    "Good benefit, good workplace if you don't want to work hard"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Incompetent manager wouldn't want you to work hard, so if you're determined to sit back, relax, and collect check, there's no other place better.
    Good benefit
    Fun product
    No layoffs

    Cons

    No layoffs means no change. Many of the management are there for 20+ year, and proud of it. Many of them joined Nintendo fresh out of college, or in some cases, high school. They do not know how the world outside Nintendo works. They do not know managers in the other successful companies are highly educated and competitive.

    Because the old timers won't leave, there's no room for young talented people to move up. Many smart young people left. Those who get promotions are lazy workers who spend 50% of his day sucking up to management, lying about his achievements. Very disappointing for honest, hardworking, capable people.

    Advice to Management

    The review in ONLY top down. No manager gets comments from subordinates. No use to complain to manager above, as they all protect themselves, knowing the limitation of their competencies. They really need 360 degree review process.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    pay is okay
    decent benefits
    product is fun

    Cons

    treated like a child, lack of communication, favoritism, micromanaged accounting of time and lack of acknowledgement for positive results, no praise, low morale, no consequence for doing a great job versus doing just enough to get by, general feeling that employees are dispensable

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with respect, they will work better for you.
