Major growths and recent re-organizations has changed the overall culture of the company

Advice to Management

Invest in training your existing staff instead of simply bringing in new people.

    I worked at Nintendo of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture of the workplace was amazing. I did not go a day at work without smiling or laughing.

    Cons

    Testers are treated with very little respect. The company requires that you take two months off a year to avoid you gaining rights. They lose a lot of good talent this way.

    Pros

    Nintendo of America had pretty amazing health benefits while I worked there. Additionally you get some nice discounts on video games, systems and memorabilia. There were also plenty of perks like free Mariners tickets, a yearly raffle for a chance to get their Hawaii house for a week (you only paid airfare and taxes, not free but still an amazing deal) and plenty of other stuff. It generally felt "fun" working there. They also offered to pay for training in Japanese language and culture and there were opportunities to travel to Japan and work with them over there.

    Cons

    The pay in the Information Technology Department was really pretty dismal. With Microsoft literally less than a mile away it's hard to believe they attract and retain talent, though work life balance at Nintendo is probably miles ahead of MS or any other high tech on the Eastside.

    Advice to Management

    Overall I always felt management was doing a pretty good job the only thing I would say is that they could probably do a better job of breaking down some of the departmental walls (especially within IT) and work more on collaborating outside of each others individual units.
