    Pros

    Lots of smart people, unfortunately most of them are doing the business logic. Lots of perks and benefits though, it's a great place to coast, no matter where you are, if that's your thing. Standard startup perks like food.

    Cons

    While it's impressive that they've done it, nearly everything is built from scratch—even server-side scripting—so you may find yourself contributing more to the product than your own career, if you're not on the core site team. You're going to be knee-deep in proprietary stuff. It's also not a very conducive environment for new ideas and improvements, there is very much an established Right Way to Do Things already.

    Also, the build process is an absolute mess, and there is no QA to speak of. If you ship a bug, you are informed by a user complaint, followed by a sigh and/or smirk from your boss; finally it takes thirty minutes to push out your update after you literally increment cachebusting parameters by hand in all your files, among many other todos that you probably will have to write down. Many talented developers exist at OkCupid, but again, they are in very specific departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to gather ideas for improvements and new features from your employees.
