Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at NCSOFT full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Employee focused - Amazing benefits - Committed to the future

Cons

- Middle management is very junior - Organization is very spread out

Advice to Management

Make decisions quicker on if products move forward. Many of the games that have been shut down were in development much too long before the tough decisions were made. Start small and if they don't... work, fail fast. This will provide more opportunity for better products.

"Future Uncertain"Mar 16, 2016

Former Employee - Software Engineer

I worked at Carbine Studios full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good game Great talent Caring management Good community of developers Even in the layoffs they treated us well with severance packages. I'd work for them again.

Cons

There were layoffs recently so not as much of the "Pros" mentioned above, still some. Carbine may be a sinking ship at this point but they may yet turn things around. While the future may be... uncertain right now, if things improve financially then I'd say go for it.

Advice to Management

I hope you can turn things around financially. Things were looking good for a while, a lot of good changes for the better happened. WildStar is a good game and you still have some good people. Take... care of them and things might just turn out alright.
