    Pros

    Working on video games is fun!

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance, compensation, and management.

    Advice to Management

    Even though many people want to work in games, investing in employees (rather than viewing them as disposable) would help the stock.

    Pros

    Huge company has many cultural "zones". I used to be in a high performing team full of motivated engineering colleagues win a high level of pride in what we did. I knew a lot of great developers and managers that loved their game or feature team at EA, and stayed forever. There are surely some good spots in the company, but beware its a mixed bag, YMMV

    Cons

    Upheaval in senior executives brought is a horrible phase in 2011-2012 that drove out literally half of my engineering org due to bozo leadership. I have read that a pair of top execs responsible for a lot of this disaster have moved on, so maybe that's a past issue now.

    Advice to Management

    Don't wield the big hammer of fear, respect your teams. Relax the ship date obsession, products should be great above shipping on time. Watch valve do this well.
