    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for growth. Good people, a good plan, but too many hurdles to reach your goals.

    Cons

    Interference from less important departments. Lack of faith in good employees from upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Western development and ideas, not so much on the old standards. There's a whole world out there, and Nexon is starting to feel like it might never truly grow. Spend some cash, but on worthwhile ventures.
