in reply to Would you work at a porn company?

Will there be repercussions? Probably it'll colour some prospective employers' against you (same as if you worked for a spammer; though some people might even consider that much worse :), others may not care one whit. The same with other geeks: some are probably going to look down their nose at you, others may think you've got the coolest job in the world (I can certainly think of some former coworkers that'd fall into the latter category).

As for the working in other countries, only place I could think you could even start looking for an answer to that would be possibly talking to a lawyer specializing in immigration and the like. Or if you've got a specific country in mind try contacting their closest embassy or consulate.

And lastly as for being exposed to the porn, one would think they'd sell that as a fringe benefit (fringe . . . or lace . . . maybe feathers . . . sorry, where was I? :). Would make bringing extra work home with you more attractive.

Would I have considered taking it, probably no. Then again I'm married with young kids. But if it was a choice between slinging pr0n and slinging burgers at Mickey D's, it'd start to look better and better.

    I have been in interviews where the interviewer would put down porn companies, so I see it as a negative repercussion.
