I worked at Nintendo of America full-time (more than an 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.

    I have been working at Nintendo of America full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, bonus is typically paid, sick leave is awesome.

    Cons

    Politics, drama, don't expect to be able to do your job. If you make waves, you will be pushed out. Zero job satisfaction. If you are not a sheep, and do as you're told, you're done.
