    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - EA has excellent benefit packages and the salaries can be competitive, depending on the studio location.
    - Good educational opportunities
    - They have a huge library of IPs and technology

    Cons

    - They have a habit of absorbing smaller studios, which have a history of crumbling after a couple of years.
    - They need to better monitor management of individual studios.
    - They are not innovating as much as they used to.

    Advice to Management

    You should survey the employees at various studios on a more frequent basis. You will likely find early signs of a studio veering off track long before it actually does.
