    Former Employee - Sound Software Engineer in Montreal, QC (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Nice people to meet.
    Was good few years
    Overtime added up to your vacations
    Good workspace and equipment

    Cons

    When times go bad it is a bad time to be
    Lots of career politics
    Overtimes
    Lack of long term goals. Invest in a foundation more now, so it will pay longer term. Rather than quickly patch up this Frankenstein for a "his Majesty" today and it goes down the drain tomorrow at best
    Stupid "My game plan" self review each year.
    Left hand does not know what right hand does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "My game plan" - it is useless. It might be used to show the employee it's place to be and be humble. However, this mist is quickly blown away if employee will attach what competitors are offering. Market dictates a price for the head, not a MPG

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
