    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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).
