    Pros

    Many inspiring, impassioned people working here albeit under very unfortunate management and CEO. It's a great place to work for some, but heavily dependent on the team. Some teams aren't around the BS. Also, it's a paycheck. And you get insurance & a 401k match.

    Cons

    If you want to kill your creative spirit, work here! They have a terrible reputation locally AND in the industry. If Gaia customers only knew how fraudulent they are, how shady the company is, and how they run their business... All they care about is the bottom line, to profit off the mindful movement. They'll woo you with their mission, management will deliver an inspiring speech, and you'll be enticed to work here because you're "changing the world". But it's one of the least mindful companies out there. Most employees leave on terrible terms. Highlights: Bad energy in office, fear-mongering, "butts in seats" mentality, you will be a puppet, high employee turnover, lots of ego..and for what?, you will probably be fired if you don't believe in conspiracy theories About that lifestyle video they put on here... Basically, the CEO said "make a video asap about how great we are". Nobody wanted to speak in it. It's fake propaganda.

    Pros

    Gaia has a highly inspirational vision and mission. It's a privilege to work with other conscious co-creators, who are really aligned with this mission.

    Cons

    I would've enjoyed more empowerment to implement my ideas, years of knowledge and skill set.

    Pros

    The people you work with on a daily basis are smart, friendly, open, and fun. Lots of great personal relationships built and friends made. We have a great cafe and a full gym. Work life balance is very good. And working on a video streaming platform is a lot more fun that all of the dry fin-tech bs that’s out there.

    Cons

    Executive team is in drastic need of a makeover. Priorities change on an almost weekly basis. Mission and goals are very haphazard. Very waterfall style process where the CEO basically dictates everything rather than allowing the intelligent, experienced people he’s hired to create a more modern, thriving culture and do what they do best. Culture used to be amazing and is virtually non existent today. Very conflicting messages and ideals. Example: employees must be in office - work from home is not allowed and butts must be in seats... except half the engineering team is now contractors they hired overseas because they can’t backfill positions locally. Lots of bs like this going on these days.
