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

Pros

- Big name which is great for your career
- Good compensation and benefits compared to most of other companies
- Great learning opportunities in my team
- Fun working environment, especially working in game studios

Cons

- Politics across teams, especially non-game positions like marketing/HR
- Not much breakthrough in the past years
- No free food

Advice to Management

Take more time thinking about EA's future, as game industry is not in a good state. EA needs breakthroughs as badly as making money

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits; fun work atmosphere; if you are good at schmoozing, you can go far

    Cons

    It really depends on the team, but worst case is you can get locked into doing the same thing, not growing your skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Not all managers are created equal! For many, a good manager makes a big difference in how well the employee performs and grows. More attention should be paid to those in managerial positions to make sure they are worthy of the title!

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

    Pros

    Set schedule. Great work environment. Awesome co-workers. Interesting work. I get to play around with the latest technology and video games before they come out.

    Cons

    Contract employees are forced to go on furlough every 12 or 18 months (part/full time)
    Minimum wage for most positions.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure the furlough policy allowing us to retain skilled employees who desire to build the company they love.
