    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.

  3. Pretty directionless

    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 Management

    Stop collecting dead brands and invest in building useful services instead

    Pros

    Tremendous benefits, competitive salary, and truly values engineering and innovation

    Cons

    None really. It's a good place to work. Some areas could be better, but grown ups shouldn't complain about the kind of cookies in the break room.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more active role in the community and improve developer relations

    During my time here, there were a lot of outside events held to create a fun and tightly knit community. It was easy to fit in and I worked with different divisions

    needs more relevant work depending on your job title

    Pros

    Worked for Home Advisor and had a great experience being introduced to inside sales. Recommend it for anyone looking to start their career in this field.

    Cons

    Would have liked to see more recognition for sales and opportunity for career advancement, unfortunately they seemed a bit bios based when promoting individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize team members based on leadership abilities rather than the clicks they were associated with.

    Pros

    I have free parking - in NYC! There are lots of free snacks on every floor, free soda, coffee, etc. Compensation is not bad, although I could be doing better. 401-K matching. Good dental and vision coverage; pretty good medical coverage, and several options. FSA and HSA accounts. Company does an organized volunteer day, health fair days, and blood drives yearly. IAC has a wide array of subsidiary companies, various web properties. Generally good people working at each subsidiary. I've worked at 3 different subs: The company works hard to keep good people here. If they get laid off at one subsidiary, HR tries hard to find a job for them at another.

    Cons

    The corporate culture, instilled from the top down, is one of competition between subsidiaries. There's a Darwinian survival of the fittest atmosphere. That's great but it engenders no cooperation or synergy. There's a lot of recreating the wheel that goes on, a lot of wasted time, effort, and resources that could be put to such better use. Further, in the larger subs, this culture trickles down and even different units in one subsidiary can find themselves in competition. It's as silly as people from different projects not socializing. People from different companies DEFINITELY don't socialize. This is a really weird, isolating practice that is counterproductive and wasteful. Lastly, on another subject, the vacation policy is VERY stingy. Two weeks per year until you have been here five or even six years, depending on the subsidiary (although some do have an unlimited vacation policy, but none I've worked for).

    Advice to Management

    Consider how much money could be saved by exploiting synergies between companies; by finding ways to cooperatively develop systems that more than one subsidiary company needs; by merging HR functions from all subsidiaries and standardizing HR policies across all of them. Consider how much morale would be improved without this dog-eat-dog mentality coming from the very top down.
