I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Myself and a quite a few others have been here several years. There are some that have left and come back - I see that as a testament to the quality of the workplace. I'm challenged here every day. If you put yourself out there and really do 110% you will be rewarded, but you are not rewarded just for showing up like at some other companies where I have worked.

Cons

The sick days are from the same pool as PTO. This leads to people coming in sick often which is pretty bad, it gets everyone else sick then we lose productivity and everyone is in a bad mood.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

fix PTO/sick days.

    Pros

    Free parking. Free gross food.

    Cons

    People thought it was bad during the days when Andrew Conru ran the company, but it only got even worse (and slimier) after Penthouse bought the company.

    Upper management are all men, and unabashedly sexist in both their hiring practices and the way they discuss female employees behind closed doors -- there's already been one high profile sexual harassment case that was settled out of court (look it up). The company has been sued so many times you'll lose count trying to keep track, and the employee turnover rate is the highest I've ever seen. The most talented people leave because of the dysfunctional work process and abusive environment, and new hires quickly have their morale crushed within weeks of signing on - it's not uncommon for new employees to voluntarily quit within their first 4 weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're all beyond hope.

    I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -my job description was accurate and I actually enjoy it most of the time
    -management is reasonable
    -flex hours
    -coworkers are kind, open-minded and competent. Generally helpful, too.
    -if there's politics I'm kept out of it
    -LGBT friendly. Nice for those of us who aren't, too, btw.

    Cons

    -the porn is not my favorite, and it IS part of the job.
    -working from home rarely and by exception
    -commute
    -sick time and vacation time from the same pool. If you get bronchitis, you lose vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -revise vacation/sick time policy.
    -allow employees to work from home one day or even half a day a week, as long as we don't have meetings. Or even on designated spare-the-air days. Or on condition that we work half our normal commute time extra.
