    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.

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

    Pros

    Make no mistake, this is a cutting edge company using very solid, Silicon Valley-esque technologies - linux, Java, node.js, Hadoop, MongoDB, flash storage, Oracle (of course), etc.

    The new and returned leadership has turned the company around from where it...paused...a few years ago, such that market share, user base, excellence, and revenue has never been higher.

    The working environment is fun and relaxed while also being challenging and focused on delivery, so they maintain that balance pretty well. Meetings are effective for the most part and held to a minimum. The pace is already fast and picking up steam. Decisions are data driven, which is always refreshing. Politics seem to be on the very low side, as most of those so inclined left the company in the last two years. There's a lot of genuine collaboration and helpfulness between teams.

    Cons

    Hard to pick any while the business is doing so well and the technology projects are so interesting. There are a few key open roles that still need to be filled, so until those positions are filled properly a few folks are either pulling double duty or some junior folks are taking on stretch assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be passionate, continue to take care of the rank and file, continue to share information as you have been, let's all protect the wonderful culture and mission and responsibility we've got! Steady as she goes!

    I have been working at eHarmony full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture is unique and evolving. Everyone helps each other.
    The business keeps going up after major issues in the past.
    The mission is still special even after 14 years in business.
    The executive committee is the strongest I have ever seen.

    Cons

    The drive to Santa Monica is the worst.
    The restaurants around the office are non-existent.
    The hours could sometimes be long.
    Not many people actually live in Santa Monica.

    I have been working at eHarmony

    Pros

    The working environment here is amazing. Everyone's attitude is positive and cooperative. eHarmony is in the midst of a great upward trend with everyone onboard to turn the company around. People are fully aware that only a couple of years ago, things were less than ideal and now they're set to make the necessary changes. Compensation is also competitive, especially given the size of the company. The dating space has a lot of room for growth and expect eHarmony to stay on top and to innovate.

    Cons

    None. I can't really thinking of anything negative to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things going the way they are now. We have great motivating leaders here.

    Dedicated co-workers, healthy and collaborative atmosphere, great benefits, free food and fun company outings.

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