    Cons

    There's not really anything negative I've ever experienced in my 10 months at Prodigy. This job really is an absolute dream come true.

    The only potentially negative points would be, Fast-Paced/Big goal work environment, which can lead to high levels of stress. These shouldn't scare you away from this revolutionary company though if anything you should be excited about these things! Prodigy provides you with the tools for success/growth, part of the process is taking risks and learning on the fly!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being so involved, and transparent with our company direction. Both of you are an absolute inspiration for all employees at Prodigy. Please don't ever lose the sight of your core company values, since those are what truly unites us all together at Prodigy. Motivating us to achieve our company mission and to help all students around the world to love learning!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Prodigy Game (Burlington, ON) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR first to have a phone interview. Didn't get any phone call. I had to remind them and reschedule. When it finally happened, it turned out the position was for a senior. If HR took a bit more time to read up my profiles, they would have known I'm not a senior. Everyone's busy and I felt like they totally wasted my time. Plus, the interview process felt rushed and rude.
