    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They know how to ship high quality games. The company is entirely focused on shipping highly polished games on time and mostly on budget. They have a huge war chest so if they are interested in a project they will fund it.

    Cons

    Not great place for innovation. Pick other companies if you want to work on anything that looks like an indy game. The company is profit driven and they will cancel projects if they believe they are going to take a soaking on it.

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

    Pros

    good canteen food, free coffee / tea, free ice cream
    work only 4 days a week - 3 days off
    good salary
    games room

    Cons

    Decisions on management level are not considering the consequences for the agents and resulting in low morale. 6 months ago you could have been above target and without changing anything in your work / style, you are now rated below target.
    Shifts are too long (11h) and schedule could be better, sometimes you just work, sleep, work, sleep etc.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, especially phone agents
    Listen to your agents and do not punish them with bureaucracy.
