    I have been working at Electronic Arts full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great work-life balance. - Pretty much flat hierarchy. All the leads are vocal and always sharing ideas with everyone. Very open culture about almost everything professional. - Everyone is heard if they have their opinions about the workflow or game ideas or anything that can have positive impact on the game or the studio - Place is filled with opportunities, but you have to look and work for it - If you're giving your best, you'll be noticed and recognized by everyone - Compensation is higher than almost all other gaming studios in India.

    Cons

    - Not all titles are good for learning, if you end up being on the wrong team your growth will be hampered! - Gaming culture is still evolving. Need more enthusiastic people across the studio to improve learning opportunities - Mainly focused on live services. Hence it's not always fun to work since there are hardly new projects at hand. - Since this is EA, the hiring standards are pretty high (which is good) but at such standards a lot of people prefer nongaming Tier-1 companies as they pay a lot more, which leads to higher attrition.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Electronic Arts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    8-10 days shut down period in December.

    Cons

    - No work life balance, you are expected to work from 9AM - 11PM. Even on weekends your manager calls you and expects to fix issues. Expects to finish sprint tasks over the weekend. Wrong estimations. - Your health is going to get bad everyday. - Pay is less, not even comparable to service based companies. - Internal culture is just as a service based organization, you are assigned to projects as per manager's choice. Can swap you into any project any time. - You are expected to work on all platforms, code in all languages and do everything. - You are exploited and your ideas are too in the name of hackathons, awards etc. - Lot of political drama goes around between US and Hyderabad teams. - Expected to join evening calls between 7pm-9pm everyday which last for 1hr to couple of hrs sometimes. - No growth aspects, you are expected to work like an architect at a developer position and architects work like people managers. - Don't fall into the trap where managers persuade you with awards or stocks that can give you monetary benefits. Conditions Apply. - You will see contractors everywhere and you will also be billed into projects like one of them, inspite of being a full-time. - No real product development happens, it's all fire fighting everywhere and unrealistic deadlines. - The highest attrition rate i have ever seen in a product development organization till date. Many have left within the 6 months probation period. Some have absconded without notice. - There are no good technical leaders in the middle management, managers do micro-management, lot of emotional stress.
