    I have been working at Prodigy Game full-time

    Pros

    Work balance Give you food (snacks and even random meals here and there, also breakfast they provide) Employees are super down to earth and friendly. Everyone knows they are here to work and no need to gossiping or bad atmosphere. Management is great as well! They have good benefits and other perk (staff events).

    Cons

    None really. You just have to do your job, slacking off won’t help you at all.

    Advice to Management

    Older managers could really learn a lot from other newer managers so reach out to them and hear their ideas. They could shed some light onto what you have been racking your brain over!

    Pros

    There are many pros to working at Prodigy. 1. Great mission! To help enable every child in the world to love learning. It's not "make the most money" or "be the best at...", it's all about the children and helping them to love learning. Awesome! 2. The People. I have yet to run into 'that guy', and I don't think there is one here. They take their hiring process very seriously, with a technical and a cultural interview,...

    Cons

    Right now, because of the growth, we are spread out within the building so it makes it difficult to bond with people on different floors. But this is just a short term problem, everything else is GREAT.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work communicating and being transparent with everyone.

    I worked at Prodigy Game full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Amazing product that is making a difference in education - Great office perks - Gym and Learning fund - Rapid growth - Great team members - Stock options

    Cons

    - Inexperienced senior leadership that at times lacks emotional intelligence (they are starting to use recruiting firms to help recruit more experienced leaders) - Company has lost great employees due to instances of a lack of coaching, a clear career path and underpay (mainly employees who have worked at the company over 12-18+ months). - Radical candor is great if it is accepted by both direct reports AND senior...

    Advice to Management

    Take care of everyone who help get you where you are. All the positive PR in the world doesn't mean anything if you don't actually practice what you preach. I'm cautiously optimistic that hiring more experienced senior leadership (and listening to them) will lead to greater success and more positive review by both new hires and previous employees.

    Hi there! Thank you for this very fair feedback. Many of the issues you’ve flagged, such as lack of coaching and poor reception to constructive criticism, are issues that have been brought up to People Ops in the past. But the more frequently they’re identified by team members ...

    I have been working at Prodigy Game full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + I've not met a single employee that I don't get along with. Everyone is incredibly kind and wonderful to be around. + Company values feedback and works to improve. They listen to their employees concerns and needs and work to address them to the best of their ability. + Generous vacation/sick day policy. + Fair health benefits (though could use better dental coverage) + Great work environment (very generous...

    Cons

    - On the product side, more focus needs to be put on iteration and less on meeting OKRs. - Public Transit in the area is brutal (but that's less the fault of the company, and more so just the downfall of being in Burlington rather than closer to Toronto - if you're not living in Burlington itself, a car might be the best option for transit) - Growing without adequate space. It's getting harder and harder to find...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work of taking criticism and learning from it, whether it be from your newest employees or your oldest. Additionally, spend time and resources on making the product the best it can be, and encourage more communication between different parts of the company.
