Pros

-great coffee machine
-can be late often or not come in at all. They don't seem to have a policy for that, even if you are management.

Cons

-Two year temporary positions for most, with very expensive benefits and only if you can afford and want them.
-No holiday pay, and forced to be off if you are temp.
-Bad company structure; they do not know what direction they want to lead the company to.
-The wrong people in the wrong positions, employees that are die hard being overworked to no end.
-Old vet employees that are reluctant to change.
-Company does not invest in resources for departments that need it.
-Does not care about their player base.
-They just want to know “How much more money they can make”, without a care in trying to fix their games and make them better for those that have spent the money already.
-Everyone looks unhappy, and people quit weekly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what direction you want to take, remind your management or re-train on how to manage and be professional.
Pick up your company morale; a couple but almost no one seems happy to be there you wouldn’t think you work for a gaming company.
Invest in your customer service and those that help improve your online game stability.

    Pros

    *Close to the beach
    *Because so many people quit and are laid off, plenty of opportunity to learn
    *A basketball court at the office
    *Fun activities

    Cons

    *Games are failing, with office planning to close at the end of the year, friends at Seoul setting up teams to take over for staffs in LA
    *Very inexperienced top leadership
    *Inexperienced leadership selected because company plans to close the LA offices, except for small opps team
    *Staffs not treated well, those of us sponsored by Nexon are treated like servant and have to work extra hour
    *Best talent has abandoned the company for better jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Stop closing the office, find new games that win
    *Find more experienced leadership
    *Treat those sponsored with pleasantness

    I worked at NEXON full-time

    Pros

    Employees are great to work with...smart, pleasant, and even tempered
    Actually practices ideals such as continuous improvement and collaboration
    Great perks such as free lunch, team building, and parties

    Cons

    Very limited career growth
    No concept of work/life balance
    Extremely hierarchical
    Loyalty valued more than performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept and address cultural challenges at the workplace. Be willing to fire under-performers no matter how long they have been with the company.
