"Living my dream"Jul 28, 2021

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at NCSOFT full-time for less than a year

Pros

I spent most of high school avoiding people and playing video games. My parents never thought I would amount to much, but I’ve already managed to work my way up and establish my value to the company.... I’m doing exactly what they never believed I could: I’m getting paid to design and play video games. It’s a dream come true, and also the best comeuppance to my family. This is the most fun, exciting job I’ve ever had. High school me could not be prouder of who I am today. And, to be honest, I couldn’t be prouder either. I’m working at one of the top video game companies in the world, getting paid a good salary for work that involves playing video games, and I’m finally surrounded by people who not only understand me, but are exactly like me. I’m in my personal version of heaven.

Cons

I don’t understand people who want a “work-life balance”. I’m over here trying to figure out how to spend MORE time at work.

Games seemed to trend down and the company has a lot of bad press.

Advice to Management

Honestly I had a blast.
