    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - 7-10 Days off in December (Global Shutdown) - Location right next to Shopping Mall (Inorbit)

    Cons

    - Very poor work-life balance (You're expected to work 9am-11pm no matter what) - Hyderabad office is not software development house (not studio) so do not expect to learn. They do monitoring, testing and buy software services from 3rd party vendors. - Do not expect managers know all technical details (EA mostly hires managers from non-CS background). Thats why it is rather easy to get job in EA. - Salary growth... is like peanuts. - Layoffs through out the year with little to no job security. Google "EA Layoff" to confirm - Its very funny when employee join, EA starts telling they value employees but employees realizes very soon. - EA does not provide holiday on Diwali (I can validate for 2018)!! - Incompetent management who are more concerned about covering their own reputation with their superiors than actual leadership. - Funny but true: Many departments force employees to use free software. EA can not afford many industry standard softwares.
