Chef d'équipe (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 26 March 2018
MindGeek represents everything that is wrong with a corporate company. Higher-ups make insane salaries compared to entry-level employees and your education does not matter, everyone starts at the same level unless you are friends with some higher-ups. They will mask terrible salaries with goodies on the side and will highly recommend speaking about raises, but then never follow through or give some inadequate reason as to why you are not receiving it. The only good thing about this company is the people, but these good people are driven away by the unfairness and hypocrisy that the company seems to thrive on.
Free breakfast, fantastic co-workers
Nepotism, bro-culture, hypocrisy, not competitive salaries, terrible management, low incentives, HR never helps, retention
Analyst (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 21 February 2018
Yes, MindGeek offers free breakfast and lots of parties, however, those types of benefits are not worth it.
Very cut throat environment with no job security and very strict hierarchy . The fear of losing your job is a daily struggle, people drop like flies.
It is a great company if you are a "yes" person and always have your head down with no ambition. Otherwise, you will be bullied and forced out. Sadly the HR department is there to plan parties and help directors, they are not there for employees.
It's a good place to learn some skills which you can take to other companies where you will be able to grow and be better treated.
free breakfast, parties
bullying, no support, bad management, no loyalty, ambition is frowned upon
Video Editor (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 March 2018
Mind Geek was a pleasant place to work, with many benefits and respect for their employees. They were flexible and accommodating when needed. Unfortunately my department was terminated, at no fault of my team. The company decided to no longer continue the site
Chance to work with talented people -Great office vibe and culture -Not many companies are of this scale that offers you vast experience in your field -Flexible working hours plus we only work 35 hours per week -Good communication with upper management
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.
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
After 5 years at MindGeek and multiple teams, I can say that I was able to grow my career within the company. There are so many opportunities for improvement and advancement. You just have to be looking for them, and pushing the right people.
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.
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
Fun place to work, free breakfast every morning and once a month lunch
Sr. Web Developer/Designer (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 3 October 2017
Overall a decent place to work as long as it's viewed as a stepping stone and not a career. I overstayed my welcome I guess after 10+ years with them with a poor excuse as to why I no longer fit the bill.
Free Lunch, breakfast and great parties
Terrible management from the top down and absolutely no loyalty.
WEB Developer - Team Lead Developer (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 13 January 2015
Great place to work in a lot of opportunities to grow technically and personally (based on own experience where I start with my management experience). Agile driven development, great colleges - smart creatives. Definitely a good place for juniors who are looking to jump start and make a leap advancement in their carriers. Management is always looking howto to improve working environment and provide better mechanism for feedback. There is no hardest part of the job for those who are responsible and committed to success of the project they are working on. The most enjoyable part of the day is when production release is went through on time and without any downturn. A lot of perks at company tennis and pool tables, foosball tables, TVs, big cafeteria, video games and etc. Flexible time at place with summer hours allowance.
