    I worked at MindGeek full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at MindGeek for 3 years. Honestly, one of the best places I ever worked in my whole life. I know the departments are different and the management styles may vary, but if you are going to SEO, you are going to have a damn good time!
    The management at all levels is really great. And I mean it. They give you a lot of autonomy to test your ideas and learning is constantly encouraged. I felt recognized and there was room to grow. The teammates are really nice people too, and I built some friendships there that will last for life.

    The company itself is very chill, you will be able to keep a very nice work/life balance. Parties are awesome, perks are awesome, but really, people there are the best part. Everyone was nice and kind, trying to do their best every day.
    If you are willing to work hard and put love in what you are doing, this is the company.

    Cons

    I wish we had summer hours all year xD

    Advice to Management

    The communication could be improved a bit. Sometimes it feels different departments are trying to go to different directions.

    I have been working at MindGeek (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Low stress but a high capacity for growth- there's always something to do and there is an encouragement to take on new projects, but there is very little pressure to push yourself to complete these things. I find this relaxed approach makes me more productive.
    -Very kind, uplifting coworkers! The culture here is very welcoming and positive.
    -Flex hours have changed my life and given me such a sense of relief that I can balance other things that I have to deal with. I never thought this freedom could be possible!
    -Every day there's something new to learn, and although the content can be intense sometimes, it definitely makes for a hilarious work day most of the time.
    -So much coffee. So good.
    -It's interesting to be able to work with so much data and in an industry that is always shifting- I always feel like I'm learning, even when I become comfortable with concepts.

    Cons

    -Lots of free food- but healthier/vegan options are usually lacking.
    -Could use an exercise area or even a room to stretch in- 7 hour days in a chair is tough on the body!

    Advice to Management

    -Having some opportunities to grow in other departments and areas would really encourage sharing of ideas and greater growth potential.

    -Would be interesting to have more networking or inter-department communication that is not centered around partying- would love more workshops, 'show and tell' type presentations, or rapid networking events that I've experienced in other tech companies. I could see a lot of great things happening in the company if we had more inter-department networking, communication, and idea sharing on a regular, casual level.

    Pros

    Relaxed Atmosphere. They spend on employee benefits.

    Cons

    Not enough communication between departments. Could be more on the forefront on technology but as a quasi-monopoly in the industry I feel as if it rests a little too much on its market power - that or I am not informed of the projects I should be aware of.

    Pros

    Mindgeek is a great place to work while learning many aspects of Internet Marketing. The focus and support for employee development is above average with numerous incentives to gain new skills that will help employees move up within the ranks rather than look elsewhere.

    Cons

    There are a lot of opportunities to grow your knowledge and it would be also great to have ability to do some external training.
