    I worked at NEXON

    Pros

    Great work environment. People are great. You get to meet many talented individuals. Profit sharing options which motivates you to increase your performance at work. Employees get to express their ideas freely without any fear of being ridiculed or rejected because every ideas are great even though some of them might not be suitable for the company. Every developer will get a chance to attend the developer conference every year which is great. Great health benefits. Management is cooperative and supportive. Work on a small productive team. The office is nice and comfortable. Free coffees and teas. Access to the gym.

    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.

    I have been working at NEXON

    Pros

    NEXON has a very liberal culture. Compared to other companies in South Korea, it's very young and energetic. It innovated online game industry with a new business model of free game with paid items. In addition, it has very strong balance sheet. It produced several popular online games and attracted a great number of young gamers from domestic and overseas markets. Although the games are technically free to play, most of the players are buying a lot of additional paid items to improve their virtual characters. Some of them are literally pouring all of their money into the games. With the stacked money, it acquired another successful game company in South Korea, and I heard some rumors from local news that Walt Disney Company is interested in acquiring NEXON at around two billion dollar.

    Cons

    In recent few years, NEXON starts getting somewhat greedy. It seems to have forgotten what really matters in games is to serve its gamers at its best. Rather than putting much of its energy into making games more fun and interesting, it's concentrating on squeezing most money out of young gamers' pockets. Due to the change of its focus, it failed to produce successful games for the past two years in contrast to its early days. In recent few years, it's publishing games made from external game studios rather than making its own.
