I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Fun company, lots of travel, great campus.

Advice to Management

More focus on getting work done and less on keeping the harmony.

    Pros

    Great Staff! Co-workers are hard working, fun loving and spirited individuals.

    Cons

    Senior management in short sighted personally motivated and relatively inept. Employee evaluation process is the most dysfunctional event I've ever seen next to Gulf War. Culture and values have decreased in significance and attention since the 2002. Stock value 25% of it's former self as is the senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Ask Vivian McDonald to leave the company. Yesterday!

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work life balance at our studio is very nice. I very rarely have to work overtime or long hrs. The day schedule is very flexible and accommodating.

    Cons

    Projects ambitions are always focused on the lowest hanging fruit. Despite our company value of 'being bold,' we are never. Innovative, fresh, visionary, are all adjectives that don't apply here.

    Advice to Management

    You've done a great job of perpetuating a safe complacent harbor. Unfortunately it's not enough. All the best talent is continually migrating out into more ambitiously creative studios.
