    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.

    Pros

    There was a great work/life balance and true feeling of appreciation for employees. Seemless communication across all departments/levels of seniority.

    Cons

    There was a hiring freeze while I was employed, making it hard for me to stay within the company, though I really wanted to.

    Pros

    IAC offers good benefits and the people are great to work for. They also provide free snacks and drinks every day.

    Cons

    The location is far from the subway and the neighborhood is a little shady. There are not enough stores/restaurants around for lunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish there was more career development at IAC. There needs to be some kind of mentor or someone who can help in determining your career path.
