  4. "Great senior leadership, Sub par mid level leadership"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Electronic Arts

    Pros

    Senior leaderships have good intentions. Somewhat flexible to chose what available project you want to work within the studio. Great facilities and benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of mid level veteran position who are obsolete and not willing to adapt to change. Unfortunately senior leaderships tend to listen toward these old timers. Compensation is poor compared with other studios. Long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involve in the field on day to day basis.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great facilities, the gym is useful.

    Cons

    Incompetent management who are more concerned about covering their own reputation with their superiors than actual leadership. This workplace attracts people because of their name recognition but this just lets management get away with more employee abuses than most software companies in Vancouver. You will be under-compensated working here, this is just the fact of the matter.
