Pros

Some of the nicest people work at eHarmony, but unfortunately growth opportunities are very limited. Benefits packages are poor as well.

Cons

Marketing strategy changes constantly so employees are unsure what direction company is going in. The company is heavy on the tech side, but doesn't have a strong marketing team in place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to be able to set goals for their direct reports, and focus on helping their reports to grow.

    Work life balance is good. Not good paymaster. Need to step up brand advertising.

    Pros

    -Easy to maintain work life balance.
    -Some engineers are great. Potential for you to learn and apply new technologies.
    -Not many management layers. Can shine within company if you work hard.
    -Still a not a giant engineering team which is good in a way.
    -Get a chance to go to conferences.

    Cons

    -Pay is not good at Software Engineer level.

    -Facing stiff competition right now.

    -Recently the company moved to Santa Monica from Pasadena and many people had to leave as a result. But they have been very slow to get replacements despite knowing that they are facing stiff competition and need people for it.

    -Engineering management, sprint planning and resource allocation in some teams can be a lot better. Last minute deadline setting is not a good idea.

    -The work in engineering is not bad and there's lot of potential to do cool stuff that adds value to company but company has not been serious about Engineering Brand advertising efforts to attract people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve engineering management and set an overall short as well as long term strategy if you want to stand up to competition. Fill the vacant positions quickly. Brand advertising requires more of smartness rather than dollars.
