Good company to work for

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

- Fun working environment, especially working in game studios

Cons- Politics across teams, especially non-game positions like marketing/HR
- Not much breakthrough in the past years
- No free food

Advice to Senior ManagementTake more time thinking about EA's future, as game industry is not in a good state. EA needs breakthroughs as badly as making money

    Executive Producer (Former Employee) Redwood City, CA

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: EA is a great brand and company possesses great IP for an entertainment company.

The EA senior mgmt only cares about what wall street thinks of its earning and cost structure… Advice to Senior Management: Empower the mid level managers and have an EVA mgmt process instead of an Hollywood Studio bureaucracy where you have multiple VP fighting for power… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
