    "Settling in or looking for career growth?"

    I worked at Nintendo

    Pros

    The People, the brand and the products

    Cons

    Lacks pay growth and development

    Advice to Management

    It’s really time to start valuing modern leadership skills and support managers and leaders with proper development paths. The basics are barely being covered, modeled or supported and that is a product of the tenure culture. There are people in roles of leading who have a timeline to retire or just hangout and do the minimum.

    I have been working at Nintendo full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Work Life Balance, bonuses

    Cons

    Lack of promoting from within, lack of transparency, discriminatory pay & bonuses, blatant favoritism, ageism, cronyism is rapant. You will never get full bonus or large increase in pay unless you are a top performer. They imply that you will - but trust me, you won't.

    Advice to Management

    Strong organizations move their people up and do not hire outsiders to grow their business. This just shows you don't value your employees or provide them with opportunities to grow. How do you show you value your current employees if you constantly hire outside the company at higher rates than you are willing to pay your current employees?

    I worked at Nintendo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brand recognition and generosity with giveaways and benefits. Great having a company store on site. See amazingly talented people work there.

    Cons

    Keep poor managers. Not safe to challenge the status quo. Too many processes. Inefficient and ineffective. Leadership doesn't care because too busy politicking.

    I worked at Nintendo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is great, CEO involved

    Cons

    Very little advancement in a lot of departments, management in my department was not available and played favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at who is best for opportunities. People fighting to learn and advance instead of playing favorites.

    I worked at Nintendo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really good people to work with. Product is fun and industry is engaging.

    Cons

    Org works lean so the workload is heavy. Senior Mgt tends not to mix with most of the work force and a distinct lack of appreciation for efforts. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the barriers and mix and seek input from all employees. Hire more women in Senior Management.

    I worked at Nintendo full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Everyone loves the product. There is true passion behind the company.

    Cons

    Career advancement is slow. Some processes are outdated and inefficient. People don't leave the company so new ways of thinking are rarely implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward talent. Get rid of dead weight on teams. Too many people get comfortable at Nintendo and stop trying.
