    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Nintendo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyone loves the product. There is true passion behind the company.

    Cons

    Career advancement is slow. Some processes are outdated and inefficient. People don't leave the company so new ways of thinking are rarely implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward talent. Get rid of dead weight on teams. Too many people get comfortable at Nintendo and stop trying.
