    Advice to Management

    Despite the recent change of CEO, the former direction was strong and allowed for EA to capitalize on the differences between EA and other key competitors. Keep up the good work focusing on platform, happy developers, and great games.

  2. Aggressive environment but opportunities are plentiful if you make the most of them!
