    Pros

    Great people to work with. The company overall sets employees up with the tools needed to get the job, this includes software and hardware.

    Cons

    Upper management don't take the opinions of people below them very well, or very rarely into consideration. No guarantee of long term employment if you are on a game title that is canceled or is no longer published by Nexon.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NEXON full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    NOTE: My review is mostly about my localization team experience. - Katy was one of the best bosses that I have ever had. I learned a lot from her. I could always count on her to hear us out and treat us fairly. - Nice coworkers - Thorough training - Collaborative environment - Flexible lunch time

    Cons

    - Frequent overtime for some team members (but it was steadily improving as I was leaving Nexon.) - Work-life balance was a challenge for my position (but that's not the case for everyone) - Slightly lower pay than the industry average in LA area as mentioned by employees from other Nexon teams
