    I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -my job description was accurate and I actually enjoy it most of the time
    -management is reasonable
    -flex hours
    -coworkers are kind, open-minded and competent. Generally helpful, too.
    -if there's politics I'm kept out of it
    -LGBT friendly. Nice for those of us who aren't, too, btw.

    Cons

    -the porn is not my favorite, and it IS part of the job.
    -working from home rarely and by exception
    -commute
    -sick time and vacation time from the same pool. If you get bronchitis, you lose vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -revise vacation/sick time policy.
    -allow employees to work from home one day or even half a day a week, as long as we don't have meetings. Or even on designated spare-the-air days. Or on condition that we work half our normal commute time extra.

    Pros

    THe work here was very challenging. Most of the people are smart and we got roo. To experiment with things on a very large scale

    Cons

    THe work here was very challenging. Sometimes it feels like we were overworked compared to others but I think that's because it lost it's startup mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A clearer idea of company goals needs to be communicated better. More time off needs to be given to be competitive

    If the company can match the salary level on the market, that will put the company to be one of the best companies to work in bay area.

    Pros

    Competitive paid and good benefits. Casual work environment. Good people to be around with. Very appreciative of new Hirers with good welcome lunch. Room for advancement and career growth.

    Cons

    Not enough Paid Time OFF. OK medical Insurance for employees with family, no options to choose from. Company stock is not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Agile development. Slow down a bit with feature release. Try to keep feature request and design before development begins if possible.

    Pros

    At FriendFinder, there are lots of opportunities to grow. Once in the company, people can move from one department to another to acquire new skills or improve on existing skills. Its easy to move around once you get your foot in the door.

    The people here are cool, very knowledgeable and helpful. Managers are easy to talk to and want their employees to grow and improve.

    We get catered lunches Monday - Thursday, and go out for monthly team lunches .

    Cons

    Still a young company going through the pains of growing up (e.g. some of the negative remarks about management in previous reviews). However, things are much better now than they were a few years ago. More processes are in place and are continually changing for the better.
