    I worked at IAC full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to advance through internal recruitment.

    Commitment to new technologies and ideas.

    A fair and reasonable review process that measures employee growth.

    Cons

    As with any online company, work/life balance can be a challenge. Management, particularly upper management, is siloed away from the lower ranks, which can make employees feel like they're not as connected to the company as a whole as they may like to be.

    Pros

    -People: The people here are the best. By best, I mean the rank and file.
    -Pay: People are paid fairly. Compensation is fairly high
    -Office: The office is nice.

    Cons

    -Management: Management has no clue about anything. They should fire the entire senior staff. There was a time when things were good and they could be better.

  9. Pretty directionless

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at IAC

    Pros

    Good bonus program, solid 401K, Reasonably decent office supplies, free snacks in some offices

    Cons

    Erratic leadership, still operates very much like a holding company, seems most concerned with leveraging their roster of companies to help shore up their online dating group vs offer compelling services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop collecting dead brands and invest in building useful services instead
