    I worked at Nexon M full-time

    Pros

    - one of the strongest user acquisition teams in the mobile gaming space, both in depth of knowledge/experience, media buying strategy, and size - UA team is very close-knit with great leadership - every UA member gets to work on every game that comes through, no siloing - lots of high quality games to work on - portfolio is diverse with new projects constantly being added to the pipeline (great place to be if you're a gamer) - great work-life balance

    Cons

    - expect to be kept busy with constant game launches and new projects - UA team is larger than most, so workload can be diffused at time - as with the nature of the game industry, expect project timelines to shift and games to be added/dropped on short notice

    I worked at Nexon M full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Comradely among employees, talented people (until majority either quit or got fired) A lot of good food nearby. Available parking

    Cons

    Toxic atmosphere created by senior management (micromanagement, personal attacks and retaliation for speaking your mind). Group punishment of employees (never heard of “mandatory overtime” for entire software development group.. The most incompetent getting promotions, while the most productive employees are pushed to leave the company or laid off arbitrary (layoffs followed by a hiring spree just a week later).
