    Managers genuinely care

    Pros

    Managers seem to genuinely care about your well being. They go out of their way to ask on your mental health throughout the day and also make to organize meetings and other events to break up the monotony of the day/. Work/life balance is incredible right off the bat. Recruitment is great about hiring the right people for the right positions and making this place incredible. Get to work on some of the best games out there and constantly keeping skills sharp with new tech.

    Cons

    Approvals for almost anything can take a very long time. Strict company policies and guidelines. Collaboration can be difficult with time zones.

    Really great company culture

    Pros

    NCSOFT has a pretty great culture and they really do care about their employees. They are very cognizant of the work-life balance and make efforts to ease this for people. It's a fun place to work, thanks in large part to the people, but we are also very results oriented without getting too bogged down into the quagmire of micromanagement and overly specific details. The job also comes with a number of benefits that have been pretty great.

    Cons

    The gaming industry isn't easy. Change is constant and operating successful games comes with a price. I do worry that we sometimes don't take enough risks in order to reap greater rewards.

    Strong leadership

    Pros

    We have a focused senior management team that are all on the same page and all believe in the master plan for the company. The products we are building are amazing. We are hiring top talent and investing in training our staff at the highest level I have seen in my time here. The overall compensation package is top notch, the in office daily perks have only gotten better and special staff events are happening more frequently. The office and culture is like no other place I have worked at.

    Cons

    A vocal minority can distract senior leadership, causing them to chase small, unimportant wants. These people either need to change their mindsets and embrace the direction we’re headed in or move on - why go to a job you hate?
