    I worked at NCsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Paragon had some of the best people I've worked with, a fantastic game in City of Heroes, paid well, and let us do the job we needed to do. Very collaborative place. It also had excellent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Too much interference from HQ in Korea, too much difficulty in getting a new project off the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have spun CoH off rather than closing it down.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at NCsoft.

    Interview Details

    Their recruiter found me via LinkedIn and gave me a call. After speaking for a short period of time I stated I was interested and I believe we set up a time for an in-person team interview and I came in for about a 3hr long interview (i.e. typical portfolio review and hours of talking to the team) and afterwords I left. On my way out of the building I got a call with an offer and accepted. Pretty simple.

    Negotiation Details
    I told them what I wanted and they said, "okay".

NCsoft is hardcore for fans of massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG).

NCsoft also produces casual online games such as shooter Point Blank and strategy game Murim Jekook. The company has... More
