Pros

Flexible schedule.
Good opportunity to interact with the games industry professionals.
Discounts at Nintendo's company store.
Nice Christmas gifts.

Cons

1. No 401k matching.
2. The annual performance review is just a paper trail. Performance expectations are vague, subjective, and are left up to the administrations' preferences.
3. Not all the available job openings are announced and the interview process is not for everyone. Less qualified people can get hired just because of personal relations with the administration.
4. The chances of being promoted or of getting a raise are very slim.
5. The turnover rate of employees was high in the past few years. Many highly qualified employees left within a period of 1-2 years of employment.
6. The academic titles are meaningless and a total mess.

Advice to Management

Treat all employees equally, fairly, and respectfully.
Recognize hard work and retain good employees.

    I worked at DigiPen Institute of Technology part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the housing department doing minor maintenance on the units and was very pleasantly surprised at how well they paid, and how accommodating they were to my class schedule. I was able to choose my own hours and weekly schedule and if ever I needed to focus on studying or a project they were happy to accommodate.

    Cons

    Often times there was not enough work to justify the job and I was left to do arbitrary administrative work.
