After almost 7 years at Mindgeek, I have made friends that will stay with my my entire life. It's a community of like-minded, heard working people that encourages growth, both personal and professional. I have never had a job with more perks.
mindgeek is a great place to work if you want to be relaxed and have fun. everyone is super nice. where they lack is moving up, it takes a really long time. salary is meh...you really have to ask for it in order for it to be given to you.. over all its a great place to start and gain experience, but dont expect to retire here.
free breakfast everyday, parties, random 5 a 7 and lunches
Poorly managed business model with zero regard for product, or employee satisfaction
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 29 August 2016
The initial company was built on a sound platform; product centric with an arsenal of competitive products working in unison to deliver new and exciting technologies. Today's MindGeek is far devoid from this, rather it is run by a roster of nepotist executives who rely too heavily on lower level, underpaid employees to make strategic decisions with very little praise and very little reassurance. Plagued by employee turn over, poorly managed business units (often a result of nepotism) and a loss of identity (no longer product centric), MindGeek is becoming its own worst enemy, and is beginning to succumb to the realization that money and greed over identity is not always the answer.
Has the potential to be great, but requires a great deal of attention from management.
Billing Support Ageny (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 31 May 2016
I am no less than impressed with this company. While results are expected (retention, adherence, attendance-- all more than reasonable things), the management and co-workers still maintain an easy going and cool vibe. Free breakfast is there and waiting when you arrive in the morning, and free coffee all day. There are great benefits and awesome perks (money savings at local restaurants and stores). I love going to work since working with MindGeek.
Free breakfast, free coffee, motivating employees, close to public transport.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 20 April 2016
The team in Customer Care is extremely helpful and want the best for the department. I have never been a part of the such a dedicated Call Center culture. They have so many resources from helpful management, and team leads, to HR and WFM. Everyone is great. If you dont do your job or are constantly absent, then yes you will have notes on file but any company has the same expectations. Its a job and we have a role to fill. I am so fortunate to be a part of the MindGeek experience. Dont read the negative comments here, those are disgruntled employees who dont know what the 'real world' is like in a professional environment.
Negativity from employees who dont get what they want
Assistant Video Editor (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 12 April 2016
During my time with MindGeek I have become proficient with various digital media products such as Adobe-Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. I understand the workflow of creating digital media and have been a part of creating many different types of trailers, promos, and advertisements. I have also been involved with producing independent short-films and documentaries. While at MindGeek I was also introduced and become familiar with services like Google Analytics.
Senior Media Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 14 March 2016
A good place to work. There are flexible hours,and management is very open minded. However there is a 3 month probation when you are promoted.So you don't get compensated for your work until 3 months in.
customer service retention (Former Employee) – 7777 Blvd Décarie, Montreal, QC – 5 January 2016
They dont pay the Retention team well. all the big bosses that manages the departments are clowns. My reason that I lost my Job wasnt the one that was written... Also HR get invovled in a department that has nothing to do with the rest of the compnay, they will re-hire or hire out side the compnay to have everyone at minimum waige. If you go to billing support and do well they will find a way to get you a warning (deciplenary measure) so that your stuck there for 6 month and will carry that trough out every 6 months. Your on your own even the managers dont want to help I dont want anyone else to go though everything they promis and dont allow you to get out. Once sur in billing you will be stuck there.....
Billings is the worse job you can have there...
They have big benifits, you will make so little money you sont get to use them tough.
Retention, customer service. is worse then picking up garbage on the side of the street.
I can come in any time between 7:00am and 10:30 am. We enjoy free breakfasts and coffee. We can usually work at a comfortable pace. We take part in our scrums then resume our duties for the day. We are frequently introduced to new technologies. There's a mandatory 1 hour lunch break. Leave any time between 4:00pm and 6:30pm (or later if needed).
The skill of Management changes drastically between teams. The hardest part of the job is dealing with inaccurate estimates for projects.
Overall a very good place as long as you don't get caught up in politics but compensation could be better.
Fun people, relaxed atmosphere, 35 hour work weeks, Free breakfast, Health benefits, Fitness budget, Discounts with nearby businesses, Flex hours, Cafeteria, Kitchens on each floor
Dramatic salary ranges between employees, frequent exposure to adult content, no RSVP benefits
Senior Research Analyst / Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 17 August 2015
Une journée de travail consiste pour moi à extraire des données et analyser les impacts survenus suite aux modifications des prix sur les produits ou prévoir les revenus à générer pour un mois/semestre. Analyser l'impact de lancement d'un nouveau produit et les campagnes marketing pour une meilleure optimisation des promotions. Mon manager est orienté résultat. Lui comme moi, considérons le traitement des données comme un aspect important dans l'aide à la décision. Bien que ce soit l’élément qui prend plus de temps, je considère le traitement de données comme l'aspect le plus passionnant d'un analyste car c'est l'étape qui te permet d'avoir une compréhension globale de la problématique. L'aspect le plus difficile de mon poste survient quand je suis en situation où je dois fournir des estimations/prévisions sur un scénario où je n'ai pas assez de données ou information. Mon équipe est composée de 5 membres et nous sommes tous des Analystes de Recherche et travaillons dans un environnement agréable.
