    I have been working at Square Enix full-time (more than an year)


    Flexible hours allowing for a good work-life balance.
    Central office.
    Health benefits.


    I don't think this applies to all departments, but I work there under very abusive and incompetent management and have to deal with a disastrous workflow and with bullying every day, and for pennies, too. One day I decided to talk about it with my manager. I think this short extract from the reply I faced says it all: "Being happy at work is not the norm. Just because you're unhappy doesn't mean I have to do something about it." Welcome to Square Enix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve (sorry: start, simply) training
    Improve pay
    Understand that a happy employee is a productive employee, stop bullying and start rewarding.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Square Enix.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was very straightforward. The actual interview was very pleasant. I think it would be hard for anyone to feel uncomfortable. There were no super hard questions, as long as you do your research beforehand.
