I worked at Nintendo of America

Pros

Incompetent manager wouldn't want you to work hard, so if you're determined to sit back, relax, and collect check, there's no other place better.
Good benefit
Fun product
No layoffs

Cons

No layoffs means no change. Many of the management are there for 20+ year, and proud of it. Many of them joined Nintendo fresh out of college, or in some cases, high school. They do not know how the world outside Nintendo works. They do not know managers in the other successful companies are highly educated and competitive.

Because the old timers won't leave, there's no room for young talented people to move up. Many smart young people left. Those who get promotions are lazy workers who spend 50% of his day sucking up to management, lying about his achievements. Very disappointing for honest, hardworking, capable people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The review in ONLY top down. No manager gets comments from subordinates. No use to complain to manager above, as they all protect themselves, knowing the limitation of their competencies. They really need 360 degree review process.

    Pros

    People are very good to work with; most people are experienced and know what they are doing; Most managers are good at what they do; very nice new headquarter; company gym, soccer field; good pay and bonus structure; longevity of employees

    Cons

    Culture is changing for the bad; many people are getting scared for their positions with the recent results; big lay off in IT; new systems going into place that people don't like; organization is run pretty lean

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in more man power; Pay attention to the mood of the company now that layoffs have occurred; pay attention to the competitors tactics or we could lose our market leadership

    I have been working at Nintendo of America

    Pros

    decent benefits
    product is fun

    Cons

    treated like a child, lack of communication, favoritism, micromanaged accounting of time and lack of acknowledgement for positive results, no praise, low morale, no consequence for doing a great job versus doing just enough to get by, general feeling that employees are dispensable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you treat your employees with respect, they will work better for you.
