    Pros

    - Employee focused
    - Amazing benefits
    - Committed to the future

    Kontras

    - Middle management is very junior
    - Organization is very spread out

    Rat an das Management

    Make decisions quicker on if products move forward. Many of the games that have been shut down were in development much too long before the tough decisions were made. Start small and if they don't work, fail fast. This will provide more opportunity for better products.

    Pros

    • Iconic MMORPG products with global reach
    • Small company feel with long company history and financial stability
    • Tons of opportunity to learn new skills and shape your role in the company

    Kontras

    • Currently has a limited live products, but has aggressive growth plan
    • With any large company, especially a global one, there are going to be miscommunications and internal politics, NCSOFT is no different
    • Has struggled to find its footing in a post-MMORPG crazed world

    Rat an das Management

    • We need to become a more transparent, player focused company. People spend tons of money and time in our games and we need to show them that we care and are on this journey together. This means longer term planning for new titles so the game can find an audience, and showing integrity when we make mistakes. If we make significant changes to our approach to player interaction and feedback, we will be able to cultivate a more positive future for our company.
    • Not every product can be a hit, but keep taking chances on new titles and genres
    • Just because an approach works in one region doesn't mean it is going to work across the globe. We need all teams to understand that specific regions (especially onces across multiple continents) need extra support and unique features to operate our titles successfully.
    • We have the opportunity to make a huge impact in the game industry, but we need to ensure we have the right people in place. Keeping toxic employees that are more interested in asserting authority and collecting a paycheck are holding us all back.
    • I have rated NCSOFT a 4 out of 5 as I am cautiously optimistic for our future.

    Pros

    * Little intervention from the HQ in South Korea meant we enjoyed a surprising amount of freedom and agency in making our game.

    * Pay was barely competitive with the rest of the SF market

    * Benefits were good

    * The specific studio I am/was at had an incredible office culture, and a really admirable adherence to keeping a healthy work/life balance. We're getting shut down, though, so I don't know what surviving studios are like.

    Kontras

    * All that freedom I mentioned came at the cost of upper brass decision making feeling really distant and opaque culminating in our studio getting canned just when we thought we were about to launch with a (hopefully) successful game. This whole experience gave me the impression that HQ is pretty clueless about how to manage their western studios.

    * Rev share was promised (more like dangled at the end of a stick) and now is just moot because we (the studio that made the game) aren't going to be around when the game finally launches.

    Rat an das Management

    Maybe try not shutting down studios literally right as they are gearing up to launch their game. We didn't even get the chance to prove whether it was all worth it. If the game launches and is a huge success, almost none of the original developers will see a dime from it, which is a real shame.

    Pros

    Free snack and beverages. Location is good.

    Kontras

    Some managers are good, but majority of managers are just good as manipulator. CEO needs to show a better leadership and treat employees with RESPECT. Company’s turnover rate is pretty high. It is very disorganized company..

    Pros

    The usual perks you get when you work in the game industry: It's acceptable to play games (within reason), free snacks/culture related events every once in a while.

    Kontras

    It's difficult to quantify how bad the company is. Leadership has neglected nearly every single area of the company. Career opportunities are pretty much 0 unless you are extremely political or are able to talk your way up. This is due to the fact that management/leadership is completely clueless of the needs of each department and what it requires to function properly. I've seen people with less than a few years in their discipline rise all the way to the top, while the qualified candidates who are honest and promote integrity are ignored.

    According to the company surveys, over 50% of the employees are looking for other jobs. I'd even put management in the same basket. As a result, you get a lot of people in leadership with the "I'm leaving soon, so it doesn't matter" attitude. I'd like to think that this is the reason why most in management ignore the company issues, but I won't rule out incompetence either. On the topic of employee surveys, what ever happened to those? The company got decimated with bad internal reviews, but took no steps to fix anything tangible within the company.

    As I briefly mentioned politics, you'll see plenty of professional bus throwers here. With no real leadership at the company, it makes sense that people are allowed to get away with it. Especially when, as I mentioned, people are rewarded for it. If you could lie about your experience, get away with it and get promoted, why wouldn't you? That being said, there are a few good people mixed throughout.

    What about working for a place where the exec group doesn't understand it's own products? Most don't even possess prerequisite or elementary knowledge of the industry.

    Rat an das Management

    Stop re-organizing the bottom when you need to be re-organizing the top. As they always say "crap flows downhill!" It certainly does here, and it's the direct cause of 90% of the issues at this company.

    You need to start rewarding employees who have actual experience in their field, and put a stop to the talk-your-way-up policies. Remove everyone who you put up at the top with dishonest politics, and replace them with the employees who have actual integrity.

    Pros

    The people you work with are nice.

    Kontras

    Completely dysfunctional organization, the upper management is so bad that the CEO actively dislikes video games and doesn’t play them or know what they’re looking at. Don’t bother with a game pitch unless it’s an esoteric non-game. The company has no green light process for new titles and if it did the upper management wouldn’t know what they’re looking at. They attempted a re-org that was made company wide knowledge but still wasn’t decided after 8-months which left the entire organization in a state of paralysis. Like getting promoted? Not here. The VP of HR told everyone in an all hands meeting that they don’t promote based on merit (so don’t bother doing a good job), they promote on need only, whatever that is? At any time half of the company is actively applying for new jobs. Managers leave and their job rec is just closed, so was that manager not needed or is the company now even more handicapped? Morale is through the floor. Giving the employees an Xbox One X as a morale boost wasn’t even pulled off correctly when $250 was taken off the next paycheck to cover taxes. Everything just fails spectacularly at NCSOFT, even with good intentions. It’s truly the bad place.

    Rat an das Management

    Replace yourselves with anyone who isn’t you, or more specifically anyone who likes and actively plays video games and understands them. Break away from KR funding. Establish core principles that are real, not just corporate buzzwords.
