    "Very professional company, with a bit too much politics going on. Slow to move to new markets."

    Pros

    Projects you work on are among the bigger ones in the industry.
    Engineering processes are pretty good (depending on the team you are on)
    Benefits and campus

    Cons

    Politics
    Career path, when you reach senior level, gets very limited.
    The only option tends to work on massive projects. Very few opportunities to work on small projects that try to innovate quickly. That might change with the push to go to mobile.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teams. Most top level managers (VP, GM's) are always behind the trends in the industry. One the other hand on the game teams, people tend to know what concepts are working out there. Get their feedback and ideas!

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with many amazing, smart and focused people who were all on the same page about getting the job done. Amenities were great, and I was provided enough autonomy to focus my efforts where I felt they were needed.

    Cons

    EA is going through changes and the growing pains were evident. Additionally, the multiple levels of management and overall segregation of departments and teams made some work difficult to accomplish.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure you've got the right people in the right places and things will go fine. Don't focus on titles or you'll fall back into the crazy amount of management-levels. And employ more RFTs and less contractors (on the non-development side).
