    Pros

    Great insurance benefits, perks(gym allocation, study subsidy, discounts, annual bbq , flex schedule), free breakfast monday to friday and annual bonuses.

    Cons

    Not opened to work remotely, vacation weeks are limited, salaries and bonuses are capped to companies performance undermining employees dedication, RRSP contribution not matched by the employer, no Christmas bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Management are already aware of the pros and cons of the company. Many of the commented points were already brought to their knowledge and I believe they will act on a solution to improve them.

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

    Pros

    When the economy gets bad, this product stays afloat. If you don't have a lot of experience and are looking for a chance, they hire a lot of newbies. The low-level people that work with the content and/or develop the sites are all professional and majority are kind.

    Cons

    Politics - No, really. There's a ton of politics at the director-level and above. One would think that they would concern themselves, mainly, with their business, but there are a handful that go to great lengths to protect their bros even when in the wrong.
