    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing experience, especially at a junior-mid level. Access to massive audiences and large scale marquee campaigns. Great perks.

    Cons

    Compensation is low initially. Huge workload as years go by, starts edging into 70 hour weeks at times. Take work home with you always, constant emails into the evening. Career progression is very random, hope you get a good manager who cares. Highly political.

    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time

    Pros

    As the review title says.

    Cons

    Some departments have too heavy on processes and hence introduce more people to manage the processes, which ends up with too much communication and alignment before any work gets done. I guess this is to be expected when teams grow big-ger.
