I have been working at eHarmony

Pros

80% of time there is free food around.
Lots of events for employees
Weekly all-hands standup meeting with most important updates.
Agile development practices
Frequent talks and meetups plus reading groups.
Very family friendly - good work/life balance.
Subsidized chair massage and gym membership.
Quick to adopt new technologies.

Cons

There used to be a bit of reluctance to try new things out but this seems to have changed with new CEO (Jeremy Verba - ex Zynga).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not be afraid to innovate more. Make the site at least as simple and intuitive as the mobile apps.

    Pros

    - Surrounded by smart people
    - I know others have reviewed the benefits as poor, but they seem good to me
    - Friendly leadership
    - Frequent all-company events
    - The company's mission is personally fulfilling

    Cons

    - Opportunities for advancement are just okay
    - The company has been slow to respond to a changing market and economic challenges

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give those in positions of accountability (but not the highest levels of decision-making) more freedom to act on their ideas and instincts.

    Nice people trying to do a nice thing for the world, but losing focus on why they started this in the first place.

    I worked at eHarmony

    Pros

    Lots of really smart people (in some departments)
    Tons of free food!

    Cons

    Little room for career advancement
    Poor benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus your priorities on what built eHarmony to be what it once was. Side projects/initiatives like Jazzed are a waste of everybody's time.

    Re-align your business practices with the message you communicate - practice what you preach. For a company that supposedly cares about its customers, the business practices often suggest otherwise.

    You give off a really poor impression when you lay off a whole bunch of people and then go on a big hiring spree weeks later.
