Nintendo has revealed some interesting stats about its work culture, including average working hours and salary.
A recruitment page on the company's Japanese website (spotted by Niko Partners' Daniel Ahmad) offers a breakdown for graduates thinking of applying to the platform holder, and reports that the average annual salary is ¥9.03 million ($80,000) -- although obviously entry-level wages are considerably lower.
Employees also potentially get bonuses in June and December, plus a pay increase every April.
It also reveals the average working day at Nintendo is seven hours, forty-five minutes, with staff in head office starting and finishing slightly earlier than those in development.
As of September 2018, Nintendo employees 2,271 regular employees -- the average age of which is 38.6 years old. Full-time employees stay at the company for an average 13.5 years.
The company plans to hire 81 graduates this year, a significant increase on the 59 it hired last year (which in itself was an incremental improvement on the previous three years).
It's an interesting insight into the working practices of a large games company following the reinvigorated discussion about industry crunch last year, kickstarted by Dan Houser's revelation that some Rockstar staff worked 100-hour weeks on Red Dead Redemption 2.
