    Hi, We appreciate reviews, even if they are negative. They play a vital role and help us to improve. We’d like to comment on your review, because we believe that it does not represent reality. We are proud to have a very diverse workforce and not only young and fun-loving people (but I admit that most of us like to have fun at work as well). To describe our daily work as “soul crushing drudgery” seems also very strong. We protect users in the online world from various threats daily, so one could argue that the job is meaningful. We usually work 40 hours per week with daily break times that are far above the legal minimum requirements. Nevertheless, we wish you all the best in your further career! Kind regards Malta Team
