    The Biggest game company in South Korea

    Senior Software Developer (Current Employee)
    Seongnam (South Korea)

    ProsFlexible organization. Nice coworkers. I think pay is good in Korea.

    ConsWhich is publisher than developer. So, shipping schedule is more important than game quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe need to develop a GAME not a cash generator.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Well

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsThe company is getting lots of money. Financially stable.

    ConsEven it has a lot of money, you can not expect any incentive. The company has a history of firing many employees even it had grown up more than 30 percentage comparing to the previous year.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    NEXON is an online game company with liberal culture but uncertain future.

    Programmer (Current Employee)
    Seoul (South Korea)

    ProsNEXON has a very liberal culture. Compared to other companies in South Korea, it's very young and energetic. It innovated online game industry with a new business model of free game with paid items. In addition, it has very strong balance sheet. It produced several popular online games and attracted a great number of young gamers from domestic and overseas markets. Although the games are technically free to play, most of the players are buying a lot of additional paid items to improve their virtual characters. Some of them are literally pouring all of their money into the games. With the stacked money, it acquired another successful game company in South Korea, and I heard some rumors from local news that Walt Disney Company is interested in acquiring NEXON at around two billion dollar.

    ConsIn recent few years, NEXON starts getting somewhat greedy. It seems to have forgotten what really matters in games is to serve its gamers at its best. Rather than putting much of its energy into making games more fun and interesting, it's concentrating on squeezing most money out of young gamers' pockets. Due to the change of its focus, it failed to produce successful games for the past two years in contrast to its early days. In recent few years, it's publishing games made from external game studios rather than making its own.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.
