So what’s it like to work for Nintendo? While we couldn’t get any juicy, candid details, here is a sampling of what we come up with:

PalGN writes: “The offices located in the building are very roomy and highly decorated with many posters and other accessories, and Nintendo of Japan say they want every employee to have his/her own space… meals served at the cafeteria are up to five star qualities so one can eat there really well with some of the meals served. When itÂ?s time for Nintendo to have their well-deserved vacation (a month or so)… Nintendo of Japan begins to organize a number of activities ranging from tennis, golf, nature trips and heaps more. To sum it up, Nintendo of Japan employees have the enjoyment of their very own offices, high class cafeteria food, massages, huge libraries and out-going vacation activities.”

Revolution Europe writes: “Working at Nintendo feels more than amazing. What are the chances of ending up working in the company you have always tried to support? [They] are a good company to work for… I work in the European Product Analysis team, which makes it even more interesting as you get to see all the upcoming products. It is a major switch from being a journalist to being a Product Analyst which requires me to practically see everything that was kept hidden from me before. If my job did not require a NDA I would be able to make you understand.”

Beth Llewellyn, PR VP with Nintendo says: “IÂ?ve been working at Nintendo for over ten years now in the Marketing and Public Relations department. Nintendo is a great company and they take care of their employees.”

We really need to get a Nintendo employee blogging (We’re looking at you, Reggie). If you work for Nintendo, and are reading this, here are some blogger programs that will get you on your way: Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, MovableType, TextPattern, SquareSpace, and the list goes on. Otherwise, apply now!

    It would be a pretty good read if Reggie had a blog. I occasionally read Mark Cuban’s blog and find it to be somewhat interesting, if not a bit sloppy. Just to see the head of a multi-armed corporation spill his thoughts is interesting from a social aspect.

    I can’t say I how it is now, but I worked for Nintendo (NoA, right on the Redmond/Bellevue campus) about 4 years ago, and it was a great company to work for. A little stuffy at times (isn’t any corporate environment), but people were nice across the board, you didn’t get stuck with too much BS in terms of the culture, Cafe Mario was good for a cheap lunch (if you wanted it), and it was just fun in general.

    I’d love to be an engineer for Nintendo, and I live in the same state as NOA. Must get through college…

    Working for Nintendo is my dream job. NASA or Google would be great, too.

    If I ever work for Nintendo, I promise you’ll hear from me.

    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad
    is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
