I worked at Mindvalley full-time (More than 5 years)
- You are surrounded by ambitious, young, passionate, intelligent people who are constantly trying to be the best version of themselves
- CEO has big visions and that is inspiring. And yes he does follow through with most of them.
- You will grow tremendously (on a daily basis) in all areas of your life by just interacting with everyone in Mindvalley.
- You have access to hundreds of personal development courses and books.
- The CEO is very accessible, just let him know if you need to talk. He will make time for you.
- CEO has heart and truly cares for your wellbeing, it's just difficult to show that to every individual in the whole company (that has 200 employees). I feel people expect too much of him, for him to be perfect, but he is human with flaws (like all of us) and for what he has accomplished, I think he is amazing.
- It is easy for you to move and grow into different teams and learn new skills. This is encouraged!
- Beautiful office to work in
- Fun culture
- Work hard and play hard is true here
- It's a fast growing company and certain foundations were not set up well when I was there (e.g. HR, Managerial Team). This will cause some confusion and stress.
- I encountered horrible bullying, threats and manipulation from my Manager and that is why I left, but if you happen to get the Manager I got, my advice is to speak up for yourself and bring it up with HR and the CEO.
(However, don't fret because the rest of the Mindvalley team is very loving and kind).
- I found Mindvalley to have too many meetings (and I had to work overtime to get my tasks done)
- Pay was a little low for the amount of work I had to get done. I felt like I was working in a role that required 2 people.
Advice to Management
Groom better managers, the ones that are not only smart and dedicated but also truly kind.
Keep the anonymous feedback system for all managers.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mindvalley (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in April-2013.
There were two Skype calls followed by an invitation to interview in their office in Kuala Lumpur. Their office space was impressive, and it has a very large room called the "Hall of Awesomeness." I met with the engineering team for about 30 minutes, followed by the founder for another 30 minutes.
The salary offered is take it or leave it, and travel expenses were never reimbursed.
Reasons for Declining
Salary is local and not competitive outside Malaysia.
