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

    Pros

    It is still a good company if you care about making a big-scale PC game. If you are new to game industry or software engineering, spending a year or two might make sense as this place is serving many successful games. If you are comfortable with not changing much, this place can be good.

    Cons

    If you are eager to do something, avoid this place. Too much legacy. Most of smart and passionate people already left.

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

    Pros

    lunch breaks, benefits, the usual. They also have a nice break area. The view is great. If anything, this made working for the company tolerable.

    Cons

    The employees know nothing about their game, and purposefully neglect the playerbase. This is terrible practice, and I truly hope that they rectify it in the future. Most of the time, the employees run around in confusion. Especially during regular game maintenance. It is truly pathetic and I am glad to have escaped their clutches.

    I worked at NEXON full-time

    Pros

    The company is getting lots of money. Financially stable.

    Cons

    Even it has a lot of money, you can not expect any incentive. The company has a history of firing many employees even it had grown up more than 30 percentage comparing to the previous year.
