Terrible environment, unorganized, lack of leadership and absolutely no support

Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

ProsThe only reason was the location of the office, downtown Seattle.

ConsThere is not enough words to explain how terrible this place is. There were people who would last one day, on average employees would leave every 3 months, just enough time to realize how messed-up the company was. No leadership, complete chaos caused by the HQ and the lack of professionalism in the Seattle office. I could not wish this company to my enemy. The joke at the end of every week was how many emails we would get from HR informing us that people were leaving (though usually, HR would send an email per exec. request 3-4 weeks after the employees had left). The exec. team tries to hide everything. Employees are treated like idiots. No support, no recognition, no raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementShut down this mess and at least do yourself a favor...or go through a total revamp.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not so much of a has-been, more a never-was.

    Product Manager (Former Employee) Brighton, England (UK)

    I worked at NCsoft

    Pros: Massively multiplayer online games are arguably the biggest growth sector in gaming - and it's all that NCsoft does. If you want to be in… Cons: The company always seemed rudderless and without any sort of long-term strategy - indeed it was admitted time and again that this was the case.… Advice to Senior Management: Try something different. Try something original. Just try something ELSE. Surely two failed games in a row should tell you something, no? Also: might be a… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
