    I worked at Nintendo of America full-time (more than 3 years)


    Pay was good, and work/life balance was excellent. People overall are very nice. And it's a fun, safe environment. You're dealing with Mario! The most innocuous character in video games.


    No room for growth. None. Unless someone quits, which is rare.
    Loyalty is valued 100 times more than competency (which makes sense since it's a Japanese company), but you end up having higher management that have already hit their stride a long time ago and unwilling to adapt to modern gaming process and competition.
