    Former Employee - Game Advisor in Austin, TX

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Fun environment with a lot of opportunities

    Cons

    The place can be cliquey, and employees who don't perform as well as others can still end up with promotions they don't even qualify for as long as they're socializing with the right managers

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    You know what you're working on, and it's usually a big-name title so you know people will know the game you've put your work into.

    Cons

    You are insignificant, and your voice will never ever be heard. The company operates the way it does, and you just play your role.

    Former Employee - Designer 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Electronic Arts for more than 2 years

    Pros

    You will meet some brilliant, kind people. They will most likely go elsewhere once their contract is up. (Or before.)

    Cons

    Where to start? Management is corrupt and is rewarded for it. Will relocate you with sky high promises than lay you off 6 months later after you've ripped your family from their previous home and moved 3000 miles away. Sleazy managers will consistently be awarded. There is no limit to how low they will go. They claim to have work/life balance. What a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employers like humans and not like the bottom line.
