    I worked at NCSOFT full-time

    Pros

    The work environment was excellent. There was zero micro-management. I was able to come in and do what was expected of me without worrying about someone peeking over my shoulder at all times. There was a great sense of trust from management that I was capable of peforming my tasks without constantly being monitored.

    Cons

    The Austin office felt very isolated from the rest of the company. Being a Korean company whose US headquarters is located in California, at times it felt as though we were disconnected from the rest of the organization. The office was almost entirely closed in 2015, and many of us were suddenly let go in the reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees with respect and trust, but communicating more about issues that are affecting the organization at large would do a lot to squash the rumors that often pop up.
