    I have been working at Mind Candy full-time


    Smartest and most creative people I have ever worked with. Everyone is keen to continuously learn, share and improve. And the most friendly and social work place ever.

    The company has little bureaucracy that gets in the way and uses best of available tech and tools, and if not quickly changes so that they do.

    Free snacks and drinks but that is limited to mostly coffee now. Big communal kitchen table where everyone used to mix and eat lunch together which created a great culture and knowledge share, although now people mostly eat at their desk as too busy.

    Has always been able to recruit good people and salaries are very good.


    There are reasons that this company has a higher turn over of staff than a call centre.

    Benefits are non existent. 5 to 8 days less holiday than with competitors. Pensions are not offered.

    Whilst senior management do try to communicate openly, they do make some awful decisions, and in the last few years have hired only Silicon Valley background senior managers with similar bad traits and drastically changed the company culture.

    The company struggle to be agile or lean, with a lot of micro management, big teams and knee jerk copycat change of directions often mid sprints.

    The new culture of frequent prolonged crunch mode has resulted in low quality software and bad company vibe. Partly due to unrealistic hard deadlines pulled out of a woolly hat. A fear of failure postpones or cancels most releases.

    - Embrace failure. Release early. Learn, iterate and move on.
