    I worked at LendingTree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I love the culture there! as many stated before me, they have a work hard play hard culture that I really enjoyed. I was employed when the economy wasn't that great and a lot of long time employee's were at their breaking points and complained a lot.

    As a new hire, I enjoyed what they tried to do and even though a lot things were cut out and put on hold, the perks that were still in effect made the place enjoyable. I can only imagine how much enjoyment I wouldve gotten from Lendingtree in a good economy!

    Also there were lots of opportunities to gain experience in areas beyond your position if you put in the effort.

    Cons

    Pay was a little low and there was a pay increase freeze when I was there. Also people were getting laid off almost daily (more due to the economy than the company) which made things scary every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no problems with management...Hire me again I guess I would say

    I worked at LendingTree full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had a great manager. He trusted my skills set and did not micro manage me or the team.

    Cons

    There wer too many people in decision making positions that had no right or experience doing so. The typical fast past of a dot com often ground to down to long, indecisive and safe decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is new management there, and perhaps things are better. My advise - don't be afraid to go big, go bold and at least try things! Does not work, take it down and hit it again! Trust your employees more.

    I have been working at LendingTree

    Pros

    Charlotte office seems like its a much better environment than Burlingame office.

    Cons

    - Some people in the marketing team are outright fools
    - Pettiness
    - Politics
    - Other bs
    - Every single day I ask myself how certain people were ever promoted
    - Some people ruin it for everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to fire marketing managers who don't meet your goals.

    I worked at LendingTree as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Best part about this company was not having to dress up. Wear jeans and tennis shoes every day if you want or have a beer after work if you feel like it. Coworkers were friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Can't list much since I wasn't there long but they don't hire full timers for entry level development positions. Also the daily meetings are a bit mundane.

    I worked at LendingTree full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Location is convenient to highway

    Cons

    "When banks compete, you win" is something that was innovative at one time. Now, there are many competitors and copycats. It seems LendingTree is just a big lead generation affiliate for the banks and is only valuable when the banks need more leads. Right now, they don't need LendingTree.

    I worked at LendingTree full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Was promised great money and a future.

    Cons

    I was the #1 sales person in my division, never got the raise I was promised, got promoted with no raise, had sales stolen from me, had to prove I earned my commissions repeatedly to get paid on them with no apologies, ever. If you're a 24/7 brown noser, like to be constantly belittled, like fighting for every sale you make and the commissions promised for them, like to be severely micro-managed...than this is the company for you! Otherwise, you have been warned! The company's stock value has gone in the toilet over the last couple of years and they are no longer a Fortune 500 or 1000 company. No surprise since only management gets the big bonuses and they never listen to the people out in the trenches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real! Quit playing favorites and listening to gossip. Different divisions deal with different challenges and you cannot have a "cookie cutter" approach with all sales and clients! Trust your people and quit being so cheap!

    Pros

    It was fun energetic place to work for many years. It had a work hard/play hard atmosphere.

    Cons

    The market downturn revealed its weak leadership, years of weak attempts at diversification, lack of focus, and no real direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move on.
