    I worked at Mindspark Interactive Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Fantastic work/life balance
    -Really nice perks for employees; free snacks, drinks, breakfast and occasional free lunches
    -Trendy new office space (although it's in Yonkers)

    Cons

    I was surprised that my opinions match a lot of other reviews.
    -Very political
    -I saw a great post by another user.....power is very concentrated at the top.
    -People are concerned with making themselves look good rather than doing a good job
    -Definitely a "Good 'Ol Boy" environment at the executive level
    -I saw other reviews had this same analogy....employees are treated as pawns. Your career objective isn't really left in your hands. You're put wherever management wants to plug a hole.
    -Products aren't that innovative....or profitable, Mindspark hasn't developed a profitable product line in many years, just rebranding their already existing products. Many many failed attempts
    -Only a small percentage of people will grow with the company, those that brown nose and commit endless hours
    -Red tape no matter what you do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think this section is meant for executive management to truly take the advice into consideration......I won't waste my time filling this out.
