QA Tester (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – October 28, 2015
A lot of the techniques and processes used felt straight out of 2007. They seem to have good plans but terrible execution and weak follow through. Nexon seems bent on following this execution and less concerned on growing great employees.
Great people, social atmosphere
Terrible career path, weak willed management, old school development mentality, low pay
CUSTOMER SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 17, 2014

Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) – El Segundo, CA – May 12, 2013
Work / life balance is getting better.
Benefits HR shows off are just better than nothings. They still say they are providing us the best values.
Lots of foreign coworkers. I don't mind them as long as they do what they are hired to do, but when it was time to shrink the size of the company, HR didn't hesitate to let them go, not by firing them, but just stopping their VISA sponsorship or not promoting them. Dirty play..
Some people just don't get any chances to learn professional skills to advance in their careers.
lots to learn if you need experiences
not competitive salary and benefits, lack of job security
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 3, 2012
Typical day did not exist back then, as we were in start-up mode which made it exciting. I learned so much about the online games as a service, along with all of the channel partners for services. Great co-workers whom I stay in touch with. But the hardest part about this job was the management culture which was based and nurtured overseas with no room for growth. And the most enjoyable part of this job was that we were paving the way for other companies to create a new business model in the states. And the people whom I worked closely with were brilliant.
Great Place to work to get into the Video Game Industry and Front-End Web Development
Jr. Production Artist (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – February 21, 2012
Nexon America is a great place to work as there were a lot of greatly skilled employees in which we worked as a cohesive family/team. The direction of our manager was excellent as he let us know what needed to be done, and had us very motivated. I felt as thought there was a great room of growth for the skills I wanted to attain, and that there was plenty of help from each other to be able to develop that for one another. Nexon also had very current software and adequate technology for us to work with also.
free lunches tues and fridays, team outings, great work environment
