    I worked at MindGeek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sincerely speaking, If you are in a settle down mode and if keeping up with the latest Frontend technology doesn't interest you Mindgeek could be a great place for you. Great company culture. Great team mates. 35'ish work hours a week. Breakfast, gym + many other perks.

    Cons

    The culture is really great, so it's easy to fall victim to the golden handcuffs and miss out on keeping your career profile (frontend) up to date due to their very out of date tech stack. You will fall behind in the frontend world which will hurt you to find other opportunities. Your title will be Frontend developer but 80% of the time you are doing design integration and SEO stuff, the other 20% is vanilla javascript, no modern libraries. The site I worked on had a lot of technical debt so I spent a lot of time digging through spaghetti code rather than working on new features & there is always no time allocated to refactoring. Projects can be badly organized at times with very poor analysis and vision, which then turn into long and painful projects. Lastly, no work from home, you will be asked to just take a sick day should you have to work from home one day.

    Fast paced environment, if the worker works hard to excel they can be promoted relatively quickly.

    "Amateur Hour"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Photo Editor 

    I worked at MindGeek full-time

    Pros

    Full benefits and perk package

    Cons

    Abusive, ill-informed management resulting from an entrenched culture that promotes people without leadership skills up the corporate chain; high turnover rate that leaves the company chronically understaffed and produces enormous workloads and stress for current employees; morally repugnant business practices with regard to production, personnel, and competition; ugly logo, mindless product.
