I worked at Nintendo of America full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-11 month, 40 hour a week contract.
-Stable hours, 8-5 with one hour lunch.
-Discount on Nintendo products.
-Access to the company cafeteria, which is amazing.
-Your own desk that you can decorate if you choose.

Cons

-Very little chance for moving up in the company.
-Two month mandatory wait between contracts.
-Many young and immature people there who seem to think that they will get to make video games.
-Lower pay compared with other testing companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put more emphasis on the employees. Nintendo has lost some great people because other companies offered to treat them better. Please do not rely on massive amount of applicants to keep your company thriving. It takes good people, not just people.
