      Pros

      * flexible remoting options * work life balance (a lot better than before) * company culture (at least on my Team it was friendly)

      Cons

      * career progression is bad, promotion are not based on merit but how hard your manager fights for it * Top heavy teams. Some teams will have 4 seniors on a team of 6 to 10, no clear sense of direction/ or who is in charge. Promotions also don't happen on top heavy teams due to team balance.

      There are no cons here (I just wanted to type nothing or "none", but there's a minimum 5 character limit.)

      Current Employee

      Global company in dynamic, exciting industry that manages to maintain its humanity

      May 29, 2021 - Senior Manager, Marketing Analytics in Vancouver, BC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Progressive, inclusive culture, dynamic industry with super-passionate customers and products that have real impact on their lives. Smart colleagues motivated by team success in collaborative environment with reasonable sense of work/life balance (at least on the marketing/communications side).

      Cons

      Can be bureaucratic, fragmented and siloed org. Ambiguity around roles and responsibilities, with tendency to restructure frequently, creating even more confusion. These cons can vary widely, depending on which part of the organization you are in, and in any case are far outweighed by pros.

    5. 5.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Takes care of their employees

      Apr 28, 2021 - Associate Data Analyst 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I felt like I wasn’t just a number at EA, but an actual person who was looked after. Working there during the pandemic, my managers did so many creative and kind things to make us all feel a bit better. They were also very understanding about my mental health during the pandemic and gave all employees unlimited sick days. Amazing benefits

      Cons

      Work can be dull and repetitive sometimes. Don’t always agree with corporates practices around loot boxes

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I've been working at this company for 10 years and what I appreciated the most is the ongoing improvement and effort made by the company to be inclusive and reach a better work/life balance.

      Cons

      By nature of the projects, and despite the company efforts, there is a lot of pressure to meet deadlines that are sometimes unrealistic. It is uneasy about networking between different organization divisions unless you are in a big location.
