    I worked at NCSOFT full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great, talented colleagues...and that's it.

    Cons

    - Old fashioned company with old fashioned rules and approaches to development. (no work from home, no flexible PTO.) - Management completely and utterly incompetent with no understanding of the western games market. - Management approved a big hiring push for a new game they apparently didn't support...and then shut the game down...and then shut the studio down. What a senseless waste. - Poor communication between management and studio heads, to the point where they needed to hire someone as a go-between. (Always a good sign...)

    Advice to Management

    First of all, be ashamed of yourselves. Secondly, figure out what your goals are and communicate it to your studio heads. Preferably before they staff up and start work on the project you told them you wanted done.
