100% of the CEO
I have been working at Online Buddies full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – The company has a cool atmosphere and is fun to work for. They are good to their employees, offer generous benefits and other perks like free food and drinks and catered lunches. Like anyplace else, it's work, so it's not always amazing and sometimes my manager lacks vision but I've worked at a bunch of places and it's no different anywhere else.
Cons – Well it's gay and adult oriented so it's sometimes a challenge to tell friends what I do. My gay friends have all heard of the company and think it's cool that I work there but with my straight friends, and my parents, and such, it's a little tougher to explain.
The owners aren't that involved but they do come in the office and they can be really offensive. They make some racist comments and talk openly about really personal sex stuff in front of everyone. But for the most part upper management keeps the owners away from us. If they were here every day it'd be a really different, bad thing.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen more to employees - we interact with the customers more than you do. Tell us what's going on and what the future plans are more regularly.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Online Buddies
Pros – Good work/life balance, fairly competitive pay. Good benefits. Low stress working environment most of the time. Decent opportunity for advancement.
Cons – Lots of secret meetings. Significant turnover of senior management. Content of the company's websites can make for some interesting conversations.
Advice to Senior Management – Seek more outside help in improving the business, both from a revenue standpoint and in making it a good place to work.

Pros – Our company is a fun and creative environment, with outstanding opportunity for personal growth within the company. We offer very competitive salaries and a fantastic benefits package. Our headcount stays between 90 - 100 employees, so every voice is heard. Our corporate culture is one of our strongest attributes. We're privately held, profitable, and have seen our revenue increase year over year since inception. Our benefits package has also continued to improve year over year.
Cons – As with any rapidly growing organization, employees strive for information and management sometimes does not communicate enough. This has been brought up during several all staff assemblies and management has already begun to make changes.
Advice to Senior Management – I can't think of any input or advice. Management is very receptive to the needs of their employees and strives to make this a company people want to come to everyday.
