A Good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at FriendFinder Networks

ProsCompetitive paid and good benefits. Casual work environment. Good people to be around with. Very appreciative of new Hirers with good welcome lunch. Room for advancement and career growth.

ConsNot enough Paid Time OFF. OK medical Insurance for employees with family, no options to choose from. Company stock is not for everyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on Agile development. Slow down a bit with feature release. Try to keep feature request and design before development begins if possible.

Very Challenging, yet very rewarding

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at FriendFinder Networks

ProsThe best thing about working at FriendFinder Networks is the people! I feel that I'm surrounded with very skilled co-workers that are not only good at their jobs, but friendly and helpful as well. The environment is fast paced which makes it challenging, but fun with a casual feel. The work hours are also very flexible and it seems to be a pretty stable company. Still hiring while other companies are downsizing.

ConsThe only downside to working at FriendFinder is not a lot of telecommuting opportunities.

great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I have been working at FriendFinder Networks

ProsFriendFinder is a very stable company. I feel very comfortable coming to work everyday not to worry about my job. Lots of people have been working here for a very long time. People here are very nice to work with. They help each other and have a great teamwork environment. Benefits are great. Medical insurance is the most I like to work here. I pay absolutely nothing for my whole family (3 people) with Kaiser. The company provide free breakfast and lunch from Monday to Thursday and provide reimbursement for training classes for employees career growth. The company also has 401K $ to $ match up 3% salary, and commuter's check just mention a few. The company hire all levels employees so the new grades have opportunities to get into the door (most other companies won't hire entry level people). The company very cares to balance workers' workload and their life seldom to ask workers to work overtime (this is really hard to find in most of the companies in bay area).

ConsIf the company can match the salary level on the market, that will put the company to be one of the best companies to work in bay area.
