Pros

Some great people
Nice environments
Great IP and overall a good company to work for

Cons

Too many layers of management
Stuck in the 'old ways' and whilst trying to bring on digital and F2P do not 'get it' and the culture of the company is still firmly console / boxes

Advice to Management

Slim down the many management layers
Bring in people with the knowledge and let them loose ;)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People at management really have no clues about things they are running. It is all about "poliware" (politics based software). So you will really shine here if you are good at making friends and play politics.

    Cons

    People at management really have no clues about things they are running. It is all about "poliware" (politics based software). You will mostly be evaluated by the relationship with your manager and the overtime you took, not necessary your knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    See pros/cons - I don't think they will get it.
