I have been working at Electronic Arts as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

- Amazing people.
- Great building.
- Lots of free food and drinks.
- Free gym and sports groups.
- Exciting projects.

Cons

- Big company with the problems that size brings.
- Lots of overtime (mostly unpaid).
- Focus on contract positions.
- Contracts are rarely turned into permanent position and even then any decision is always left to the very end.

Advice to Management

Make sure you can speed up the decision making, try and get more manageable scopes so overtime is not so intense, and hopefully cut back on contracts and/or give better/quicker response to contractors.
