I worked at NEXON full-time (Less than a year)
The culture there is awesome! People are friendly and the office looks amazing. The management and CEO running the operations really know what they are doing and the direction of the company seems to be moving up!
Pay is slightly lower than some of the big companies out there
Advice to Management
Things are great! Being in L.A though, everyone could use a little bit more money.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NEXON (El Segundo, CA).
The interview process (for me) was unprofessional and disorganized at best. The people I spoke with, and met, were all very nice and professional in-person. However; getting them to respond to general inquiries or even getting an answer about the job status is nearly impossible.
I understand that the candidate they are most interested in will get the most amount of responses/attention, but that doesn't mean that the company should abandon professional protocol. This is especially true when the candidates travel to an on-site interview. It's common courtesy on both sides to send, at the least, a quick note detailing a job status update.
Other than that negative outlook, the interview process was pretty standard. Phone screening first, then an on-site interview. The on-site interview determines whether or not you got the job. The questions were mostly of my background/resume, and less about "Tell us your greatest weakness." Though, this may change based on who is interviewing you.
Hope this helps to the fellow Glassdoor readers.
