Horrible management, tried to bring it up with HR and was ignored. Me and another coworker from my department “failed” our probation over a petty supervisor. Unfortunate since I really did like the job. If you apply here just remember that mindgeek is still a corporation...
Depending on the department you work in, your experience will vary greatly. If you have a good leader and team, it's possible to have a good experience working there. If not, the environment is cold and can be hostile, they take themselves and the business overly seriously compared to their human capital, ultimately treating you like a number despite not being a huge company.
work/life balance, low pay, questionable ethics, do not operate in good faith
If it's ok for you to be a part of the adult entertainment industry and see naked bodies on the screen all day long, there is nothing that can stop me from recommending to work for them. Great people, great corporate culture, wonderful work/life balance (35 hour week at the location in Montreal). Weird, but I felt proud for the company. Again, the people I worked with are absolutely great.Also, learnt A LOT on the job.
free breakfast, company events, 35 hour week, great people
adult content takes time to get used to
I was security for the owners of the company, to be clear. I did not actually work for, or within, the company.
As shadow security, I had to follow the owners around and ensure that they were always safe and protected. When they were asleep, I was in charge of protecting the building of offices. It was a slow paced environment, only because I was highly trained and prepared.
Pay, versatility, fulfilling
Long hours, danger
This company wants you to be there slaves. They don’t care what the make the employees endure. Literally the worst company I’ve worked for. Extremely stressful and inhuman HR. If you start in billing they only see you as peasants. You will never get out of there. They don’t pay well, but other departments have a collection of exotic cars they make growl in the basement garage and you can’t even hear your costumes on the phone .
Partisanship is a huge factor in their culture, especially in advancing into a higher role. The tone of the environment can be stressful and appears as they do not care about your well being. Hires only by referrals. The benefits and perks are good, not that great. If hired take the job for a year then move on.
If I say too much they'll send people after me lol. Jokes aside, MindGeek is a chill place to work at... if you keep your head LOW. Play the game the way they tell you to and MindGeek can be a great career springboard for developers. The "adult" aspect of the company is taken with respect mostly and does add some trill to the job, no puns intended. That said, the culture also has a dark side. There seems to have been a top-down "clean-up" done recently, possibly to remedy that very issue. Ask around past employees and you will hear of incidents which should never happen under any circumstance... people "told" to "obey" - or else... Like I mentioned, I believe that group of bad apples are no longer there. Don't let this review turn you off to MindGeek especially if you are a junior developer looking to progress. MindGeek does a lot for it's employees. It's fun work environment is worth the experience.
I was still in probation and was top three sellers out of my training group yet AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY ON MY BIRTHDAY they pull me aside out of the coat check line and fire me. Saying I didint meet company standard?? Even though many other people who were hired at the same time had significantly worse performance. It was just to scare the other workers into preforming better. I was also told by some of the employees that the sales coach went around bragging how he was the one who pushed to get me fired because he didint like me . The whole situation was disgustingly unprofessional and I was felt with in a really cold manner it’s sad because I did enjoy working there but what kind of company treats a good employee like that?
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
The culture is really great .. bigs partys, they give a lot to their employees. People are really friendly! The only downside are the salaries are a little bit low , 2 weeks vacations ,and they dont have teleworks ( probably wont have it any time soon)
It's fine, the work sometimes gets odd. A lot of bad organization within the teams, odd delays and somewhat bad communication within co-workers. A lot of the people working don't have any video editing experience or haven't used Premiere at all, which made the task of reviewing for QC a bit tricky for some issues.
Breakfast every morning, free
Bad organization and odd hiring process for other teams
Not the best in terms of salary, constantly letting staff go and hiring for cheaper. Employees and staff parties are the best part of mindgeek. I did manage to learn new programs such as after effects, I trained with some very talented employees and learnt a lot. Work load can get hectic at times but always manageable.
i worked here for over 2 years as a sales agent, and through out this time a lot change in the company. management doesnt really care for the coworkers environment only focus on the $$. the turnover rate at his place is ridiculously high.
Worked there for 3 years, in the beginning it was an amazing work place with a ton of benefits. As the years went by everything started to decline from the benefits to co workers. They decreased the starting wage in the customer care department which resulted in way too many bad hires. They also turned customer care into this sales driven environment which isn't a bad thing when your agents are being compensated appropriately. The cut out many positions which minimized opportunity for advancement. Nepotism and favoritism. POC's do not advance as quickly as others.
As long as you look a little into what kind of websites Mindgeek owns and you're okay with that, it's a great place to work at. Lots of promotion opportunities both in and out of your original hiring department. Free coffee, building placement is decent (near metro and decarie). Lots of parties and perks for employees. Great place overall.
Comission, parties, great location and environment
Low starting salary outweighed by comission.
