    I have been working at Nintendo of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits at Nintendo are extremely generous. Not only do they offer a 401K plan, but also a pension. The longevity of the employees here is the highest I've seen. People choose to stay because of the wonderful people and management that you get to work for and with.

    Cons

    The flip-side of having longevity with the employees limits new ideas from being introduced and implemented.
