  1. And there will be more. Just wait mid-july after they receive their bonuses. There will be an exodus across the board.

    They don’t pay, their semi-annual bonus sucks and most of all their business practices are unethical. Liars, liars, wii on fire.

  2. Nintendo is hiring big time because of the exodus. I feel bad for the newbies. It is a brain drain that’s going to cost them dearly. They have been short staffed for a while now. I know a number of Nintendo employees who are burning out. It’s true about the base salary. They are really cheap and a significant Nintendo managers are plain incompetent.

  3. Nintendo’s success of late would normaly be a good thing. I guess not. Low salary or something else internally is the question. Inside information welcomed.
