    I worked at Square Enix full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really fun to work here because all of your co-workers are video game fans like yourself. HMO was great, tuition reimbursement was fantastic, 401k matching very good

    Cons

    Pay is very bad, managers are just the people who stuck around long enough to make it to that level (so not exactly professional), upper management from Japan is out of touch with the general workers, obsessed with downsizing (no real job security) and time management, all department positions seem to be same pay despite skill set of individual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement really makes the entry level positions awful. You shouldn't have to clock out to use the rest room.

    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.
