    I worked at IAC as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, lots of opportunity for growth, mobility between all the subsidiaries, basically no dress code, good location in Chelsea

    Cons

    Sometimes too casual, a lot of young people that don't necessarily seem to be dedicated employees, some companies go flop within IAC because it funds a lot of internet brands

    Very flexible working environment, wonderful people, multiple subsidiaries you can check out.

    Large company/small company dichotomy is great; Health coverage is comparatively bad

    I have been working at IAC full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love the model of a large company which owns several small companies (one of which, I work for) because you get the small company feel with the big company security.

    Cons

    If you're not on the west coast IAC's Aetna PPO is pretty horrible compared to others in the same industry. $300 deductible and 15% coinsurance! I've never before had a deductible or coinsurance under any company-provided health insurance in my long carrer. This is something you should strongly consider when making the decision to work for an IAC company if you will not be based on the west coast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simple: give us a better health insurance option.

    Pros

    Nice people, decent benefits and hours, ok pay

    Cons

    Its a tough deal if you are signing on contractors to the network - you can expect to be hearing back from them ... outraged about the quality of the "leads" you are selling them. They sell a lot of bogus leads.
