    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.

    IAC is a great environment. Some pros, some cons, balances out.

    Pros

    NY HQ building in Chelsea is fantastic. Good mix of young and veteran employees all under one roof. Differing personalities with differing companies. Good mix all around. The benefits are great and the free snacks are good too.

    Cons

    The support organization is lacking good leaders. Top talent is not recognized due to the lack of focus and leadership from so called managers. Huge disconnect between the department head and the top performing low level employees. In short, some managers are middle men who provide little value to the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use real metrics to measure employee performance.

    I have been working at IAC

    Pros

    Perks, benefits are good. good employee motivation. employee recognition is good. Good communication from top down leadership. Global brand presence which is good on your resume.

    Cons

    Need solid strategy to turn ship around. Employee morale needs to be boosted. Too many overlapping roles within the company. Unless you have a good boss, very minimal involvements from HR coordinators for your career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forcing employees to do a job is not worth for long run. Listen to employee's suggestions (product, marketing ideas) that are well proven and revenue positive plans.
