Great people that I was able to work with, management drew the life out of it.

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

Pros

My immediate manager and the people I worked with were awesome, and put a lot of effort into finding the next project for the studio to work on.

Cons

At least for the studio I worked at, upper management seemed to make a lot of promises about changes and direction, but failed to either provide one, or support the studio when we tried to take the initiative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more up front about plans for teams, even if it's "We don't know what's going on for your future, but we need to solve this problem right now."

    I have been working at Electronic Arts as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Video game industry, game discounts, some cool perks like on site car washes and massage therapists (do cost money), good manager will protect you from office politics and let you enjoy the work.

    Cons

    Everyone out to save only themselves, no teamwork atmosphere, lacking the camaraderie I would expect in a large company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible and promote teamwork instead of competition
