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.
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
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
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
Manager (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 20 October 2017
A fast paced environment where you have the opportunity to learn so much and gain experience. The ability to learn how all departments contribute to the company's success. MindGeek offers many fun activities to get everyone together.
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.
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.
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
