    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time

    Pros

    -Top level leadership listens to employees and reacts quickly for the most part. For example we have generous regular quarterly payments to help with WFH during the pandemic and an extra 2 weeks of paid time off to take care of family. -Compensation package is fair. -Working with people who are passionate about the products they work on. -Work is interesting if you like videogames.

    Cons

    -Teammates often backstab each other to get ahead. Very competitive on some teams. -A lot of middle management is not trained for management roles and lacks basic leadership skills. -Very political environment, constant office gossip. -Many pretentious people around -Generally white washed culture, not a lot of diversity although leadership is "working on it". -Work life balance is brutal for some teams.

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    EA has a leadership team that has invested heavily in its employees and is far from the days where they were seen as a sweatshop. They heavily invest and care about their employees and provide competitive compensation and provide significant opportunities of growth.

    Cons

    The large company can be daunting for some, teams being spread across geographies can require a bit more work to collaborate but it is a small con for being at a large multinationa.

    Pros

    The facility is great and the work-life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Sometimes things can be messy as it's developing games can be hard. So sometimes, you'll have to hack some things together to make it work. Then a gamble on whether that technical debt will be addressed.
