    Very little internal training. Could offer more transparency in how promotions works.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great talents. Very fun product. Always a conversation starter with new (and sometimes old) friends. And they had a free shuttle for people who lived near Pasadena, CA (office is in Santa Monica)

    Cons

    Not easy to introduce new ideas and innovation to their way of doing things. Many of their teams (Tech, Product, Risk and Marketing) went through a lot of recent changes and turnovers. By the time I quit, a lot of people were leaving due to poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Commonsense. Flexibility. Encourage a trust based work environment. Give your talents the tools and freedom to excel in their roles instead of imposing limitations and micromanaging them.

    Pros

    The benefits are very good. The company also promotes a green environment so that we reduce our print in the environment.

    Cons

    Depending on the department you work, you don't get to enjoy the holidays as much as other departments. Work can be a little overwhelming which can be disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    There should be constant training regarding certain trends of online dating. Invest in more activities that promote interaction between different departments.

    Pros

    The company's mission, the work environment, the work staff,

    Cons

    The location is in the middle of one of the most congested areas in Los Angeles, which makes the commute, even for those who live close, long and arduous

    Pros

    Great overall atmosphere. My bosses were friendly, available, and supportive. Everyone worked hard, but the environment was very positive

    Cons

    I didn't see a lot of opportunity for personal advancement. I was there before a big layoff. (Was laid off.) The management is currently completely different from my tenure.
