Electronic Arts Employee Review
Excellent place, if you're a corporate person
The entry jobs are not very demanding when it comes to knowledge, which can be frustrating and boring at times, but you have to be a disciplined "corporate" type to thrive here. You have to put up with very repetitive work. If you're not good at networking, you will stay in your (entry) position for a very long time, as your abilities beyond what is necessary for everyday work are completely irrelevant. Also there are so-called "blackouts" for vacation and the company has little regard to whether you have a family or not, so it's best suited for singles without attachments. I wouldn't say it's a bad company, because I had a nice time there, but you have to be a certain type of person to be happy with the jobs they offer.

Easy going work, free ice cream, free games
As in every corporation, you're just a number and can be replaced
Amazing workplace culture. Inclusive, collaborative and supportive. If you have your priorities right you can make a great career there. Unfortunately, sometimes the place was very much underappreciated by the employees, usually the ones who never worked in another place before.
If you are the type to tell tales, run to management, suck up and be a “yes” person, then you’re likely what they are looking for if you’re opinion isn’t the one they gave you, then you’re not in the yes club and you’re going nowhere
Salary and benefits are decent, especially if you’re a language adviser. If your local, forget it
No concept of work/life balance. Work ethic and experience is irrelevant
