    I have been working at eHarmony full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The management and leadership are firing on all cylinders. After years of decline, the company is back with effective marketing, products and innovative matchmaking. The culture is intelligent and friendly with many company events and meaningful benefits. Nice to have a team that is making decisions effectively and not scared to take risks. The results speak for themselves.

    Cons

    The Santa Monica office location is very difficult to get to for many employees, we are looking forward to moving to Westwood to reduce everyone's commute. Keep providing more communication on the new verticals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying well and providing solid benefits. Thanks for creating a culture of sharing. Nice to see all those successful couples around the office and a stable company.

    Pros

    Dedicated co-workers, healthy and collaborative atmosphere, great benefits, free food and fun company outings. Was immediately struck by the effective communication between team members as well as the positive atmosphere. It is great working someplace where people are optimistic about the company and product.

    Cons

    While communication within specific teams is fast and effective, communication between teams needs improving.

    Pros

    Great company culture, very relaxed office, free snacks and drinks in every corner, bikes to ride around Santa Monica, decent benefits, quarterly outings and team building, good perks, free lunch Wednesdays, free dodger tickets, thirsty Thursdays, awesome management, hard work is recognized, gym downstairs is subsidized.

    Cons

    Office space is not set up for easy collaboration with other teams. However, with the new office location coming up next year, hopefully, we can plan for a more open space type of set up.

    I have been working at eHarmony full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    One thing I've noticed on our team is that eHarmony takes the time to hire the right people. Since it's a highly collaborative environment with even our VPs sitting out on the floor with us, it's important to find people who fit our team and company culture. That's primarily the reason why I love coming into work everyday.

    The brand is expanding into different avenues, which is exciting. It shows we're growing and being creative, going beyond what eHarmony has been known for-- online dating and classic couple commercials. The design, image and marketing of eHarmony has been completely renovated within the last couple of years. The website and all social media platforms are fun and easy to view and use. The company itself has experienced a complete turnaround from prior years. The management team is probably the best I've seen within my experience working in corporate. We have biweekly meetings open to all employees that update everyone on what every department is working on. We're always on the same page in that way. The open door policy helps too. This is a big brand company that has managed to keep a family feel.

    Work-life balance is great, they have all kinds of events that encourage us to invite our family. They have nice perks too. I haven't used their bikes to go to the beach yet but it's on my to-do list for lunch hour someday.

    Cons

    HMO Insurance is covered by company. If you want PPO though, the employee contribution rates are pretty high compared to my previous employers.

    Pros

    It's a family feel with a start-up attitude. The org structure feels very flat, so management are open to ideas and input from all levels. It's a 'go get-em' empowering environment - which is great and gives you the motivation to do your job well and deliver that extra something special for a brand that has a bigger purpose in life - connecting people and helping them find love.

    Cons

    So far, so good - no cons yet. Good career growth opps; good training packages and great benefits (considerably more than in my last job e.g health, travel, gym, decent holiday allowance etc) all packaged alongside a great team.

    Pros

    eHarmony has a great work/life balance. There are a lot of perks such as free lunch, snacks/drinks, etc, in house masseuse once a week, company bicycles to ride around besides health insurance, pet insurance, gym & transportation subsidies. Nice working environment. Good people.

    Cons

    Some departments get more preferential treatments. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees efforts, esp when they go above and beyond their job.
