I worked at NCsoft full-time for more than a yearPros
For those in Austin there is still time to hop off of the ship, jump on your own terms. Even if the most recent entry into the market was a success Austin's future appeared to be in doubt. What did NC do to the Paragon office? What did NC do in Seattle? Take the reigns and plan your departure on your own terms.Cons
No leadership, no direction, no support, 100% CYA. The Austin office is void of any Sr management talent, it's hands down the most incompetent executive/leadership team I have ever been around. Apparently this is what happens when you drop a customer service manager into a senior executive position.
There will be no career advancement in Austin, it was consistently suggested in passing that I consider moving out to California even though "Austin is safe" and executives promised to "routinely visit the office". As the office and career development opportunities continue to shrink, don't blame NCSoft, you need to look in the mirror and figure out if this is the best position to put you and your family.
Check the NC careers page, does it look like they are replacing any of the Austin employees that have departed? Why do you think that's the case?Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO

Their recruiter found me via LinkedIn and gave me a call. After speaking for a short period of time I stated I was interested and I believe we set up a time for an in-person team interview and I came in for about a 3hr long interview (i.e. typical portfolio review and hours of talking to the team) and afterwords I left. On my way out of the building I got a call with an offer and accepted.

NCsoft is hardcore for fans of massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG). Its 1998 debut Lineage helped mold the genre, and continues -- mostly in the form of sequels and expansions -- to be among the most popular in the niche. Now the hit title shares the spotlight with Aion (which trails only Blizzard's World of Warcraft in total subscribers for a premium MMORPG), and is supported by prominent titles such as City of Heroes and Guild Wars. NCsoft also produces casual online games such as shooter Point Blank and strategy game Murim Jekook. The company has...
