    Pros

    International working environment, intelligent people, large exposure to top people in the industry, huge financing capital through IPO to sustain aggressive M&A

    Cons

    low salary, few employee perks, rigid organization, working hours are not flexible

    Advice to Management

    Salary-level is not competitive compared to peers, vision can be expanded a bit more outside of core games industry

    Pros

    Everybody is young. Being young is a good thing!

    Cons

    Because people are young, when company's situation started getting worse financially, it becomes difficult for young team to come up with solution to fix it.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for growth. Good people, a good plan, but too many hurdles to reach your goals.

    Cons

    Interference from less important departments. Lack of faith in good employees from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Western development and ideas, not so much on the old standards. There's a whole world out there, and Nexon is starting to feel like it might never truly grow. Spend some cash, but on worthwhile ventures.


  9. Trying to force korean standards on the western market
