I have been working at NCsoft full-time (less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
We make and publish great games. Some old, some new. Many of these games, such as WildStar, are getting better every month.
There are great people -- people who work hard, support each other, and care deeply about the future of this place.
There is an exciting vision here -- but, the organization is still very much in a building phase. This means that people that join have an enormous opportunity to come in and help shape how things work. For people who are willing and able to roll up their sleeves, collaborate across teams, and put their mark on something -- I can't think of a better opportunity.
Reading over these reviews, it is evident that six to 12 months ago there was a lot of uncertainty and dissatisfaction. Some of that is almost certainly still here. While a lot of things have changed over the last few months, the company is still absolutely in the process of building. If you are looking for a place where all processes are established and all roles are clearly defined, this is not that place.
There is still a huge amount of work that needs to be done for NCSOFT to reach its potential. There is progress every day, but it can be slow ... sometimes way too slow. That can be incredibly frustrating. Also, NCSOFT doesn't really have a strong public identity or reputation in the West.
Advice to Management
Invest more time and resources on building teams across departments, across studios and across regions. Also, find ways to recognize employees who demonstrate their passion and go above and beyond (there are a lot of them).

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at NCsoft (Orange, CA) in March 2015.
Interview process consisted of an initial 20 minute call with the HR Recruiter. A few days later a phone interview was setup with the Sr. Producer. This second phone interview lasted about 30 minutes and consisted of the standard questions you'd expect from an interview.
Do you play NCSoft titles? Do you play competitive titles of ours?
What is your Producer Methodology?
Why do you want to work at NCSoft?
What is a standard day in the life of you at your current position?
Both interviewers did a great job explaining what NCSoft is about, what the direction of the company currently is and the expectations and responsibilities of the Producer at this company.
I found both interviewers very easy to talk to and forthcoming with answers to the various questions I had. Unfortunately, the stage 2 phone interview was the last for me, more than likely due to my inexperience working on MMOs and lack of knowledge of NCSoft products. However, I found the experience to be a solid, professional one. The fact that they took a second to provide me a clear resolution, that I was not moving on to the next round of interviews, is much appreciated.
