I have been working at DeNA full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

DeNA always ensures that its employees are happy. They provide catered meals, have a fully stocked kitchen and tons of fun events. The people here are genuine, talented, and friendly. There isn't anyone who is more or less important than the person next to them. It's a wonderful way to work.

Cons

As with any company whose focus is mobile, many employees where many hats. The business pace can be very fast and require quick turnaround to stay on top of things.

    I have been working at DeNA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - People are generally nice
    - Catered meals
    - Great location
    - The current games are doing pretty well in the charts

    Cons

    - Lack of strategy and transparency! Ever since the new CEO has taken over, there has only been 1 all-hands. Management is essentially hoping that the new games are successful, but not explaining the steps we need to take to reach success.
    - Terrible morale because a lot of the veteran employees are leaving
    - Limited growth opportunities... but because of the high employee turnover, you will be promoted to a senior position eventually
    - A lot of technical debt in games and platform
    - HR needs to post fake reviews to attract new hires
    - Despite what they say, culture is not flat. New ideas often go nowhere.
    - Occasionally, you will run into politics/ego problems with people who won't compromise or aren't willing to listen to another point of view. Too bad that a few bad apples can spoil the bunch.
    - No clear direction on the future of the company

    - In general, this company is not great due to poor leadership and vision, but it's not a terrible work environment either if you want to just get by or get your foot in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your employees by explaining to us the long-range plan. Another re-org might be necessary. Who's in charge??? You need to talk to us!
