Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA

I worked at NEXON full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Basketball court
Great, talented people, personal friendships and networking opportunities
Safe neighborhood

Cons

Poor wages (do your homework when applying, there ARE companies that will pay you fair market value)
Fail executive staff (aimless vision, no transparency, don't know what to do with the talent)
Failing company (all the top talent has already escaped this sinking ship, while the remaining talent are avidly looking for new opportunities elsewhere).
I've got a hunch the Nexon America office will be closed by Big Daddy Korea/Japan so they can focus on the asian market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are great people here. Your customers are loyal and wonderful as well. But when your idea of driving revenue is to post big banners and popups for sales rather than crafting an excellent user experience, and the competition catches up with the Free 2 Play model, you're destined to fail once you've lost sight of the people.

    Nexon is one of the worst gaming companies to work for.

    Current Employee - Vindictus Game Engineer in El Segundo, CA

    I have been working at NEXON part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -As many breaks as our current team manager allows which was quite often
    - Basketball court and food lounge
    - Employees great to work with, not so the higher ups.

    Cons

    -I recently quit the Vindictus NA team because of how corporate treats us and making us unable to speak to players about the issues at hand that make this company so unprofessional.
    -Under alot of pressure to get assignments done at an unreasonable rate to the point where I have to go home and finish it and add it to a USB to bring back to work.
    -Have to relay all information to Nexon Korea before Nexon NA can do anything regarding issues to the game, they gave us the patches for everything and i mean everything......
    -Seoul, IE Nexon Korea will be doing an overhaul and probably firing a lot of staff in 2013 I assume.
    -Overall Nexon is a company where you can get your foot in the door for some experience then quit as soon as you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to change there outlook. Making games into where its basicly give us money or you will have a bad experience. The higher ups have no idea about the gaming industry, "more profit is more important than player experience" is corporate in a nutshell.
