    Pros

    The building, with its free snacks, bagels, dog days, etc., and colleagues can be delightful. If you like a high-tempo, high demand workplace, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Location is not great. Management sometimes doesn't know what it wants.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. (Management was great about vacations, WFH, etc.) Pay was reasonable. People were nice, if generally uninspiring. Lots of team functions/happy hours (though this may be a negative in some people's books).

    Cons

    IAC runs their portfolio companies with a very short-term mindset. It's all quarterly targets and "what's the Street gonna think?" This makes transformative product development nearly impossible. (If you're not willing to sacrifice ANY near-term revenue, it's gonna be pretty tricky to come up with the Next Big Thing.)

    Also, no real growth opportunities across IAC companies. (It's not particularly easy for a mid-level employee to transition from one IAC company to another. You have to apply as if you were an outside candidate, at which point you might as well apply to a sexier, faster-growing outside company.)

    All leads to a pretty stagnant, second/third-tier feeling company. IAC is the anti-Google.

    Advice to Management

    Address the issues outlined in the "Cons" box above. Also, go easy on the corporate-speak. It fell out of fashion 20 years ago, and it's not generally useful or descriptive.

    Pros

    Unlimited soft drinks/great coffee machine/treats. Holiday party is a big event.

    Cons

    Benefits and compensation is not up to par for mid-level leaders. Management support is extremely lacking with poor job advancement within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Support the employees better, allowing them to grow within the business. Don't let personal relationships influence the decision making. Be loyal to those who have helped grow the business. Take pride in allowing others to grow and learn and not worry strictly on your own personal success.

    A fast paced interesting Company that is very entrepreneurial for a large Company. This allowas and employee to get involved in numerous tasks and projects that allow an employee to keep learning new skills.

    Employees can get overwhelmed with projects if the employee does not speak up about their work load.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing employees to move and see new projects.
