    I have been working at Mind Candy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mind Candy has given me a chance to really improve my abilities and learn a huge amount. If you're in the right team, then the opportunity to really get stuck in with lots of things is there.

    Hands down though, the people are the best thing about the company. Many of them are amazingly talented, really friendly, ready to teach you and always happy to tell you about what they're doing. They're really sociable and are the primary reason that I'm still at the company.

    Cons

    The working atmosphere is becoming more toxic by the day. It used to be great, but has been going steadily down hill for a while.

    Management has directly stated multiple times that they don't believe in "work life balance" and this is seen in the way that some of the product teams are expected to work long hours, denied time off, and berated or fired when they push back.

    There have been a few instances of people being let go for being disruptive or negative when they speak out, and this does nothing except help foster a general feeling of fear.

    Management spends a lot of time talking about the company values and how important they are, but having a set of principles does nothing if actions aren't taken to back them up.

    Ultimately, management don't seem to trust the talented people working under them, causing teams to feel that their work isn't important, but get annoyed if people don't have required level of passion. They spin lines about wanting smart, creative, interesting individuals with great ideas, but these days it feels like they just want people to get the work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to people, stop pretending everything is ok, and treat people with more respect. It's fine to want people who are invested in the company, but telling people that means working long hours is unfair and disrespectful
