    Pros

    Work/life is highly valued at the company. Happy hours every two weeks are nice too. The employees are extremely friendly, and it has a very diverse group of people. They also throw an amazing Christmas party, and the building is really cool.

    Cons

    Location in Chelsea Piers is highly inaccessible. Living outside of the city makes the commute a hell. Bad weather will ruin your already miserable commute.

    Large company, well-financed, CEO encourages innovation, multiple locations, telecommuting possible. Good experience with this company, they encourage innovative thinking and progressive ideas. Management responds well, rewards successes.

    Pros

    Exposure to many brands and business models. Constant opportunity to learn and advance. You're never bored. Highly intelligent and experienced execs.

    Cons

    There's some degree of hubris because people are in close proximity to the star power of Barry Diller, but it's manageable and nothing more than at any other public company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    -Beautiful offices with great perks
    -Feels like a startup, with all the benefits of a big company - the best of both worlds really..
    -Good work-life balance.
    -The IAC building hosts several IAC businesses (Vimeo, CollegeHumor, The Daily Beast etc.), which means that you get to run into and work with some amazing people.

    Cons

    -Location - only 3 subway lines, and even those are a 15-min walk
    -Does feel a little too corporate at times, even if you work for one of the smaller businesses (everyone answers to IAC Corporate at the end of the day)
    -Considering how much money Mr. Diller spends on look and feel, he could invest more into health benefits to keep his employees happy. The plans they offer are all expensive and not that great.

    Advice to Management

    By focusing on the big picture, you often miss the details. Talk more to middle management to learn what the real needs of individual employees and departments are.

    Pros

    Large portfolio of companies, loose governance over individual holdings allows for start up feeling with the comfort of Fortune 100 security.

    Cons

    Changes at the company are often brisk and without warning, so risk averse people might not find the environment palatable. A bit cutthroat at the corporate level

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    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 Management

    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


  10. Great people to work with, but the company itself had some room to grow to keep up with the times.

    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 Management

    Get ahead of the curve instead of reacting to it.
