    I have been working at NEXON full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Majority of the people you work with are friendly, hardworking, and come from a variety of backgrounds.
    - Although your experience at Nexon depends on your department and managers, I've yet to come across someone who wasn't willing to provide their support.
    - Fun tournaments, happy hours, company lunches, and team outings!
    - The El Segundo branch is located in a great area. There are plenty of places to eat nearby that you can walk or uber to at a low cost. You can also take the shuttle downtown if you'd like.
    - The new CEO is young, passionate, and friendly. He's willing to listen to what Nexies have to say, and I think that's important. He's all about visibility and tries to keep everyone in the loop.

    Cons

    - If you don't live in the area, driving can be absolute hell, but lots of people are willing to drive the distance to work here, so don't let the scary LA traffic prevent you from applying.
    - It's not Blizzard or Riot, but it's still a great, growing company that's huge globally. Also, you'll be surprised at how many people that work at Nexon right now are actually from Blizzard, Riot, or other mainstream gaming companies that everyone always raves about.

    Fun laid back environment.
    Great People.
    Great location and office.
    Fun games.

    If you relate to the companies goals and work 110% and come in smiling you will love it here.

    Cons

    Honestly have no complaints, I believe if anyone that is unhappy with their job did not try hard enough to be happy at their job. This being said sure there are hard times but you have to go above and beyond to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop believing.

    Cons

    The job compensation is well on average within the industry.
    Because the number of people is small, there are fewer chances to build your network or to meet new people.
    Sometimes during the crunch time or before delivery you will have to do some overtime work without any overtime pay.
    They do not offer any stock options because it is a private company.
    There are no retirement saving plans.
    There are no foods or snacks provided.
    There are no educational or self enhancement programs to support you in career advancement.
    The bonus and benefits given is below average within the industry.

    Advice to Management

    They are really great because they listen to what the developers have to say and more importantly they actually do believe in what they say.
