I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Let's get real...people complaining on this site are disgruntled folks who feel they should be given everything without earning it! They compare this company to the Big Dogs (Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc.), but FFN can't run with the Big Dogs because it's a different breed altogether! The company provides more in fringe benefits than other companies this size: anniversary bonuses, a 401(k) match, a PTO program that blows others out of the water (20 days/25 days/30 days -- depending how many years you've been with the company). A majority of companies start you off with 2 weeks, and one review on this site is wanting to go back to separate vacation and sick leave! Does he not get it?!
A big pro is that both Marc Bell and Dan Staton are no longer associated with this company! They were the most arrogant pair who didn't care about the employees and we didn't care about them. They were an embarrassment.
This company is going through a transition. Andrew Conru has returned and has started to breathe new life into the company, but we're all still cautious. Most important, though, is we now have hope.
So, people should stop bitching because we do have it pretty good here. We're being paid to produce good work, so step it up if you're dawdling around mediocrity! And to all the former employees who produced less but felt entitled to more, who didn't like the food, the management, their salaries . . . good riddance!Cons
Mid-level managers need more training. I've asked my own manager questions only to realize later that he steered me down the wrong path! Also, there are department heads who need to be replaced as they don't seem to contribute anything -- it's so well-known that people from different departments chat about it during lunch. It's an ongoing joke.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Communicate with the staff and make it clear to us what the culture of the company is, especially with the changes taking place. There's an opportunity to get it right this time.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
