    I have been working at IAC full-time

    Pros

    casual, great benefits, getting stuff done

    Cons

    profit sharing doesn't trickle down, leadership is very closed

    Advice to Management

    open up - your employees are more than cogs

    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 Management

    Use real metrics to measure employee performance.


  3. It was cool to work there, parties and a fun environment. Not much room for promotion & raises were small and not often.

    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 Management

    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

    awesome building and environment to work in, always a lot of interesting people and events happening. Also throw a killer holiday party.

    Cons

    not a clear path for career development. questionable hr practices when letting people go, and not a lot of feedback as to how you are performing

    Advice to Management

    clear review process and transparency in personnel decision making. being left in the dark is how you loss really good people.

    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 Management

    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.

    free snacks, bagel friday, great service by the facility folks, pretty building, great holiday party, great view from the 9th floor

    Cons

    poor management and leadership, extravagant spending on things that are not needed or necessary within the companies, young kids with huge sense of entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    not sure what kind of advice i could give to the leadership of IAC since i know it wouldn't matter what i say here.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting business model, forward thinking in the media space

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the top; favoritism; little respect for due process

    Advice to Management

    its all about the business and not about the employees; for better retention think about the employees who are not the "favorites"


  11. Don't go to Edison if you want to build a career.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Everyone else except the management people are very talented engineers. The very few remaining good engineers are very friendly, helpful, and respectful. You can learn new stuff.

    Cons

    Management is dysfunctional, promotions are based on whether you work on the hottest project at the time of evaluation and not on your past full year of work. Annual review is useless. No career or salary growth unless you know the right people. Talent is unhappy and leaving rapidly. HR person is wonderful but powerless.

    Advice to Management

    Lay off more managers. Hire more engineers. 2 layers of managers are enough for an efficient productive company. Focus on career growth. Stop giving useless gifts. Remuneration and company events matter more.
