    I have been working at MindGeek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Easy job, all API and framework based. - Work/Life Balance is phenomenal, no one expects you to do work after 4. - Very chill environment and very cool people. Lax. - Insane job security, the market will never die. - Free breakfast, 500$ Gym, 2000$ credit on courses (all tax deductions for the company so it's not like it's out of their pockets)

    Cons

    - Garbage raises, barely above inflation rate and low salaries. Probably the lowest I've ever seen for such a lucrative company. - No Christmas Bonuses, they organize some insignificant Christmas party instead where the best you can get as a "prize" is a cheap 400$ TV (1 for the whole company tombola btw). Engineering Christmas bonuses are 3000$+. They're doing this to cheap out. - This is not a job for people with high drive, HUGE turnover, everyone worth a anything quits. This is why most people are very young. It's a place to get some experience and quit afterwards. - No RRSP. The CEO is so cheap he stopped doing LIVE questions because he couldn't answer the lack of RRSP. Kind of repulsive considering all he opens his mouth about is how much money they made while he parks his lambo right next to the office. - Initiative is punishable. Doing more work than expected will not be rewarded, they'll just put more on your shoulders and pay you the same. Do the least amount of work possible. It's extremely hard to get fired and you won't get a good raise anyways.
