Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at DeNA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Food, drinks, alcohol.
- A culture team that somehow manages to throw decent events.
- After working here for a while the job opportunities outside of the company increase
- Highly overqualified and under utilized employees
- If you play politics over work, you can go far here.

Cons

- Not a meritocracy
- Inexperienced executives. They keep promoting themselves without having delivered anything. Executives are the reason this company is failing as they create a political work environment. Some don't realize how obvious it is to everyone they have no clue what they are doing,
- Low salary, no real stock options, no bonuses
- Politically infested and hostile work environment

Advice to Management

Step down. Fire the whole executive team before they run the company into the ground.

    I worked at DeNA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During most of my time at DeNA one of the core values was ownership. You'll have the opportunity to own a part of the business, and if you're capable and innovative, you'll earn the recognition you deserve.

    Cons

    The business strategy continually pivoted. While not innately negative, past learnings were often ignored which led to costly errors and time lost.
