        Approves of CEO

        I worked at EA Sports full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Pay and benefits are above average. Kitchen on most floors. Lots of themed meeting rooms. All hands meetings help you understand company objectives.

        Cons

        Lack of respect and accountability among employees. Forced overtime nights and weekends. Leaders overreact, blame others for their mistakes, miscommunicate, and in general look out for themselves first. There has been a lot of failing up because friendship and tenure are more valued than capability.

        Advice to Management

        Learn how to care about people. Learn how to communicate effectively. Take accountability for your domain and your team.

            Pros

            Pay during disasters Guaranteed weekly hours Coffee for free Discounts on ea games Friendly co workers

            Cons

            Care less about thier employees than they do about thier customers Low pay Fired every 12 month when contracted through pro unlimited Poor business strategy which opporates under a fail until you marginally succeed method. Then run it into the ground Never listen to employees Never respect tenured QA employees

            Advice to Management

            Actually listen to your employees instead of firing them every 12 months. Sometimes you will findpaying employees more money for thier experience is a smart business strategy. Instead of the current hire someone new train them for three months and fire them in 9, dry rinse repeat.

            I worked at EA Sports

            Pros

            Its a clean environment and there is a lot of cool people who work there.

            Cons

            They don't value individuals or growth, they only value the bottom line which is why I am no longer there.

            Advice to Management

            Be transparent with your employees. Let them know what they are doing good and bad, and encourage upper management to not fire people so quickly.
