    I have been working at Miniclip full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Miniclip is an excellent environment to work at. There is so much talent and the company is always looking for that one fit. During the interview process, the company is not looking for the genius that can take the company to the next level but instead a candidate who is capable of getting the job done as well as fitting into the Miniclip Spirit (Work hard, play hard). The offices are accommodated in a way that... makes you want to be there every day.

    Cons

    It needs to be a bit more organized how it handles projects and prioritizing. There is always a time where there were goals but not clear path to them. Having multiple offices across the world, communication was a bit of an issue but it has become better throughout the years.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize things better. Employee Bonuses even when there are financial difficulties. Company should have a reserve to keep satisfying the employees with yearly bonuses.

    Former Employee - 2D Artist 

    I worked at Miniclip full-time

    Pros

    Solid company, lot of benefits (annual bonus, free drinks, fruits and snacks...) and care of the employee's well-being.

    Cons

    If you are an artist who want to be "free" in your work, maybe that's not the right place for you. I mean, you could grow up and reach highgoals, but you won't go above a certain level.

    (Translated from English)

    I have been working at Miniclip full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    "L'ambiente è positivo e la squadra ha un legame forte, il carico di lavoro è gestibile e lo stipendio non è male"

    Cons

    "Il lavoro è ripetitivo, i compiti sempre gli stessi e le scadenze obbligano tutti a rifare le stesse cose all'infinito. Attualmente anche le possibilità di miglioramento e sviluppo personale sono scarse"

    Advice to Management

    "Tutti i bonus e l'ambiente positivo sono fantastici, ma l'impossibilità di miglioramento e sviluppo per sviluppatori, artisti e chiunque partecipi al progetto, fa sì che le persone cerchino opportunità diverse"

    I have been working at Miniclip full-time

    Pros

    good benefits, fun place to work, full kitchen, great co workers. I have a great leader, I feel I can trust him. People are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    I would say the only con is the current situation portugal is living now. Rents are top high, salary is not enough. So if you are thinking on come to miniclip, take care and calculate your salary correctly. Do not do it like me, I trusted it would be fine, but I had quite a hard time since I arrived, financially speaking.

    Advice to Management

    Management: you are doing a nice job. HR: please share liquid salary with newcomers. Do not just send the liquid salary calculator, its not even close to accurate for immigrants.

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

    Pros

    It is a very stable job, almost everyone that leaves the company, leaves by themselves. You have the opportunity to work on popular web and mobile games with awesome professionals. It is an amazing place to learn.

    Cons

    If you want to grow in the industry, Miniclip might get short for you, even in the mobile games industry. There are some processes in the company workflow that complicate things too much. Although it is a games company, you don't feel that all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Try to better embrace a games company culture. Innovate more, like Miniclip did before.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Miniclip for more than a year

    Pros

    There is really nothing positive in this London office besides earning enough money to survive and not starve.

    Cons

    Extremely bad salaries, only the excecutives get great salaries and bonuses Bad management and you can see the division between ranks Bad office culture

    Advice to Management

    Fire current management and hire people who know how to MANAGE. Start over
