Freelance employees of the Nintendo Of America QA department told Kotaku about the unhealthy situation inside the company.

According to the testers, Nintendo is reluctant to hire women, more often refuses them a raise and pays a lower salary. Nepotism also flourishes in the company: to move to the state, you need to “be friends with the right people,” but these people can behave offensively. For example, making rude jokes, flirting with employees and harassing them.

Nintendo Of America has not commented on the Kotaku material.
