Cons

Unbelievable workload
Understaffed

Anti-minority attitudes expressed by some bosses
The AC is broken

No foosball table
DFO is Dead

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize that we as employees are human beings, not machines, and the ridiculous amount of stress being placed on a small number of us is NOT good policy. On top of this, direct more staff towards your flagging releases, hire more staff in general, release more content, provide a better level of customer communication and answer my flipping ticket please.

    I have been working at NEXON part-time for less than a 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.
