    I worked at Mind Candy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great product(s), great people, fantastic office and atmosphere. A lot of room to grow and people to encourage grow. Overall I feel it was one of the best companies I worked for.

    Cons

    I don't really see any cons - it's like every other company - the are better times and worse times - good hires - bad hires - good decisions - bad decisions; MC was a roller-coaster across all of these.

    I worked at Mind Candy full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment - Excellent tech - Staff Lunch most Fridays - Good location and social activites

    Cons

    The Good - When in their Battersea they were young and vibrant and about 30 staff who were all great to work with The Bad - Moved to the Tea building and staff increased to about 100 in no time. Then there was a mention of the subscription number being poor with a concerned look so something was not good. The Ugly - Staff being fired almost weekly - Really bad hires - A clique formed and if you weren't part of it you were on your own. Then the redundancies came - I knew my time was up at one of the stages - Got a decent pay off and bought shares - doubt they are worth what I paid for them. I was there for 3 years - By year 2 I was sailing a sinking ship. A great shame for something that started out so great
