Featured Review

Current Employee - Data Scientist

I have been working at NEXON America full-time

Pros

My co-workers are great to work with, the data infrastructure is well built and maintained, and the management listens to us when we say we need additional tools and services. The pay is solid for... the role as well. Nexon treats its workers well, even during work-from-home.

Cons

Nexon is a large company based in Korea. Therefore, in Nexon America, you can feel a little distant from the primary decision-makers, and nearly all large decisions must pass through them.
