many aspects of the business.

    Cons

    Get ready for a lot of meetings and a lot of Powerpoints. Dealing with the bureaucracy can be brutal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline game making processes and stop re-inventing the wheel every year. Stop with the executive reviews that take weeks to prepare for. You're paying people to make PPTs when they should be making the game. Get better at new IP. Even movie studios can't do nothing but sequels.
