    Pros

    Smart people, hard working, good benefits, fun location

    Cons

    Bad mid-level managers, poor leadership but perhaps too young to handle team management/leadership regardless of smarts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the gulf between Barry Diller's lieutenants and the rank-and-file, who, because they are so smart, are adrift there after a year with not much guidance from anyone that could even possibly help

    Pros

    -If you are on the sales team for any of IAC's companies (Match, Urbanspoon, Citygrid, etc) it is a fun environment where I think you will definately meet great people.

    Cons

    -Pricing on some of the services you sell are sky high due to 3rd party outsourcing.
    -Some of the websites (not all) are behind the times.
    -Felt like IAC was always reacting to what other companies were doing, rather than pioneering the way like they did in the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get ahead of the curve instead of reacting to it.

    Pros

    They really appreciate their employees and everyone is more like family than coworkers. Things are pretty casual at work, but still professional. A lot of employees are young and so the atmosphere is oftentimes pretty relaxed. They generously acknowledge and reward hard work.

    Cons

    vacation days are pretty limited. 10 days a year, but that's pretty standard in new york city.
