Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you are into politics and gaining success from it. This is your place!

Cons

Politics rampant within the entire company. Bully emails from CEO. I can't tell you how many of them I have forwarded to friends that are not employed at FFN. They are always shocked.

Advice to Management

Your employees mirror your leadership. Epic fail.

    I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    can't think of a thing

    Cons

    too many at corporate - the daycare attitude - the micro-managing, the security of the office supplies vs the integrity of the network / information; the segregation of favorites vs other employees, etc., etc, etc

    Advice to Management

    pay well for good / qualified people - loose the friends that are only in the position they are in because of friendship and nothing else

    I have been working at FriendFinder Networks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The projects I am assigned are generally interesting and allow me to grow my skill set.
    Most colleagues are affable and professional.
    GLBT friendly
    There is a free lunch, although it's generally high-fat.

    Cons

    The porn is not really my thing
    Outdated policies include no working from home and, in the bay area with its unpredictable traffic, extreme emphasis on being on time. These are placed at higher importance over productivity.
    lunchbreak policy: "everyone takes some kind of break", so it is counted against you even if you work through lunch and take nothing but bio-breaks. (yeah, that's illegal in California)
    Discourage direct communication with Taiwan office.

    Advice to Management

    If you're not willing to offer top dollar to good employees, at least be more flexible with hours. Get with the times- there are plenty of ways to ensure that employees working remotely are getting something done.
