    I have been working at Match.com full-time

    Pros

    Highly competitive compensation, great vacation policies, amazing perks like weekly massages, free food, catered lunches, extremely talented colleagues, and room to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Even though we own the dating market, the bar for our growth (technology and revenue) is always growing and can present a challenge to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job leading the employees and is always timely with performance feedback and encourages thinking outside of the box and give us ample time to take care of our lives outside of work. I've been an employee for a couple of years and honestly have no negative feedback at all.

    Pros

    The people are what makes the difference. Everyone is cool and fun to work with. It's a .com feel even though the company is 20 years old

    Cons

    The headquarters is in Dallas so sometimes communication or collaboration is more difficult due to the physical as well as time defference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition tends to happen quietly. I'd like to see it be more public. I like when upper management gives us a look into the big picture of the company but I wish it'd be more often

    Pros

    Very challenging place to work.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have the people skill. Executives don't believe in customer satisfaction. They only think about how to get people to pay more for the services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your customer and the people that work for you. The people try to speak but management doesn't listen.

    I worked at Match.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Branding experience was valuable. The job itself wasn't involved much in "match making" although the company was "love-centric" and that was pleasant to be around.

    Cons

    They hired me for my expertise in affiliate management area , but I was faced with red tape at every attempt to improve the program and actually execute my area of knowledge. Was expected to be a data-monkey as their internal systems/reporting are not built for affiliate management. Marketing & Affiliate Management are two different things and I wish someone , including my radically conservative former boss (TX based) would have known that before hiring me , especially in a remote position. This is a corporation built best for those who willingly appreciate and embrace drinking the company OJ, and not for outside thinkers or innovators.

    I gave this company 5 stars for career opportunities, as it seems to always be a revolving door. Good luck!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your "wrath" is more of a hindrance than a help. Leaders should lead by example and kindness.
