      EA

      Pros

      EA look after their people very well. Great benefits and access to resources for health/mental health. You can work on some big IPs. Great people to work with, really talented and friendly lot. Good social scene.

      Cons

      As a company EA makes some bizarre decisions. EA could invest in its tools more, they are often behind competitors. EA manta is player first, but this isn't explained and their game development often seems to put gameplay last, or as an afterthought. This seems more like player last, shareholders first. Management can feel a bit detached from the game development sometimes.

      Great company, but poor managers in some departments

      Pros

      Great benefits for full time staff, friendly workspace, nice offices, sociable.

      Cons

      Staff kept on as contractors for 1 year+, 7 years in one case (!) Managers have no real accountability, and no signs that the company is willing to retrain poor managers. Difficult to move laterally within the company depending on which department you work in.
