Fun place, too much micro-managing

I worked at Nintendo of America

Pros

Nintendo is generous with salary and benefits. Employee store discounts to consoles and hardware. Departments work as a team which makes long hours manageable. Loyal employees.

Cons

Parent headquarters mico-manages most marketing tactics. Spend most of your time explaining and justifying actions, instead of being innovative and agressive in the competitive video game industry. No work/life balance. Headquarters want to be cooperative but has difficulty trusting and allowing US subsidiary to be proactive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let the US subsidiary do their work and market in the style appropriate to our consumers. Move beyond finger pointing and finding scapegoats to making the best video games possible.

    I worked at Nintendo of America

    Pros

    Great company benefits. Good focus on staff development. Courses and/or classes were always encouraged and were paid for by the company if relevant to your position.

    Cons

    Processes put in place were done so with a large company (ie. Nintendo of America) in mind. For a company as small in size as the Canadian organization the processes can be too cumbersome, efficiencies could be made in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Great involvement /participation with the staff and staff activities.
    - Continue with the 360 review process, great opportunity to provide feedback on all levels of the organization
