    I worked at Electronic Arts as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great Facility - Library to borrow games/movies/books for reference or personal, Company Store for cheap games, Cafeteria that has decent food, arcade, foosball and pool tables, TVs above the urinals.
    - High budget projects - It's an awesome experience to be part of AAA development.
    - Great stepping stone for someone entering the Game Industry

    Cons

    - Mad OT
    - Company politics, more than the norm
    - Ratio for project manager to worker bee is almost laughable.
    - Easy for people to not pull their weight, since teams are larger

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of talent and make sure they're happy and not burnt out.
