    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Strong values, seem to reach throughout the company. Good communication by mgmt. Beautiful campuses with lots of food choices, additional benefits - Starbux, gym, etc. Fun company activities. Good community interaction / giving back.

    Cons

    It is a large, global, public company. The company can't be as flexible as a start up so know what you are getting into.

    Advice to Management

    Disjointed, frequent layoffs affected morale. Some good people were laid off because their departments had to make cuts, while weak performers with no cuts to their department were kept on. Look more into giving people the option to move to a new department / team and stay on versus being cut.

    Pros

    EA can attract some very good talent; opportunities to do new things and move up are real possibilities since it's a large company.

    Cons

    Shipping by "the end of the quarter" causes grief; we know we need to ship to earn a paycheck.
    But having any semblance of quality usually necessitates gobs of overtime; overtime can often be directly attributed to sub par management not having clear product vision.
    "It's not *me* causing this overtime grief, it's *him*."
