Nintendo Employees Say NLC Don’t Trust NOA

September 6, 2012

Japan don’t trust him???
Nintendo employees have claimed Japan’s Nintendo (Nintendo Co Ltd./NCL) don’t trust Nintendo of America (NOA) and that important decisions regarding the company are decided in Japan, not North America. The employees said;

Current Nintendo Employee: Cons – Extremely hierarchical. Decisions are made in Japan and NOA employees are expected to execute. Initiative is not encouraged.

Former Nintendo Employee: Cons – Parent headquarters [Nintendo Co., Ltd.] micro-manages most marketing tactics. Spend most of your time explaining and justifying actions, instead of being innovative and agressive [sic] in the competitive video game industry. No work/life balance. Headquarters want to be cooperative but has difficulty trusting and allowing US subsidiary to be proactive.

Advice to Senior Management – Let the US subsidiary do their work and market in the style appropriate to our consumers. Move beyond finger pointing and finding scapegoats to making the best video games possible.
