The company offers statistics
It also allows us to check the average age and hours of work of its employees.
It is not surprising that a company as big as Nintendo has representation all over the world, but today we have to talk about the headquarters, located in Kyoto. Nintendo Japan has shared a statistical report on its employees, later collected by analyst Daniel Ahmad of Niko Partners, better known by the pseudonym ZhugeEX.
According to this article, from Japan they have 2,271 employees with an average of 38.6 years of age. They work 7 hours and 45 minutes a day (at least officially) and their salary is $ 80,000 per year on average. In addition, they accumulate about 13.5 years of seniority in the company, something that does not surprise us if we consider that in Japan it is usually understood that a job is for life.
Nintendo Japan seems to move away from the infamous ‘crunch’ that is spoken so much by the West, while the situation in Nintendo America is somewhat more hectic: Reggie Fils-Aimé, the current president, will retire in April to make way for Doug Bowser. There is no record of the changes that will be made internally.
