    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with many amazing, smart and focused people who were all on the same page about getting the job done. Amenities were great, and I was provided enough autonomy to focus my efforts where I felt they were needed.

    Cons

    EA is going through changes and the growing pains were evident. Additionally, the multiple levels of management and overall segregation of departments and teams made some work difficult to accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure you've got the right people in the right places and things will go fine. Don't focus on titles or you'll fall back into the crazy amount of management-levels. And employ more RFTs and less contractors (on the non-development side).

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun company, lots of travel, great campus.

    Cons

    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.
