    fun, lively atmosphere.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEveryone at IAC is extremely dedicated to their work ethic. The atmosphere is fun!

    ConsThe only con is that you might be eating a lot of junk food, as they have an awesome kitchen packed with snacks.

    The opportunities at IAC are amazing.

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsExposure to many brands and business models. Constant opportunity to learn and advance. You're never bored. Highly intelligent and experienced execs.

    ConsThere's some degree of hubris because people are in close proximity to the star power of Barry Diller, but it's manageable and nothing more than at any other public company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work.

    Love coming to work every day

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI really do love coming to work every day. Great people, good benefits, and the most beautiful building in Chelsea! Perks include: endless amount of free snacks, coffee, soda, juices, etc., bring your dog to work day, free bikes, a locker room with showers, parties and happy hours.

    Yes, it's a little far from the subway, but it's such a fun area!

    The company has a great reputation and offers career growth - most people stay here for a while.

    ConsHard to think of any. Since the building is shared by several IAC companies, I wish there was more communication between all the different business units.

    Love working here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros-Beautiful offices with great perks
    -Feels like a startup, with all the benefits of a big company - the best of both worlds really..
    -Good work-life balance.
    -The IAC building hosts several IAC businesses (Vimeo, CollegeHumor, The Daily Beast etc.), which means that you get to run into and work with some amazing people.

    Cons-Location - only 3 subway lines, and even those are a 15-min walk
    -Does feel a little too corporate at times, even if you work for one of the smaller businesses (everyone answers to IAC Corporate at the end of the day)
    -Considering how much money Mr. Diller spends on look and feel, he could invest more into health benefits to keep his employees happy. The plans they offer are all expensive and not that great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBy focusing on the big picture, you often miss the details. Talk more to middle management to learn what the real needs of individual employees and departments are.

    Fun, young, and nurturing

    Executive Assistant (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThey really appreciate their employees and everyone is more like family than coworkers. Things are pretty casual at work, but still professional. A lot of employees are young and so the atmosphere is oftentimes pretty relaxed. They generously acknowledge and reward hard work.

    Consvacation days are pretty limited. 10 days a year, but that's pretty standard in new york city.

    Executive Assistant

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThere was a great work/life balance and true feeling of appreciation for employees. Seemless communication across all departments/levels of seniority.

    ConsThere was a hiring freeze while I was employed, making it hard for me to stay within the company, though I really wanted to.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
