    Pros

    Interesting field and very diverse technology stack (Java, Scala, Erlang, Perl and many back end systems) that can provide a good learning experience. Free drinks and good espresso machine.

    Cons

    Permanent lack of resources, developers will often scavenge parts from the desktops of former developers that have moved on to other opportunities. The company has a culture of permanently fighting fires rather than investing up front to lower total costs. Non-competitive wages. Many Anglophone expats that don't speak French at all (could be a pro if you don't speak French I suppose).

  2. Great company culture! Cool neighborhood.

    Smaller company, business type not suited for everyone.

    Pros

    Lovely environment. People are just too nice and easy going. You can learn a lot of stuff from co workers and they are always available for help.

    Cons

    Business is in the steady stage, which means it is not growing fast. Not enough creative features to the website.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new growth point. Not necessarily in online dating.
