- (Former Employee)
Brighton, England (UK)

ProsNice atmosphere, friendly people, great benefits and generous salaries. The company invests in people and gives generous trainings, etc.

ConsLack of pespective and overall lack of ambition and strategy from the company's upper management.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more between different offices, become a truly global company. Be more rational in fixing priorities. Hire great managers from outside of the game industry.

    Paragon Studios was fantastic

    Lead Game Designer (Former Employee)

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