Multiple Contractors Come Forward Criticizing Nintendo’s Work Culture

IGN have released a new report which saw the outlet speak to a dozen current and former employees who are coming forward with Nintendo of America’s treatment towards contractors.

The company hire many contractors with the hopes of becoming full-time employees as they are said to be reluctant to hire or promote them to full-time employees. One anonymous source said they would also be very critical of contractors for basic acts including employees apologizing for leaving the workplace 15 minutes early. This source said:

“At first I attributed it to being a Japanese company and the expectations that came with it, but it was very much reinforced by the full-time staffers… It seemed like you had to be connected all the time.”

Another sources said that an interviewer said she had “attendance issues” after she had to leave partway through the interview process due to a death in her family.

Since articles from both Axios and Kotaku have been published regarding the work culture at Nintendo, moral and feelings towards the company have declined with the company with one current contractor who wished to remain anonymous telling the outlet:

“Right now the mood is really tense. Worst case scenario, because Nintendo of America is a marketing company, any article like Kotaku’s is marketing. And you really worry that Japan is going to see this and say, ‘Okay, what are we going to do about it?’”
