I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Fun company, lots of travel, great campus.

Very policitical and lots of backstabbing. It's about who you know and who you're friends with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Great team and manager. Fun projects and very diverse technologies you are exposed to. Lots of potential for building out a state of the network for the best games in the world. Pay is decent if you're in Austin.

    Cons

    No where to go from here. Not not many opportunities for promotion. Hiring is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Immediate and local management are great. The executive team in California needs improvement. Recent changes though keeps us hopeful
