Following in the footsteps of arch-nemesis Nexon, Netmarble recently announced that the average annual salary of current employees, including those in various subsidiaries, will see an increment of 8 million Korean Won (around 7,200 USD) on average. Similar to Nexon, the annual salary of new employees will be increased to 50 million Korean Won (around 45,000 USD) for development staff and 45 million Korean Won (around 40,000 USD) for non-development employees.
Netmarble is also providing 100,000 Korean Won (around 90.00 USD) per month as meal subsidies for employees and also increasing dinner subsidy to 10,000 Korean Won (around 9.00 USD). These increments are to reflect the living costs since Netmarble relocated to the current new building where prices for meals are higher. Of course, Netmarble did very well financially on the business side, seeing great growth in operating profits.
