      I worked at Ask Applications full-time

      Pros

      -Flexible time off -Office snacks/drinks -Location outside of NYC (pro for some people)

      Cons

      -The business is a state of decline, with absolutely no vision or plan on how to improve things (read the IAC quarterly earnings report). They are willing to just ride it out for as long as it will make money, while cutting "expenses" (people) along the way. -Every strategic decision made is to meet the quarterly IAC goals, not to benefit users of the product or employees. -Management does not care about its employees,...

      Advice to Management

      Stop skewing the numbers to tell the story you think your employees want to hear. Everyone sees what is going on, be honest and try to work together to answer the tough questions and keep the business alive. Treat your employees like you actually care, not just for some PR stunt.

      Company has made changes over time to position itself to be more successful. Yonkers office is not far from major transportation. Small office of well mannered and talented people. Great benefits and work/life balance.

      Lots of information stored in people’s heads. Needs to be a little more organized.

      Continue on the path forward. Good things are ahead for IAC Apps
