Nintendo Japan employees tend to stay 13.5 years – Destructoid


And other facts

If you enjoy learning random information about Nintendo’s inner workings, you’ll want to see the company’s new Japanese recruiting page. The site has a few notable data points that people would like to know about as potential employees, and for the rest of us curious, it’s just fascinating to see.

For example, would you have guessed that the average length of employment at Nintendo Co., Ltd. is 13.5 years old? With industry layoffs dominating the news cycle lately, that’s quite the number.

The higher average age, 38.6, also stands out. I imagine there are nuances and wiggle room for some stats, and that doesn’t apply to Nintendo’s operations around the world, but even still, those numbers make a pretty compelling argument for graduates who are considering applying for a concert in Japan. I want to see what the next generation of designers can come up with in this kind of working environment.

Making quality games that are fun at launch and that will last for years to come is a challenge. Achieve this in a long-term sustainable way for the company and its staff? This is the dream.
