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.

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

Pros

MZ is a great place for folks who are motivated by their personal growth. There's very little that gets in the way of making big contributions, and impact is regularly recognized and rewarded.... There's huge potential for people that are self driven and not afraid of stepping up. That said, MZ is not for the faint of heart or folks just looking for a job. Awesome perks and benefits that outclass most any other privately held company, and rival any of the name brand public companies like Google, FB, etc. Last years change in executive leadership and renewed focus on gaming has been a blessing! Teams are more focused and aligned, and the tone around campus is brighter than I've seen in years.

Cons

Very aggressive schedules and goals. Makes an exciting work environment, but also takes it's toll. We are a business and need to keep the bills paid, but hopeful we can find a bit more balance... between company objectives, catering to our player base, and employee lifestyles.

Advice to Management

Keep up the momentum! We're making a lot of positive changes around top down transparency, focus on gaming products, and how the company will mature. Let's keep pushing the envelope! Keep a good... pulse on employee engagement. Our teams work really hard, and staying engaged with front line employees will be the key to keeping moral high as we take MZ to it's next stage as a company.
