Riccitiello has a 63 percent approval rating from employees, based on Electronic Arts reviews submitted to CareerBliss in 2012.
From Riccitiello’s resignation letter:
My decision to leave EA is really all about my accountability for the shortcomings in our financial results this year. It currently looks like we will come in at the low end of, or slightly below, the financial guidance we issued to the Street, and we have fallen short of the internal operating plan we set one year ago. And for that, I am 100 percent accountable.
