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

    Pros

    -People: The people here are the best. By best, I mean the rank and file.
    -Pay: People are paid fairly. Compensation is fairly high
    -Office: The office is nice.

    Cons

    -Management: Management has no clue about anything. They should fire the entire senior staff. There was a time when things were good and they could be better.

    Pretty directionless

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at IAC

    Pros

    Good bonus program, solid 401K, Reasonably decent office supplies, free snacks in some offices

    Cons

    Erratic leadership, still operates very much like a holding company, seems most concerned with leveraging their roster of companies to help shore up their online dating group vs offer compelling services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop collecting dead brands and invest in building useful services instead

    Large company/small company dichotomy is great; Health coverage is comparatively bad

    I have been working at IAC full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the model of a large company which owns several small companies (one of which, I work for) because you get the small company feel with the big company security.

    Cons

    If you're not on the west coast IAC's Aetna PPO is pretty horrible compared to others in the same industry. $300 deductible and 15% coinsurance! I've never before had a deductible or coinsurance under any company-provided health insurance in my long carrer. This is something you should strongly consider when making the decision to work for an IAC company if you will not be based on the west coast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simple: give us a better health insurance option.

    Pros

    Nice people, decent benefits and hours, ok pay

    Cons

    Its a tough deal if you are signing on contractors to the network - you can expect to be hearing back from them ... outraged about the quality of the "leads" you are selling them. They sell a lot of bogus leads.

    Review of IAC (Located in Chelsea Piers on the west side of Manhattan)

    Former Employee - Staff Accountant in New York, NY

    I worked at IAC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work/life is highly valued at the company. Happy hours every two weeks are nice too. The employees are extremely friendly, and it has a very diverse group of people. They also throw an amazing Christmas party, and the building is really cool.

    Cons

    Location in Chelsea Piers is highly inaccessible. Living outside of the city makes the commute a hell. Bad weather will ruin your already miserable commute.
