Pros

Projects are large in scope, big team affairs that are compete with Activision and Ubisoft. Making games is fun, and some of the best people work at EA.

Cons

The senior management can make drastic decisions that may include cutting your project. Quality can be sacrificed to meet deadlines or to make annual products.

    Pros

    You're working at EA. That in and of itself is pretty cool. You have the chance of being on a good game.

    Cons

    There is little to no opportunity to grow. QA is always looked at first when cuts are being made. Management feels like their own little click with their own inside jokes about the rest of us. There is little meaningful interaction with management. Management assures us that compensation is competitive with other companies, but it obviously isn't when people that have been here for years as regular full time employees are making as much as or less than contract employees.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to understand that their employees aren't stupid. Many of our peers have moved on to other companies, whether it be from cutbacks or on their own due to the unfairness of the company. We know for a fact our compensation isn't competitive.
