Pros

Strong values, seem to reach throughout the company. Good communication by mgmt. Beautiful campuses with lots of food choices, additional benefits - Starbux, gym, etc. Fun company activities. Good community interaction / giving back.

Cons

It is a large, global, public company. The company can't be as flexible as a start up so know what you are getting into.

Advice to Management

Disjointed, frequent layoffs affected morale. Some good people were laid off because their departments had to make cuts, while weak performers with no cuts to their department were kept on. Look more into giving people the option to move to a new department / team and stay on versus being cut.

    Pros

    You will have to be fast and think on your feet, but in the survivalist environment of pushing out projects as quickly as EA does, you learn a lot.

    Cons

    The organization is slow to respond and it is very profit driven, but teams/studios vary
